Renault Truck Commercials now has eleven sites in the UK, with the group’s total network now comprising over 65 locations, plus other four dealerships in the Irish Republic.
The new site in Coventry spreads over 2.5 acres and features a custom built internal showroom and reception area, a fully equipped 4-bay workshop with two full length inspection pits, a comprehensive parts store and a steam cleaning facility.
The new dealership will be run by Chris Hammond, who will also be running Renault Trucks Midlands at Tipton. Sales and aftermarket activities will also be managed by existing management staff from the Tipton branch.
“The distribution business has become one of the fastest growing sectors in the Coventry and Nuneaton region,” said Hammond, in a statement for the press. “The volume of commercial vehicles running from and through the area has grown significantly in line with this growth, which led to the decision to invest in this area.”
“There is already quite a strong Renault Trucks vehicle parc in the area and, despite the current economic difficulties, we are confident that we will grow our market share in the region across the product range,” he added.
