Renault seals big UAE truck order from ready-mix company

January 5, 2022

Renault Trucks has announced that it has secured a key deal from Sijimix, one of the UAE’s leading ready-mix concrete suppliers, for supply of 10 units of its new K 380 trucks, which will be used to transport concrete across the eastern UAE.

Announcing the brand’s first deal with Sijimix, Renault said it will be delivered by its partner in Dubai, United Diesel. With this move, Sijimix’s existing fleet will surge to over 140 units.

The K 380 P6x4 Rigid Chassis models, which meet Euro 5 emission standards and are equipped with a wide range of technological features as well as 9 CBM transit Concrete Mixers, are set to optimise Sijimix’s local operations thanks to the K range’s functionality and fuel efficiency.

These models have a reputation for robustness, exceptional reliability and optimal fuel efficiency. They are equipped and designed to ensure maximum productivity and safety for their drivers, as the new models meet concrete suppliers’ operational needs.

In addition to its robust build, it also helps cut operational costs by minimising fuel consumption by combining a Euro 5 380hp engine, the Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox with automatic clutch, and a 445-litre tank.

Sijimix’s new K 380 P6x4 trucks, which will mainly be operating from Fujairah, are also driver-centric as they feature numerous advanced technological and safety features.

To minimise risk and increase safety, the trucks are equipped with EBS (Electronic Braking System), Hill Start Aid (HSA), Anti-Spin Regulation (ASR), Wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Emergency Braking Assist, all of which assist drivers in tricky situations and provide comfort.

Sijimix CEO Mahmoud Attourah expressed delight on its partnership with Renault Trucks and United Diesel in the UAE.

'Our deal came through numerous studies we’ve conducted, where Sijimix concluded that Renault Trucks are the best choice in terms of financial cost of operation and quality and reliability of the product, which are ideally suited for our operations across Fujairah,' he stated.

Renault Trucks Middle East Commercial Director Guillaume Zimmermann said: 'Completing this first deal with Sijimix is another great step forward for the Renault Trucks team as we embark on another new partnership with a top local supplier.'

'The quality of our trucks along with their features, technological advancements and efficiency, in addition to United Diesel’s services and strong network, are key factors that contribute to the high demand for Renault Trucks in the UAE,' he noted.

United Diesel General Manager Mike Mokhles Makary pointed out that Renault offers an excellent range of trucks that is perfectly suited to the varied requirements of its customers across the UAE.

'In turn we are focused on ensuring the optimum standards of customer service and financial support. Combined, this forms an unbeatable package, and this new deal with Sijimix demonstrates its appeal to the country’s leading businesses,' he noted.

Makary said the deal between Renault Trucks and Sijimix has been sealed not only because of the quality of the trucks and the reputation of the brand, but also greatly due to United Diesel’s customer support and aftersales services.

Sijimix have been offered site drivers training, technical training for staff and technicians beside other services, reflecting Renault Trucks’ and United Diesel’s objective to ensure optimum peace of mind for its customers, he added.
