Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in the frame again for CR Smith 11 July 2012

Scottish home improvement company CR Smith has placed an order for 22 Long-bodied Sprinter 313CDIs, all supplied by Aberdeen dealer John R Weir Truck & Van.

The new vans, which have now begun entering service, are powered by the 2.1-litre Euro 5 engine producing 129bhp.

The Mercedes-Benz 313CDI is 15% more frugal at the pumps than its earlier cousin, equating to an extra 4.5mpg, while CO2 emissions are down by 13%.

CR Smith's new vans join a fleet of 85 vehicles, which is dominated by 3.5-tonne Sprinters. The firm also has two Mercedes-Benz trucks – an 18-tonner that carries demountable boxes, and a 10-tonne curtansider, both of which also arrived via the same dealer.

"We've been running Mercedes-Benz vans for over 30 years and have great relationships – not only with John R Weir, but also with the other dealers we rely on to maintain our vehicles," confirms CR Smith fleet manager Ian Darroch.
