Keltruck is celebrating four decades as a Scania Distributor in April 2023.

Commenting on the milestone founder Chris Kelly said:

I’d just like to say thank you for the business over the years – but most of all thanks for the memories. It has been a challenge at times, but great fun, too.


Aftersales Director Russ Warner commented:

I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to work for – and progress through the ranks at – Keltruck. I wouldn’t have made it this far without the support from Chris Kelly. Having worked with Chris for many years, there is one piece of advice that he has given and we have always taken onboard, and this is ‘it’s all about people’.

There are so many nice people that we deal with, be that staff or customers. This really is a great industry to be a part of.


Finance Director Tracey Joynes commented:

Having worked at other businesses before starting at Keltruck, I can honestly say it is very clear that this is a company that not only cares about its people, but also our local communities.

We like to give back when we can, and for this we can proudly say we have supported many charities over the years. Most recently we have reached out to our staff to find the charities close to their hearts and have supported their local fundraising.


Sales Director David Morgan commented:

We deal with some great people within the industry and I am personally proud to see our vehicles, new and old, travelling around the UK.

We know the future holds some new and exciting challenges for us and as a Scania dealer we are helping drive the shift towards sustainable transport systems, creating a world of mobility that is better for business, society and the environment.


Chairman Chris D. Kelly commented:

On our 40th anniversary I’d like to pay tribute to our remarkable founder, my father Chris Kelly, & thank him on behalf of all of us here for his vision & determination in building Keltruck Scania into the business it is today.

Thank you also to all of our customers, staff, colleagues at Scania (Great Britain) Limited and partners/suppliers. Here’s to the next 40 years!

In another anniversary the Keltruck website went live more than twenty five years ago in 1997 (before even in late 1998), making Keltruck one of the first truck dealers to go online.
