New jobs up for grabs as Nottingham truck dealer expands and builds new site

New jobs have been created as a Nottingham-based truck dealer is expanding its business and opening a new site. Renault Trucks dealer RH Commercial Vehicles, RHCV, founded in 1977, has four existing sites across the East Midlands. Over the past three years, it has expanded into Northamptonshire with a new site, opened a brand new GBP3.5m facility on Daybell Avenue, Belnheim Industrial Estate in Bulwell, Nottingham and invested GBP70,000 in its Leicester site.

The new 20,000 ft site is located on the A1, at Tuxford, near Newark and will be operational in late April. It is an existing facility and includes an 8,000 sq ft workshop with three high bays. Nigel Baxter, managing director at RHCV said: “Despite the continuing challenges on our health, our health services and the economy, we’re delighted to share this good news.

“The opening of this new site will allow us to better service our existing customer base in the Newark area, as well as enabling us to extend our support north towards Ollerton, Retford and Worksop. “These are parts of North Nottinghamshire where we have been unhappy with our coverage in the past, this new facility will allow us to give a first-class service to existing Renault Trucks operators, and of course open up opportunities for new business in this area.

“We have been looking for an appropriate site in this area for the past few years. Now that we have a suitable location, we now have fantastic network coverage, strategically located along the M1 corridor, with Cossington also covering the A46 trunk road close to Leicester, and now this new site covering the A1, and of course also the A46.”

Eight new roles will be created initially, with “many more” over time. RHCV is already recruiting for all its existing locations to fill newly created vacancies. Nigel added: “As I have stated on a number of occasions, we see a very bright future for the UK economy despite the impact of the third lockdown, but with the rollout of the vaccine programme we feel very positive about British manufacturing, construction and wider business investment.

Alongside the continued evolvement of the Renault Trucks brand and product range we are certain that we will continue to grow our market share.”

Carlos Rodrigues, managing director, Renault Trucks UK & Ireland, said: “As a high performing dealer, RHCV’s trademark professionalism and exceptional customer focus will ensure the success of its fifth site, driving brand awareness, growth and accessibility to further strengthen Renault Trucks’ network coverage across North Nottinghamshire.”

RHCV has been selling, leasing, servicing and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for four decades and employs 140 staff.
