2017-07 Mercedes-Benz Trucks Celebrating 50 Years in Ireland

Computer transport and logistics specialists ATC has taken delivery of two new Mercedes-Benz Actros units, supplied by MUTEC through their new Long Mile Road Sales Centre.

This increases to three the number of Actros units on the ATC fleet – having been operating an 1851LS 4x2 2.5m Actros BigSpace since early 2016.

First of the latest new units is an Actros 2533 6x2 2.3m StreamSpace rigid fitted with a temperature controlled body engineered by Lifford Coachworks complete with side marker/indicators.

The second unit is an Actros 1845LS 4x3 2.5m BigSpace tractor unit, fitted with ambient lighting, auxiliary hot water heater, leather steering wheel and Predictive Powertrain control which will tow one of ATC’s coupled trailers, all of which feature 5 indicators on each side for added visibility and load space cameras.

Painted in metallic black with the distinctive ‘three pointed star’ motif reproduced on the driver’s cab, both units are equipped with the latest Mercedes-Benz safety equipment including Stability Control Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Attention Assist and Active Brake Assist. Additional safety comes via forward, reverse and side facing cameras which offer better visibility of vulnerable road users.

Commenting, MUTEC Dealer Principal, John Connolly, said: "as well as providing the functional support that ATC requires, these new units have a distinctly up-market appearance projecting a modern image in line with the expectations of customers in the high-tech sector.”
