UNEC de­liv­ers 7 DAF trac­tor units to EUROCEM Ltd

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

Fol­low­ing the re­cent de­liv­ery of four DAF con­crete mixer trucks to Attard Broth­ers, two fuel trans­porta­tion trucks to Cas­sar Petroleum Ltd and four trac­tor units to At­trans Ltd, United Equip­ment Co. (UNEC) Ltd. has now de­liv­ered seven DAF trac­tor units to EUROCEM Ltd.

United Equip­ment Co. (UNEC) Ltd is a sub­sidiary com­pany of Bon­nici Group and acts as the au­tho­rized rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the DAF brand in Malta.

“This lat­est de­liv­ery of seven trac­tor units to EUROCEM Ltd is yet an­other vote of con­fi­dence in the DAF brand and re­flects its grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion in Malta,” said John Bonello, sales ex­ec­u­tive at UNEC Ltd.”

“As DAF’s of­fi­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Malta, we are proud of ev­ery DAF ve­hi­cle we de­liver. With ev­ery truck or trac­tor unit we de­liver, we know we are en­abling our cus­tomers to drive their business bet­ter and more ef­fec­tively. This is due to the fuel ef­fi­ciency, the pre­mium build, the tech­nol­ogy and the un­equalled com­fort and han­dling they of­fer to its driv­ers. These are the main qual­i­ties that de­fine the DAF brand and con­trib­ute to the brand’s grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity in Malta,” Mr Bonello added.

Founded this year, EUROCEM Ltd is a new com­pany that spe­cial­izes mainly in the bulk im­por­ta­tion of ce­ment prod­ucts.

Mal­colm Gin­gell, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of EUROCEM Ltd, said, “The in­dus­try is go­ing through great shakes and with in­creased de­mand comes in­creased re­spon­si­bil­ity to op­er­ate more ef­fi­ciently both in terms of out­put as well as with mat­ters re­lated to the en­vi­ron­ment. This is why we de­cided to opt for DAF trac­tor trucks be­cause their qual­ity stan­dards will help us op­er­ate in a more ecofriendly en­vi­ron­ment and with a lesser carbon foot­print.”

The trac­tor truck mod­els all come with an MX-13 6 cylin­der 12.9 Litre en­gine and Ex­haust Emis­sion Euro 6. These mod­els also fea­ture an au­to­mated AS tonic 12 speed gear­box which in­cludes Fast Shift, Eco Roll and Hill Start As­sist. All mod­els are ADR ap­proved as per safety reg­u­la­tion cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Es­tab­lished in 1928, DAF is a truck man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany based in the Nether­lands and has a truck dis­tri­bu­tion net­work across the world.

“Min­i­miz­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of its prod­ucts is an in­te­grated part of DAF’s de­vel­op­ment process,” Mr Bonello said.

“Through its es­tab­lished ‘EcoDe­sign’ poli­cies, DAF looks for so­lu­tions that are good for the en­vi­ron­ment and im­prove the ef­fi­ciency of its trucks. DAF was in fact one of the first Euro­pean truck man­u­fac­tur­ers that started pro­duc­tion of its hy­brid dis­tri­bu­tion trucks, based on a par­al­lel diesel/elec­tric hy­brid sys­tem. Through this sys­tem, DAF trucks can achieve sav­ings in fuel con­sump­tion and there­fore CO2 emis­sions of up to 20 per cent.”
