Stuart Foulds, chairman and chief executive officer of TrustFord said: “I am really proud of every one of our 3,000 colleagues who, through these difficult times, stepped up to the mark and delivered these tremendous results.

“Our fleet and CV department, as I have said before, has and continues to  really outperform the market delivering an amazing 23,000 commercial vehicles with an order bank today running at a further 40,000 orders secured.

“I’m also really delighted with progress in our PartsPlus business which delivered £23m of parts to our wholesale customers in this period. Total vehicle sales for the period were in excess of 50,000 and we continue to see record levels of enquiries from customers across UK who absolutely love our TrustFord NOW proposition on both sales and servicing.”
