Intertruck goes into administration

  • 17 December 2013
  • By David Wilcox

Truck parts distributor Intertruck has gone into administration after trading independently for less than two years following its sale by former parent company Unipart Commercial Vehicles.

Solihull-based Intertruck has almost 30 branches supplying commercial vehicle parts to truck fleets. It was sold by Unipart because of a perceived conflict of interest between Intertruck and Unipart’s other truck parts business, TTC. TTC is a parts wholesaler supplying factors; the factors felt that Intertruck was in competition with them by supplying fleet operators direct.

Unipart sold Intertruck in 2012 to a private company led by Graham Roberts, who became managing director. Roberts is a finance man who specialises in company turnarounds and restructuring. He also knows the automotive parts business, having served as managing director of the former AEW (Autella/Edmunds Walker) chain of motor parts factors.

In October Intertruck announced that it had recruited 20 new sales staff and invested around £1m in its sales infrastructure during the past year. It had just signed a three-year, £2m deal to supply parts to the 1,200-strong fleet of Riverside Truck Rental.

Last week SDC Trailers pulled out of its planned deal to off-load its parts and service business FPS to Intertruck.
