Dennison Rentals, the truck rental division of Dennison Commercials, based in Ballyclare, Northern Ireland, has recently supplied seven Volvo FM tractor units to newly-founded business, Wylie Transport Ltd.
Owner of Wylie Transport, Phillip Wylie, has a 13-year track-record as a Transport Manager in the food industry sector, but recently made the decision to set up on his own. The Company’s first major contract is with leading European dairy processor, Glanbia Plc, and in particular the ‘Ingredients’ division of the business. Utilising ten drivers, Wylie Transport is now the main milk collection subcontractor for Glanbia for all of Fermanagh and South Tyrone.
Since the first truck went on the road in July, Dennison Rentals has supplied a further six vehicles, including five new and two second-hand tractor units, a mix of Globetrotter and sleeper cabs. All vehicles have been supplied in Glanbia livery and are on 36-month rental, with full R&M.
Phillip Wylie commented, “The milk industry is a seven day-a-week business, so we need an equipment supplier that can support us 24/7. I have been very impressed with the quality of the back-up service that Dennison Commercials has provided”. Due to the geographical area covered on the Glanbia contract, maintenance has primarily been carried out at Dennison’s in Dungannon, but other Dennison’s Dealerpoints have also contributed at times.
