Greenhous acquires Bulkrite assets

DAF dealer Greenhous Group has acquired the property and assets of Shrewsbury-based bodybuilder Bulkrite to further enhance its presence in the commercial vehicle market.

Operating for more than 40-years, Bulkrite is a specialist in the design and manufacture of a range of commercial vehicle bodies large and small, from 45' livestock containers on tri-axle trailers down to dropside bodies on 1.5 tonne vehicles. The acquisition represents a diversification and expansion of the Greenhous Group, which currently has 22 DAF locations throughout the UK.

Greenhous Group truck division managing director Kevin Swinnerton, said: “The acquisition will enable us to expand our product offer and have greater control of our supply chain when it comes to offering our customers bodied DAF vehicles – all part of our continued commitment to providing the very highest levels of product and service to our customers.”

Andrew Davies will remain as Bulkrite general manager, continuing to run daily operations as the business transitions into the Greenhous Group.
