Fleet service provider Greenhous has acquired Heatons Truck Group, adding four more DAF locations to its business.
This latest acquisition sees Greenhous Group increase its portfolio of DAF locations to 19, and follows the acquisition of Adams Morey in 2019 and Kingdon Wessex in 2021.
The family-owned firm now has locations across the South West, South Coast, the West Midlands and now the North West, making it one of the largest DAF dealer groups in the UK.

Founded in 1899, Heatons Truck Group is a fifth generation family-run business with four sites in the North West of England: North West Trucks, a leading DAF franchise operating out of Northwich and Huyton; North West Truck & Trailer Parts, an all-makes commercial parts operation at Ellesmere Port; and Woodwards Truck and Van Centre in Wigan, which holds the parts and service franchises for both Renault and DAF Trucks.
The four sites will remain trading under the North West Trucks name and will be overseen by Kevin Swinnerton, managing director of Adams Morey.
Derek Passant, CEO of the Greenhous Group, said: “We’re delighted to welcome these four new sites into the Greenhous Group. For over 120 years the Heatons family have built a fantastic reputation and loyal customer-base in the region. It’s been a pleasure working with them on this deal and we’re looking forward to further prosperity in the North West.”
