Isuzu Truck UK has added Northampton-based RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) to its dealer base.

The move follows the recent appointment of two new full dealerships in Scotland and two more in the east of England.

Located near Junction 16 of the M1, RHCV offers a full range of workshop and parts services in addition to new Isuzu truck sales.

Jim McNeil, who has over 30 years’ experience with commercial vehicles and has been with RHCV for the past two years, will take up the new role of Isuzu Truck sales executive at the dealership.

“The addition of the Isuzu truck range will broaden the product offering available from our Northampton branch and complements the existing services available," explained RHCV MD Nigel Baxter.

“We were looking to develop our Northampton dealership and the dialogue with ITUK was completed quickly and efficiently. They were really easy to work with and we see a great synergy between us in terms of operational methods. Shortly, we will be putting new Isuzu demonstrator trucks at different GVWs into the Northampton franchise, which will enable us to develop further new customer opportunities.

"We will, of course, be adding new Isuzus to our own contract hire and rental operation in due course. We see ITUK as a perfect fit for our current business model.”

Added Isuzu Truck UK head of sales Richard Waterworth: “The addition of RHCV to the ever growing ITUK dealer network is an exciting move for us. RHCV, as a company, has consistently set new standards in dealer performance, which has been recognised by them winning various independent dealer awards over the years. They are a very welcome recruit to our dealer expansion programme and will certainly hit the ground running, quickly expanding our market share in the Northampton area.”
