As part of its purchase of HRVS Group, MAN Truck & Bus UK has acquired five dealerships across central England. As MAN franchised agents, HVRS has previously supported the manufacturer’s customers with sales and service for over 17 years.
The dealerships are part of a £20m commitment from MAN into its UK branch network and are located in Ripley, Stoke-on-Trent, Sheffield, Scunthorpe and Sleaford. The deal also includes a workshop in Burton upon Trent.
MAN Truck & Bus UK CEO, Thomas Hemmerich, said, “The acquisition will undoubtedly strengthen our wholly-owned brand network which, following the HRVS purchase, now numbers 24 vehicle service and sales locations. We’re very excited to be adding these five new locations and pleased to be welcoming new and highly experienced colleagues to the MAN family.
“We’re keen to integrate HRVS into the MAN Truck & Bus UK team as soon as possible, starting with the transfer of the HRVS employees.”
Hemmerich added that HRVS would continue to operate as usual.
