The UK’s largest independent galvanizing specialists, W Corbett and Co., has taken delivery of eight new Renault Premium trucks, through Renault Trucks Midlands. In an important conquest deal, the three new Euro 5, 6x2 Renault Premium 450.25 tractor units and five Renault Premium Distribution 240.18s, with 6m drop side bodies, are the first Renaults to join the company’s previously all Mercedes and Iveco fleet. 


The new additions to the fleet will be used to transport steel products to W Corbett’s Telford based sites and deliver the finished, galvanized, products back to customers throughout the UK.


The company cited the Renault Premium’s greener, fuel efficient credentials as an important purchase decision. Mark Statham, Managing Director, W Corbetts, commented: “The new Euro 5 Renault Premiums utilise AdBlue technology, making them ‘greener’ and more fuel efficient. This not only gives an improved economy but also continues our company’s commitment towards the environment. Both the styling of the new Premiums and ‘can do’ attitude of Renault Trucks and Renault Trucks Midlands impressed us and a tight delivery schedule was met. Overall I feel that the Renault Premium is an excellent long term value for money option and we are very satisfied with the new additions to our fleet.”


Founded in 1860 in Wellington, Shropshire, W Corbett and Co. (Galvanizing) Ltd relocated to its current purpose built 6 acre site at Halesfield, Telford in 1999, which was further extended in 2005. Chairman of the company, Mr. AS Rai’s investment, vision and principles have seen the business grow with a further large scale galvanizing plant expansion planned at the Brockton Business Park, Telford.
