Ryder strengthens trailer business with purchase of Bullwell Trailer Solutions.


Ryder Europe today announced that it has completed the outright purchase of trailer repair and maintenance specialist Bullwell Trailer Solutions.

Bullwell provides nationwide mobile trailer repair and maintenance services coordinated from its central base in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Bullwell will continue to operate as it does today, and will run alongside Ryder to complement the company’s trailer service offering.

David Hunt, Vice President and Managing Director, Ryder Europe, said: “Ryder is constantly looking at how it can strengthen the business to better serve customers. We presently operate one of the largest trailer rental and contract hire fleets in the UK. The acquisition of Bullwell fits perfectly with our ongoing investment and growth strategy. It will enable us to build on our strong market proposition in trailers, and enhance our nationwide repairs and onsite maintenance services to all of our truck and trailer customers.

Bullwell has a highly skilled team of mobile technicians, a modern fleet of fully equipped service vehicles combined with a strong focus on the use of technology to provide high quality, cost efficient services that maximise uptime for operators. Bullwell’s innovative approach, and its strong commitment to customer service and health and safety, makes the company a very good fit with our own.”

Gary Bulley, Bullwell Managing Director, added: “Bullwell is an innovator in its field with a range of trailer repair and maintenance services designed to keep the customer’s trailers fit for purpose, compliant, and on the road where they need to be. I am very excited about Ryder’s acquisition of Bullwell, where its strong service proposition can be brought to bear with a much larger customer base. This is an excellent opportunity for the business.”
