Bredenoord and MAN Rollo have been doing business together for some 30 years
Bredenoord has been providing tailor-made power for virtually any situation for some 75 years. The company’s strength lies in both hiring out and selling aggregates and related articles. These temporary, permanent or mobile energy and emergency power facilities are deployed in a variety of fields, such as for events, construction work, agriculture, industry, the ICT sector, care institutions, infrastructure concerns and utilities, and government premises.
‘MAN Rollo has actually been one of the suppliers of engines for our applications for some 30 years now,’ notes Harry Keurhorst, Technical Manager at Bredenoord. ‘We mainly use diesel engines in the mobile aggregates for our rental division. The rental fleet falls within my portfolio, specifically the technical matters concerning the main components for all new investments. I put together a technical dossier, as it were.
At Bredenoord we believe it’s important to know who we are doing business with, so it’s not only the technical specifications of a component we discuss before issuing the order. Are the company’s after-sales good? Can they fulfil our specific wishes so that our rental aggregates can be deployed multifunctionally?
MAN Rollo is just such a company. Client-orientated – they understand our wishes and work with us. Bredenoord and MAN Rollo are both firms with a hands-on mentality.
MAN Rollo is in fact dependent on MAN, which sometimes makes it difficult for them to fulfil our wishes directly. For example, we wanted a couple of modifications to the D2862 engine, and MAN in Germany actually had to carry this out. This took a while, and MAN Rollo did its absolute best to arrange it.
We opt for MAN because we are highly satisfied with the quality of the engine. The engines in our rental fleet must certainly be able to run faultlessly for 10 years, without too many problems. MAN engines meet this demand. Our aggregates can be found in several European countries. Our own team of technicians carries out the maintenance and repairs. MAN Rollo supplies the required parts.
‘When a new engine comes onto the market, there’s always a dialogue between us, MAN Germany and MAN Rollo before and during installation and putting it into service. The engine is tested extensively and is then installed in accordance with all manner of checks and protocols. Is the engine being used properly, in the way it was intended? Once this process has been completed, the type is approved. The next engines are then ordered as repeat orders. Should there be any issues later, these are resolved by MAN Rollo quickly and correctly. We understand each other, and I’m impressed by MAN Rollo. So it’s hardly surprising that we have done business together for such a long time.’
