F&G Commercials, a DAF dealership group located in the north of England, has renamed the business as Motus Commercials following its purchase of the F&G Commercials business earlier in the year.
Motus Commercials is the largest DAF dealer group across the UK and Europe, also operating a network of Ford, VW, Isuzu, Fiat and LDV van and light commercials sites.
Currently, it has 29 Motus-operated DAF sites in the UK.
Matthew Lawrenson, managing director at Motus Commercials, said: “We would sincerely like to stress to customers that the F&G Commercials business will stay the same.
“We’re 100% focused on supporting past, present and future customers with new and used vehicle sales, as well as comprehensive service and parts back-up.
“We have been working closely with F&G over recent months to build on the solid support levels they already provided to customers and suppliers, and overlay those with our own group strengths and expertise too.
“We are confident that our new team in the north will thrive under their new brand with the support of the entire Motus Commercials network.”
The business was founded 24 years ago, and its four full-service DAF dealerships are located at Manchester, Barnsley, Huddersfield and Oldham, and will now trade under the Motus Commercials name.
Its Barnsley bodyshop and accident repair centre is now called the Motus Accident Repair Centre, and the body-building operation has been renamed Motus Vehicle Solutions, which will operate alongside Motus Commercials.
The three-acre facility replaces the group’s Mercia Road Daf site, which is located on Spinnaker Road, 1.5 miles from the company’s previous location.
