BRS has put a Renault Range T460 6x2 demonstrator vehicle with a special livery into service to mark its 70th anniversary.

The company was formed in 1948 as part of the post war nationalisation of industry programme, and by the late 1970s, it was part of the National Freight Company (NFC). In 1981 BRS was the subject of an employee buyout led by then chairman, Sir Peter Thompson.

In 1994, BRS’s Renault business and contract hire portfolio was bought by Volvo Group, and in 2010 an agreement was reached for BRS to provide only Renault Trucks products. Today, BRS operates in close partnership with Renault Trucks and offers contract hire and truck rental services.

Graham Scholes, MD at BRS said: “We are very proud of the role BRS has played in the history of British transport, and we are looking forward to celebrating our 70 years in business with our customers, employees and partners who have put their trust in us.

“As well as taking a trip down memory lane this year, we will be focusing on the future and building on the customer-centric approach and commitment to service excellence that has been at the heart of our long-term success.”
