Bruno Blin, president of Renault Trucks, said the new £3.5m RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) centre in Nottingham will be important in “helping our customers to reach success in their business”.
Blin’s statement came after recently visiting the branch with Carlos Rodrigues, MD of Renault Trucks UK and Ireland, following it becoming fully operational in June.
“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,” added Rodrigues after the visit, stating the new site “will be pivotal in helping RHCV support both current and new customers.”
Located 3 miles from Junction 26 of the M1, the site was developed over 12 months as part of RHCV’s strategy to boost accessibility and to enhance the group’s presence along the motorway. It operates alongside branches in Northampton, Alfreton and Leicester.
Nigel Baxter, MD of RHCV, led the tour of the premises alongside commercial director Paul Pearson. As well as talking to team members, they also met customers Justin and Ashley Sherwood, directors of Sherwood Group, and John Matthews, MD of Allegro Transport.
Baxter 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 our operation over the last few years.”
