East Midlands Renault Truck dealer, RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV), recently welcomed VIP guests – Carlos Rodrigues, Managing Director of Renault Trucks UK and Ireland and Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks – for a tour of its new £3.5m site in Nottingham.
This was the first time that Bruno, who was visiting from Renault Trucks’ headquarters in France, had visited any of the RHCV’s four East Midlands sites.
RHCV’s Managing Director, Nigel Baxter and Commercial Director, Paul Pearson led the tour of the site. The duo met various members of RHCV’s team plus customers – Justin & Ashley Sherwood, Directors of Fred Sherwood Group, and John Matthews, Managing Director of Allegro Transport.
Located just three miles from Junction 26 of the M1, the new site was developed over 12-months as part of RHCV’s strategy to boost accessibility and enhance the dealership’s presence along the M1 corridor. This new facility joins the dealership’s existing sites in Northampton, Leicester and Alfreton.
Nigel Baxter, Managing Director of RH Commercial Vehicles, said: “It was a real privilege to welcome Carlos, Bruno and some of our customers to the new site. Not only did they get to view the new and enhanced facilities, such as a new workshop, a brand-new ATF lane, paint booth and tacho-rolling bay, but they got to meet and chat with our hard-working employees who have been instrumental in the success of the operation over the last few years.”
Carlos Rodrigues, Managing Director of Renault Trucks UK, said: “RHCV’s site opening marks a successful year for the team and it was great to see RHCV’s new site and the significant investment they have made. The new facility will be pivotal in helping RHCV support both current and new customers in the best possible way.”
Bruno Blin, President of Renault Trucks added: “At Renault Trucks, it is always important that we strive to help our customers in any way we can, to ensure they reach success in their business and RHCV’s new site will be important in helping us to achieve that.”Established more than 40 years ago and with 118 employees across its four sites, RHCV has doubled in size over the last six years.
It is an authorised distributor for Renault Trucks and provides new and used sales, service and parts for the full Renault Trucks range as well as all-makes parts and servicing for commercial vehicles. The business also provides a range of rental/lease options through sister company, RH Rentals.
