MAN Truck & Bus UK has supplied 16 tractor units and four curtainsiders to Topps Tiles.

The retailer has taken delivery of 16 MAN TGX tractor units and four MAN TGS curtainsiders. 

The new vehicles, which are on an 18 month rental agreement, all sport the redesigned Topps Tiles livery. They will be used on multi-drop runs throughout the UK.

Topps Tiles’ national transport manager Kevin Smith said: “We have undergone a full tender process for everything from tyres to running costs and we invited all the manufacturers to take part. MAN came through for us in terms of what it can offer. It is an all-in-one package that delivers everything we were looking for. 

“It was against all the other big manufacturers and did a great job creating the package that won the tender.

MAN sales executive Lee Stilling said: “Topps Tiles has 20 new MANs on the road and the partnership between the two companies includes plans for more vehicles to be supplied in 2018.”
