Ballyclare-based Volvo truck & bus dealer, Dennison Commercials, recently held a special event to showcase the brand new Euro VI Volvo truck range.
Transport operators from all over the country attended the busy event held at Dennisons headquarters on the Hillhead Road.
The new model FM, FMX, FL and FE vehicles were presented, along with 460hp and 500hp FH models. Those that attended were offered the opportunity to view, experience and test drive any model of their choice.
John Jenkins, Managing Director of Dennison Commercials explained: “We are extremely proud of our association with the Volvo brand and it is an exciting time for us launching the new Euro VI line-up. We have sought to host our own dealer-driven event for some time now and saw this as the perfect opportunity to do so. We would like to extend our thanks to all those that took the time to attend, and for their continued support of the Volvo / Dennison business.”
Meanwhile, over the last few years Dennisons has built links with local schools in the Ballyclare area, under an ‘Adopt-a-School initiative. The company offers careers advice and mentoring with mutually beneficial objectives of preparing Year 12, 13 and 14 students for the world of work and promoting the Volvo network and Dennisons dealerpoint as a future prospective employer in the local area.
Senior Business Studies pupils from Ballyclare High School were invited to attend the Ride & Drive event to give them further insight into the business and to enhance the community partnership.
