International value in the transportation industry
Iveco is an Italian industrial vehicle manufacturing company controlled by CNH Industrial Group. In 1975 Magi rus-Deutz, Fiat, Lancia, Unic and OM merged and Iveco came into existence. With more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing heavy motor vehicles (>3.5 ton), the company built up international recognition and won several prizes such as ‘International Truck of the year’-awards and ‘International Van of the Year 2015’. Iveco became an important player on the transportation market with wholesalers in every major industrialised economy
One of those wholesalers is Belgium based Iveco-Maenhout, which offers a wide range of activities with specific solutions for sales and after sales, service and maintenance. Iveco-Maenhout took over Eagle Truck Center in July 2012 and covers West and East Flanders with establishments in Roeselare, Deinze, and Bruges. The recently built workshop in Bruges functions as headquarters of the three establishments. During the construction works of the new workshop, Iveco-Maenhout was looking for heavy and reliable lubrication equipment offering a long warranty period of at least five years.
