TRP Parts Ireland, the all-makes commercial vehicle parts brand of DAF Trucks, has opened a new facility at Hebron Industrial estate in Kilkenny, re-locating its existing business from the town of Bennettsbridge to the heart of the local motor industry in Kilkenny.
The newly-constructed TRP Commercial Vehicle Parts operation comprises some 2,500 sq.ft of retail and warehouse space and will serve customers across the South-East region through a same-day parts delivery service.
Launched in 1994, TRP Parts is a brand of the PACCAR Group dedicated to supplying top quality parts to all makes of truck, trailer, van and bus. With an offering of over 85,000 parts lines, TRP can provide existing and potential customers with a readily accessible competitively priced parts range, helping to keep their vehicle downtime to a minimum. Building on this proven all-makes reputation, TRP opened its first Irish store over 10 years ago and the Kilkenny location is one of a national network of TRP Stores, which offers this unique combined all-makes parts solution.
Located in 22A Hebron Industrial Estate, TRP Kilkenny is now open and is fully stocked carrying a wide range of spare parts and accessories for all makes of light and heavy commercial vehicles including bus and trailer spare parts.
TRP Parts Ireland is part of DAF Trucks Ireland and as such, the location also offers a complete OEM parts offer to DAF Trucks customers. The new operation continues to be managed by Davy Foley, supported by Mark Raggett and Noel Whelan in Sales and Sarah Walsh in Administration.
DAF Trucks Ireland Aftersales Director, Arthur O’Sullivan commented: “We’re delighted to continue our expansion and investment programme for DAF & TRP in Ireland. This TRP store is part of our network of nine locations combining to deliver TRP parts to every corner of Ireland. With this new facility we look forward to providing a more comprehensive range of commercial vehicle parts to existing and new customers in Kilkenny, Carlow, Laois, Wexford, Waterford and South Tipperary.”
