As part of a recent nine vehicle order placed with MC Truck & Bus in Maidstone, Steward Transport has taken delivery of a special 540bhp Volvo FH tractor unit, with dual clutch and polished alloy wheels, and featuring a striking gold livery to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.
Based in Paddock Wood, Kent, Steward Transport is a long-standing customer of MC Truck & Bus having bought trucks from them since they first opened their doors. Their relationship with Volvo Trucks goes back even further as it began way back in 1979. The company now runs a 45 strong all-Volvo fleet consisting of tractor units, drawbar rigids and 8-wheel rigids.
In addition to the special gold Volvo tractor unit, as part of this order MC Truck & Bus has also supplied five 500bhp Volvo FH 6x2 44 tonne drawbar trucks, with the I-shift gearbox and polished alloy wheels as standard, and each truck has been fitted with a brick carrying body and rear mounted crane. The nine-vehicle order has been completed with addition of three 420bhp, 32 tonne Volvo FM 8 wheelers, specified with I-shift gearboxes, full air suspension, polished alloy wheels and front and rear nearside lower door windows. Once again, these three Volvo 8 wheelers have been fitted with specialist brick carrying bodies.

“Volvo manufacture the best trucks in the market in our opinion and they have now become our single source vehicle. At the same time, the relationship we have built up with Volvo dealer MC Truck & Bus is first class. Apart from the close proximity of their dealership to our premises, the overall service we have received from them is very good indeed. The sales staff are very knowledgeable and helpful at all times, whilst we enjoy an excellent after sales service that includes a daily parts delivery,” said John Steward, Director, Steward Transport.
Steward Transport is one of the U.K.’s leading brick and block haulage companies offering nationwide transportation of large quantities of building materials on behalf of major building and construction companies. The company plans to keep its new Volvos for a minimum period of 10 years.
“The strength of the relationship between Steward Transport and MC Truck & Bus is excellent. We work very closely together in partnership and both companies have grown successfully in tandem. It’s a pleasure to have been chosen as the supplier of the latest 9-vehicle order for Stewards and delivering more high specification Volvos for them during their 50th anniversary year,” said Dave Hutchins, Sales Director, MC Group Ltd.
