Stovax warms to Canter and Vito30 April 2010

Three new vehicles have been added to the Stovax Group, in response to continuing growth at the stove and fireplace manufacturer.

The investment covers one 7.5-tonne Mitsubishi Fuso Canter truck and two Vito vans, all of which being supplied by the City West Commercials dealership in Exeter.

Stovax's new Canter 7C15 has a lightweight curtainside body by Bristol-based specialist AJ Bracey. Its long-bodied 2.7-tonne Mercedes-Benz Vito 111CDI vans, meanwhile, were specified with optional air-conditioning and Comfort drivers' seats; they represent extensions to the Stovax Group fleet and are now being used by service engineers and as training support units.

"Over the last couple of years we have enjoyed a significant surge in demand and this year the trend has continued. These new vehicles will quite literally help to drive our ongoing growth.

"We chose the Canter for its market-leading payload, which makes it more productive than any other vehicle in the 7.5-tonne weight segment and also helps us to minimise our fuel consumption and distribution costs," says Stovax and Gazco Group associate commercial director Ed Henry.

He continues: "We can carry a full four tonnes on our new truck and its compact external dimensions mean it is also very manoeuvrable, which is a big advantage when it comes to moving quickly between our many local sites."
