Greenhous Group, one of the UK’s largest DAF dealer groups, has acquired the property and assets of Shrewsbury based commercial vehicle bodybuilder, Bulkrite Limited. The acquisition, effective May 2nd 2023, will bolster Greenhous Group's presence in the commercial vehicle market, and further enhance the company's position as a major supplier to the transportation industry.

The acquisition represents a diversification and expansion of the Greenhous Group, which currently has 22 DAF locations throughout the UK.
Greenhous Group Truck Division Managing Director, Kevin Swinnerton, explained: “"We are thrilled to welcome Bulkrite to the Greenhous Group family. Thanks to Andrew and Melanie Davies, their son Robert, and their team, Bulkrite has a fantastic reputation for designing and building high-quality commercial vehicle bodies and we are delighted to add the talent and expertise of Bulkrite into the group.”
Andrew Davies will remain as Bulkrite General Manager, continuing to run day-to-day operations as the business transitions into the Greenhous Group.
Swinnerton concluded, “This a really exciting addition to the Greenhous portfolio. The acquisition will enable us to expand our product offer and have greater control of our supply chain when it comes to offering our customers bodied DAF vehicles – all part of our continued commitment to providing the very highest levels of product and service to our customers.”
