Belgian tanker specialist, LAG Trailers, reintroduced its hopper for cement transportation in the UK market, following this year’s Commercial Vehicles Show.
Naked Brexit or not, the OEM said in a statement that it is doing well over the channel. LAG Trailers has been working with local partners Williams Trailer Services and TIP Trailers for 20 years to supply the market with fuel tankers, bulk trailers and tankers.
LAG Trailers CEO, Rob Ramaekers, said the business took its time to successfully tackle and re-enter the UK market – market confidence is therefore not out of place.
“We are not taking a leap of faith here,” he said. “We know the product and studied the market. The hopper is also a natural addition to our range of bulk products. We now offer the total package and are not completely surprised by the first figures from England.”
By the end of June, LAG Trailers confirmed the sale of 40 of its hopper units with different orders in the pipeline.
