Becoming a Cat Compact dealer expands the scope of operations at HRVS. It is the second largest MAN truck dealer in the UK and also sells Isuzu trucks.

HRVS director Keith Sims said: “We see this as a fantastic opportunity for HRVS to increase our profitability and presence in the industry. Not only will the Cat products create synergies by offering our current customers broader solutions, but they also expand our reach into business areas we haven’t previously competed in.”

HRVS has a fleet of 18 service vehicles, 90 technicians and 24 parts staff.

Keith Sims added: “We will be launching our Cat Compact sales facility within the next few weeks at Sheffield, including a new Cat dedicated showroom at our group headquarters in Ripley, Derbyshire.”

John Tierney, Cat Compact dealer manager for Finning UK & Ireland, said: “HRVS has a huge reach across the East Midlands area, a territory we haven’t yet been active in from a Cat Compact perspective. Having placed 400 machines into the UK market last year, we are confident that 2015 should see growth for Finning in the compact market.”
