Rotherham recycling business invests in ‘green’ fleet

The Ron Hull Group has purchased a fleet of seven energy-efficient cars from JCT600 Volkswagen.

The group offers a range of services from waste management and recycling to demolition and dismantling. 

Established in 1976, the successful group now employs over 190 staff and in recent years has pursued a policy of reducing its carbon footprint by employing environmentally-friendly principles.

As part of this ongoing campaign, Ron Hull has now replaced seven of its vehicle fleet with Volkswagen Golf models incorporating BlueMotion fuel efficient technology.

“We were keen to buy locally, and it was crucial that our fleet demonstrate our green credentials,” said Paul Furniss, group purchasing manager for the Ron Hull Group. 

“The move to greener vehicles marks another key milestone in the Ron Hull Group’s quest to be as energy efficient as possible.”

Paul Hague, head of business for JCT600’s Rotherham Volkswagen dealership, added: “It’s great to work with such a well-known Rotherham business and to be able to support its green initiatives through Volkswagen’s innovative technology.”
