T Maxwell & Sons Ltd. rolls back the years with DAF
- New DAF XF 510 FTP is first Euro-6 in fleet
- Original company livery includes specially commissioned artwork
- Three further 510s on order for delivery in January, 2016
- New 510bhp tractor is joined by two CF 330 FAS Space Cab 6x2 rigids
T.Maxwell & Sons Ltd. in Crumlin, Northern Ireland, has marked its 40thanniversary with a new Euro-6 DAF XF 510 FTP Super Space Cab – the first Euro-6 model in the fleet. Adorned in the company’s original 1970s livery, a further three identical-spec XFs are on order and due for delivery in January, 2016.
The latest 510bhp flagship unit is joined by two CF 330 FAS Space Cab 6x2 rigids. All the company’s DAF vehicles are supplied by local DAF dealer, TBF Thompson, with whom a strong bond has existed for almost 20 years.
“It’s all about the service support,” said company director, Tommy Maxwell, “and DAF has given us first-class care from day one. Back in September 1975, DAF was the only manufacturer to give my father finance on his first truck.” he said.
40 years on and the general haulage and groupage specialist has acknowledged the milestone with a specially commissioned paint-job in the company’s original livery.
“We wanted something special to commemorate our 40thbirthday,” said company director Terry Maxwell, “and we’re chuffed with the brilliant artwork. The truck is superb, but it’s the dealer support that’s the crucial part.
“Today,” he added, “TBF Thompson has enhanced the relationship. We receive great service from across the DAF network in the UK, but I view TBF Thompson as a real partner in our business locally. It’s the personable approach that makes everything so much easier – the Staff on the parts and service desks, the DAF Technicians, we’re known to everyone – and it all makes for a great rapport.”
T.Maxwell & Sons Ltd. provides storage, warehousing and distribution services from its 14-acre site in Crumlin. A purpose-built, state-of-the-art, 9,000 sq.ft. workshop facility allows Maxwell to perform maintenance duties for its own fleet and for other local hauliers, too.
