Scania Helps Ashville Become One Stop Shop For Groundworks
Ashville Aggregates Ltd continues to expand its Scania fleet with a range of multi-purpose Scania trucks becoming a one stop shop for groundworks.
With no previous experience or family legacy behind him, Daniel Louisy, Managing Director of Ashville Aggregates Ltd, started out with a single used grabber. Ashville Aggregates Ltd now has 20 multi-purpose lorries with Scanias making up 50% of the fleet.
Having purchased non-Scania used trucks in his early years, Daniel encountered a problem, ‘I was trying to purchase additional used trucks, but I found that I was not getting a response. The sales rep wouldn’t return my calls, in the end I received a call from Maks Stabrawa from Scania Great Britain and the rest is history’.
Maks’ knowledge of the trucks encouraged Daniel to purchase new Scania trucks, the euro 6 Scania supported an improved total operating economy compared to older trucks, whilst enabling diversity meaning they can operate multi-functional requirements.
Karl Wicks from Scania Financial Services was then introduced to provide a tailored financial solution to purchase the new trucks. Ashville finance their vehicles on hire purchase with Flexi-Buy and R&M.
Karl was able to spread the deposit over several months, deferring some payments to create a lower manageable monthly payment whilst supporting the customers cash flow needs. Daniel says ‘Karl took the time to understand my business and its needs before structuring the deal. Being able to spread my deposit enables me to have better cash flow and to grow my business’.
The key difference to other truck and finance providers Daniel explains is that ‘Karl and Scania Financial Services understand running lorries and that’s important to me. I will only buy Scanias going forward and the service from Maks and Karl makes doing a deal simple and I trust that they will put the interest of my business first’.
On the working relationship Karl Wicks says, ‘It’s a pleasure to work with Daniel, he knows what he wants to do and being able to work in partnership with Daniel and Maks to support his ambition and help his business grow is rewarding.’
Due to the successful partnerships in place in the South East region Scania Financial Services now have an additional Relationship Executive, Katie O’Sullivan, who is in place with immediate effect to support the services on offer to our customers.
