Renault Truck Commercials opens first parts recycling centre

Renault Truck Commercials has opened the network’s first dedicated parts recycling centre.

Located at the group’s Renault Trucks South dealership in Reading, UK, the new recycling centre is a fully Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) specialising in Renault Trucks Genuine second life parts.

The facility, which will carefully select end-of-life Renault trucks to meet sales demand, is perfectly positioned to meet the growing demand for high quality, competitively priced recycled genuine parts.

Con Rooney, managing director, Renault Truck Commercials, says: “We are proud to open the doors of the first fully authorised genuine parts recycling centre in the Renault Trucks network.

“As all sectors of the market and supply chain have been affected by the challenges of the global pandemic, this investment is further evidence of our long-term commitment to supporting customers with more affordable, quality options that are a commercial and environmental ‘win-win’.”

Steve Astill, group parts manager at Renault Truck Commercials.

For Steve Astill, group parts manager at Renault Truck Commercials, the assurance that every vehicle is certified through the manufacturer’s fleet file for total transparency is key.

“We know the service history of every part on every Renault truck that comes through the facility, which gives customers real peace of mind,” says Astill.

“Additionally, all major recycled components come with a warranty. Our qualified technicians work to exacting manufacture standards to remove the parts, which are cleaned, prepared and stored ready for sale.”

The new facility is designed to ensure the highest standards in health and safety, and to the environment.

Astill adds: “We try to sell as much as possible from the vehicles we process, however anything we can’t sell is disposed of through our waste conscious streams, correctly recycled right down to the copper from our wiring looms.”
