Righton picks Fraikin for fleet contract

Fraikin has won a contract to supply a fleet of 11 vehicles to Righton, which supplies brass, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, high integrity alloys, industrial plastics and aluminum composite materials.

It is supplying a range of 7.0 tonne, 12 tonne and 18 tonne trucks, including double deck curtainside and sliding canopied bodies.

It advised Righton to switch from CF65 Series DAF to LF55 Series DAF along with the inclusion of a full air kit management system and AS Tronic gearbox across all vehicle sizes. This will contribute to improved fuel economy and a safer driving environment.

Similarly, it recommended that 7.0 tonne Iveco trucks would be better suited to Righton’s business than the 7.5 tonne trucks it was already running.
