LDV has opened four new UK dealerships in Colchester, Manchester, Perthshire in the Scottish Highlands and Pwllheli in Wales.

They bring the brand’s total number of UK outlets to 31.

The Colchester dealership will be in partnership with Ransome Fleet Solutions, trading as Ransome LDV; the Manchester dealership will be run by Chadderton Motor Company – a subsidiary of Lynton Refrigeration; Webster GM is taking on the Perthshire franchise; and Arwal Parry Motors will run the Pwllheli operation.

Three of the dealers are in the process of building brand new, purpose-built facilities to complement the LDV franchise.

LDV UK and Ireland general manager Mark Barrett said: “Since our relaunch in 2016, we’ve seen growing interest in the LDV brand amongst drivers and dealerships alike.

“We are very happy to be bringing LDV a step closer to drivers and fleet buyers across the UK, including in the more remote areas.

“Each of the four dealers has a really impressive track record and we are very pleased with these partnerships. It is also good news for van drivers in all of their respective catchment areas.

“We extend a warm welcome to all four and look forward to what I’m sure will be a successful future ahead for commercial van sales.”
