Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Driveline GB are a cut above the rest for M&W Meats

The first vehicles to wear the smart new livery of M&W Meats are also its first by Mercedes-Benz. One thing the Cornish wholesale butcher has not changed, though, is its acquisition method – the four Sprinters are the subject of a contract hire agreement with trusted supplier Driveline GB Ltd.

M&W Meats, which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary, moved recently to a new production facility in St Stephen. Established by Dean Myatt and his son, also Dean, the company supplies a range of premium meat products, predominantly prime beef, to retail butchers and other customers throughout Cornwall and Devon.

Driveline GB acquired the new-generation Sprinters on behalf of its valued customer, from the Mercedes-Benz Van Centre Exeter. All 314 CDI H2 L3 models with high roofs and long bodies, they were insulated and fitted with GAH refrigeration units by conversion specialist GRP Group.
