Diamond Trucks, the Renault Trucks dealer which operates from two sites in Northern Ireland and Warrington, Cheshire, has announced its acquisition of Border Trucks, Carlisle, the Renault Trucks sales and service dealership for the area bordering Scotland and England.

Part of the Setanta Group, Dublin, Diamond Trucks has built a longstanding reputation for service excellence in Mallusk, Belfast, extending its presence across the water with the opening of Diamond Trucks Warrington in 2022. Under the group structure, Border Trucks will continue to operate as an independent business, with Stephen Whitehead remaining with the business as Director and Dealer Principal. 

Commenting on the announcement, Harry Nash, Director, Diamond Trucks, says: “We continue to see significant value in the Renault Trucks brand and product range, which is gaining market share and confidence across the industry. Border Trucks bring a wealth of experience especially in the construction sector having strong partnerships with many of the key suppliers in this area, and we look forward to working with Stephen and the team to further develop the Renault Trucks brand in the Border region.”
