TOGETHER: Two Iveco dealerships unite
Iveco dealers Northern Commercials (Mirfield) Ltd and Stormont Truck & Van Ltd – both wholly-owned subsidiaries of Clipper Group Holdings – are amalgamating.
Northern Commercials have acquired the trade and assets of Stormont Truck & Van, with Stormont’s four-dealership network to be re-branded as Northern Commercials sites.
The merger makes Northern Commercials one of the largest Iveco dealers in the UK, as Stormont dealerships in Brighton, Dunstable, Northampton and Tonbridge join their existing Brighouse and Manchester network.
At the same time, Northern Commercials are taking the opportunity to centralise their accounting process, with all customer accounts being managed from their head office and flagship dealer site in Brighouse.
Roger Peel, Group Managing Director of Northern Commercials, said: “Ever since our parent company purchased Stormont Truck & Van five years ago, our businesses have operated closely alongside each other.
“Naturally, it made strategic sense to integrate the two companies and to go to market as a single brand.”
