Renault Trucks buys out Glasgow dealer Border Trucks17 October 2017

Renault Trucks has strengthened its presence in Scotland with the acquisition of the Border Trucks dealership at Bellshill, near Glasgow.

From 2 October, the dealership began operating under the name ‘Renault Trucks Scotland’. The staff at Bellshill will transfer across from the Border Trucks business, including the existing management team.

Additionally, Renault Trucks has appointed Peter Murray as dealer principal; he has 13 years’ experience at Renault Trucks. On joining the Renault Trucks Scotland team, Murray, who resides in the Glasgow area, said: “This is an exciting time for Renault Trucks in Scotland; we’re enjoying strong sales, with the robust and efficient product range transforming perceptions of the brand, now enhanced by the addition of the flagship right hand drive Range T High model to the UK market.”

Commenting on both the acquisition of Border Trucks and Murray’s appointment, Arne Knaben, managing director, Volvo Group Trucks – UK & Ireland, said: “Scotland is a key region for Renault Trucks, and with its unique set of challenges – geography, climate and road infrastructure – that are faced by hard-working operators, it is very important for us to have a customer-focused dealer principal in the driving seat at our Glasgow site.” Peter brings with him unrivalled knowledge of the range and extensive management experience to the role. He is well known and respected by everyone at Renault Trucks and throughout our dealer network, and will deliver an even higher level of customer service to all Renault truck operators in Scotland.”
