Matthews Motors of Augusta recently announced that it has become a distributor of Dennis Eagle Proview refuse collection trucks. This adds to Matthews Motors company’s already extensive product line of truck sales, maintenance and up-fitting, and automated fleet management services.
“We are extremely excited to become part of the Dennis Eagle family,” said Bob Matthews, CEO of Matthews Motors. “Dennis Eagle is the industry leader for quality and durability with some of the most innovative chassis designs in the industry.”
“We’re delighted to have Matthews Motors on board as a distributor of our trucks,” said Geoff Rigg, Interim President of Dennis Eagle Inc. “As a forward-thinking and dynamic company, they are ideally suited to the ProView which is taking operational safety and efficiency to new heights in the refuse collection industry.”
The ProView has been designed for the North American market by Dennis Eagle, which has designed and manufactured waste and recycling trucks since 1907. The ProView is manufactured at Dennis Eagle’s new factory in Summerville, S. C.
“The cab on the Proview line offers excellent visibility, while they have improved the chassis for greater strength and safety,” Aaron Matthews, CFO, said. “A 9L Cummins engine powers it for outstanding performance. We believe this will be a popular vehicle for our customers.”
