Isuzu Truck and Multipart extend parts deal

Parts, and the supply and fitting of the same said parts, form the bedrock for many a dealer, so Laurie Dealer is pleased to pass news that Isuzu Truck UK has extended its deal with Multipart.

Parts maker Multipart will provide parts and support to the truck builders' 50-strong dealer network. Bob Haughton, operations director and deputy-MD of Isuzu Truck UK, says the contract to provide parts for all Isuzu Truck vehicles up to 18 tonnes.

Multipart holds more than 9,500 active part numbers for Isuzu Truck-products and Multipart holds a total range of 36,000 parts on file.

Orders received before 6.00pm on a weekday are delivered pre-noon the following day throughout the UK, and parts not on the shelf at the dealer or in Chorley can be supplied within 48 hours.

Top stuff, jobs a good un.

New £1m Stormont Truck and Van dealership in north London

Laurie Dealer receives word that Iveco dealer Stormont Truck and Van has opened a new £1m site in Loughton, north London.

The new site replaces the Enfield-based depot run by former Iveco player Iceni Truck and Van, as Stormont assumes responsibility for the area.

This lifts the number of sites run by the Clipper Group-owned Stormont Truck and Van to five, and Bill Sangster, MD at Stormont Truck and Van, says getting the location of the new dealership right was fundamental.

The Loughton site has a 14-bay workshop and is staffed by a 26 strong team, including 10 technicians.

Stormont Truck and Van operates has sites at Brighton, Dunstable, Hildenborough and Northampton, and is a sister company to Northern Commercials, which has Iveco dealerships in Brighouse, Leeds and Manchester.
