Customised promotional model vehicle specialists, Search Impex, are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a 1:50 scale Renault T 520 High (6x2) tractor unit and 3 axle, refrigerated trailer (Thermo King), customised in the highly attractive and now well-known livery of Northern Ireland based operator, McConaghy Refrigerated Distribution.
This is the fourth model to be produced by Search Impex for McConaghy and it will certainly sit well alongside the earlier releases (all now sold out) of the three different Scania Topline models with refrigerated trailers.
The models will again be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition.
The Renault T High is one of a pair recently to enter service with McConaghy’s fleet and as is only be expected, the two units have again been beautifully liveried in the Company’s striking yellow, flame red & white colour scheme.
Based in Derrykeighan, near Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, McConaghy Refrigerated Distribution was founded in 1997, by Richard McConaghy, with the purchase of his first vehicle - a Volvo FL6-12 rigid fridge truck. Using this truck, McConaghy undertook local refrigerated distribution work throughout Northern Ireland. Since the early start up days, the business has grown steadily and has progressed into UK and all Ireland distribution. In 2013, the business entered second generation territory when Richard’s son, Gavin, joined the Company and he now drives throughout the UK & Ireland. Further second generation involvement came again in 2016 when Richard’s daughter, Lauren, also joined the business working on the operational side and undertaking, amongst other things, traffic desk duties and compliance administration.
An increasing workload has required more trucks and the Company has continued to invest in its fleet. The present day fleet of 22 trucks is a mix of Scania, Volvo and more recently Renault and McConaghy Refrigerated Distribution trucks can be seen delivering throughout Ireland and also on the UK mainland making deliveries to and collections from RDC’s for distribution direct to stores in Ireland
