Free Flow Concrete mixes up fleet with first Renault Kerax

Renault Kerax

Ready mix concrete supplier, Free Flow Concrete Ltd., has taken delivery of its first Renault truck; a Renault Kerax 430.32 8x4 with the Optidriver+ automated gearbox. The Euro 5 EEV truck was supplied through Renault Trucks Essex and joins the company’s fleet of three Scanias.
The new Renault Kerax is fitted with a Reimer R950 mobile batching plant, supplied and fitted by Mastercrete Ltd. It will be used to supply and mix a range of concrete for local building projects in the Worcestershire area, including foundations, garage bases, flooring, commercial and agricultural requirements.
Simon Lang, Owner, Free Flow Concrete, says: “Historically we have always had Scanias but we were offered the chance to trial a demo Renault Kerax tipper. I was extremely impressed with the demo vehicle, the Kerax was great to drive, the drivetrain is smooth and the Optidriver+ gearbox is very efficient.”
He continues: “We supply concrete to a range of customers, from home owners to motorway construction projects, so we need a reliable truck. We have had problems in the past with the reliability of trucks on our fleet so we were attracted to the Kerax’s reputation for reliability, as well as Renault’s service support.”
Excellent dealer service was also said to have played a big part in the company’s decision to move to Renault and the Renault Kerax three year warranty sealed the deal.
Free Flow Concrete is an independent, family business established in 2000. The company supplies freshly produced concrete from computer controlled and calibrated Reimer Volumetric Mixers. Based in Redditch, Worcestershire, Free Flow Concrete operates across Worcestershire and Warwickshire, including Bromsgrove and Droitwich.
