Construction materials group GRS has added eight Scania Super 460Ps to its fleet, representing an investment of more than £1m.

The new 460P configuration trucks have been put straight to work for GRS Building Products, delivering bagged aggregates, concrete blocks and paving slabs to builders merchants nationwide.

GRS plant and logistics MD Matthew Johanson said: “Taking delivery of these new Scanias represents another major transport investment for GRS.

“Today we’re proud to operate one of the most advanced vehicle fleets of its kind in the country. That means we can offer better reliability and service for our customers, with improved efficiency and environmental performance, as well as enhanced road safety.

“We always take care to choose the right vehicles for the different kinds of work done by different parts of our fleet, and these new Scania Super 460Ps are well-suited to the job they’ll be doing for GRS.”

The eight new tractor units were gathered at Scania GB’s south west headquarters in Bridgwater, Somerset before heading out across the UK to join the 170 trucks in the expanding GRS fleet.
