Speaking to Tachoblog Chris Kelly, Keltruck’s founder & Chairman, said, “We have been sitting on a considerable cash balance for some time whilst looking for an acquisition in our sector. Silurian came along due to retirement of its shareholder and Managing Director, and is a perfect fit for us.

“We intend to bring the services available to truck, bus and coach operators in south Wales in line with those offered by the rest of the Keltruck business.” Mr Kelly also said that Keltruck’s MD and Dealer Principal, Andrew Jamieson, will become Silurian’s MD and Dealer Principal on 1st January 2011.

Mr Jamieson commented to Tachoblog “We are delighted with this acquisition. With our existing scale and range of services we are confident that we can also deliver a number of positives to Silurian Scania and their customers.”
