IGGESUND Forestry, part of the Swedish Forestry Group, Holmen, has added five new Nissan Navara AT-32s to its fleet, supplied by family owned and run Midlothian Nissan dealership, Alex F Noble & Son.
Iggesund, based at Workington in Cumbria, is the leading manufacturer of high end packaging in the shape of its renowned ‘Incada’ folding box board made from home grown spruce from the forests of Scotland and Northern England.
Gavin Davidson, Head of Forest Operations at Iggesund Forestry, said: “We have run a fleet of Navara Technas for a number of years which we have found to be great all-round vehicles. However, the AT32 is even better and a much more robust vehicle, so we’ve brought five into the fleet to add to the two Technas. The new vehicles will be working throughout our forest operational area covering Scotland and Northern England.
“The AT32 is simply a tremendous truck with increased ground clearance and a guarded underside which will help off-road.The new vehicles will be working in the company’s forestry division where their capabilities will be tested to the max!”
Gavin was also keen to compliment the dealership. He said: “Iggesund has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Alex F Noble & Son. They are big enough to cope but small enough to care and have a great personal touch with a fantastic customer led ethos. For example, if we require a replacement vehicle at short notice, they are always happy to assist quickly, allowing myself or my Forest Managers to keep working. They are always extremely helpful and nothing ever seems to be an issue.
“I suppose to sum up, they are an excellent, service-led dealership with a great technical ability which is critical when your vehicle is effectively your mobile office.”
David Noble, Dealer Principal at Alex F Noble & Son Nissan, said: “We’re very proud of our long association with Iggesund Forestry and delighted that Gavin and his team are impressed with the new Navaras. The AT32 is the most capable Navara we’ve ever sold. Its top-class blend of enhanced off-road ability and upgraded exterior features make it the ideal pickup for the work it will be doing with Iggesund in some of the roughest and remotest terrains throughout Scotland and the North of England.”
