The new site will be known as Renault Truck Commercials Kent and will provide support for customers across Dover, the M2 and M20 corridor as well as those travelling through the Eurotunnel.
This announcement follows the recent appointments of Renault Truck Commercials service points in Cornwall (Launceston Truck Services), Gloucester (South West Truck and Van), and Hoddeson, Hertfordshire (UK Truckcentre) and is part of Renault Trucks’ ongoing network expansion programme.
Con Rooney, managing director of Renault Truck Commercials, says: “The depot is in close proximity to the M2 roadway corridor leading to the port of Dover, and is a location that is important to the Renault Trucks south eastern region strategy. In acquiring KTS, we have been impressed by their progressive approach to growing our presence, supporting the brand as well as expanding our customer base potential. Renault Truck Commercials will build on the excellent work done over many years by the KTS Team.”
Situated on a two-acre site, the purpose-built facility has 22 employees and is equipped with a ten-bay drive-through workshop, DVSA tacho lane, diagnostic/repairs equipment and provides Renault Trucks’ 24/7 roadside assistance.
For Renault Trucks, the acquisition of KTS Trucks Ltd and KTS Rentals Ltd takes the number of dealers in its UK & Ireland network to 74. Derek Leech, service market & retail development director at Renault Trucks UK, says: “We are focused on strengthening our dealer network in key areas to maximise the potential for the Renault Trucks brand. The addition of KTS to our wholly-owned dealer group demonstrates our commitment to meeting the demands of customers, existing and new across the Kent area.”
