LDV Grows UK Dealership As HRVS Joins The Family

Following the relaunch of LDV to the UK market in 2016, LDV UK & Ireland has announced HRVS Group as the latest LDV dealership in the UK.

With four HRVS branches now selling LDV vehicles and another three outlets coming on board later this year, this brings to almost 25 the number of LDV dealers in the UK (excluding Republic of Ireland) with further announcements expected over the coming months.

HRVS Group is one of the largest and most respected automotive dealers in the central and north eastern belt of England, catering for the commercial needs of businesses of all sizes.

“Since the formal relaunch at the Commercial Vehicle show last year, we’ve seen huge interest in LDV and it is considered something of an iconic brand for the 21st century amongst drivers and dealerships alike,” said Mark Barrett, General Manager, LDV UK & Ireland.

“Geographical spread is critical to the development of a strong and successful dealership base and with HRVS onboard, we are bringing LDV a step closer to drivers and fleet buyers in Ripley, Sheffield, Stoke-on-Trent and Sleaford.  As an award-winning dealership, we’re particularly pleased to have HRVS onboard.  They have a really impressive track record and we know that this will be a hugely successful partnership and good news for van drivers in all of HRVS’ catchment areas.”

Added Keith Sims, Group Operations Director, HRVS: “A good business listens to its customers and we’ve had so many enquiries about LDV that we simply couldn’t ignore them. We’ve had our eye on LDV since it came back on the market, so it’s great to finally be part of the LDV network.

“When it comes to commercial vans our customers look for value, reliability, an outstanding spec, generous payload capacity and a fantastic warranty. LDV ticks all the boxes and some.  It’s the van that gives more and that really appealed to us. It’s the reason why we wanted LDV in the HRVS stable and we anticipate a huge demand for LDV vehicles this year.”

The LDV brand is available right across the UK from dealerships located in areas including Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Midlands region, greater London area, the South East and the North East.

LDV, manufactured by SAIC, the largest automotive company in China and distributed by the Harris Group, is returning to the forthcoming 2017 Commercial Vehicle Show to unveil its latest Electric Vehicle.
