Diamond Trucks, a Renault Trucks dealer for Northern Ireland, has announced that it is expanding its operation into England, establishing a new approved Renault Trucks dealer in Howley Lane, Warrington, Cheshire.
Operating as Diamond Trucks UK, the 4.5 acre site on Howley Trade Park is located in one of England’s prime industrial, logistics and distribution hubs, around 4.5km from Junction 9 of the M62 motorway, with access to the M56 and M6 and onward routes across the UK and to Ireland.
Construction is now underway to remodel and refurbish the existing 45,000 sq ft building to Renault Trucks’ exacting dealer standards, creating first class office and workshop areas for staff, and comfortable, well-equipped facilities for new, used and aftersales customers as well as waiting drivers. Trading is expected to commence this August.
Diamond Trucks says its expansion into England follows seven years of continued growth in Northern Ireland, where the dealership has seen Renault Trucks’ market share increase from two to 10 per cent. With growing freight traffic through ports in Northern Ireland, the new Warrington dealership is ideally placed to support operators coming into Liverpool, Holyhead and Heysham.
Harry Nash, director, Diamond Trucks, said: “Since 2015, Diamond Trucks Northern Ireland has gone from strength to strength, building a reputation for outstanding service support. The acquisition of our new site in Warrington is a good strategic fit for us, extending our influence to support Renault Trucks operators on both sides of the water, and opening up opportunities for new business in the area.
“We continue to see great value in the Renault Trucks brand and its product range that is growing in both market share and confidence, and look forward to welcoming customers to Diamond Trucks UK in the coming months.”
Derek Leech, service market & retail development director at Renault Trucks UK, added: “The new Diamond Trucks UK site further strengthens the Renault Trucks dealer network in the UK, and will enable us to better support customers and grow our presence in the key North West region.
“Winner of Renault Trucks’ Dealer of the Year in 2020, the team at Diamond Trucks has a proven track record in delivering for customers and the Renault Trucks brand. We know that Harry and the leadership team at Diamond Trucks bring the experience, expertise and vision to drive even more success here in Warrington.”
