Acorn Truck Sales has become the new Iveco Truck and Van franchise dealer for Essex, the South-east and east London areas.
The dealership, who’s head office is at Crayford in Kent, will offer sales, service and parts.
Darren Brown, sales dealer principal, said: "It’s not every day you get to take on the franchise for a manufacturer that has just won International Truck of the Year 2013, and has such a strong line-up of products on offer.
“We have a superb facility in Crayford, and given our close proximity to the centre of London, we see great potential in particular for Iveco’s natural gas range of light, medium and heavy trucks, not to mention its hybrid drivelines,” he added.
Supporting the Crayford site will be a LCV sales, service and parts dealership in West Thurrock, Essex, as well as two authorised repairers at sister company PCL Eastern in Witham, and at Dagenham Motors in Barking.
Acorn, who also run a Hino franchise, and PCL are part of The Harris Group, which includes Daf Trucks dealer Harris Daf, and petroleum transport company Suckling Transport.
