The History behind our Business
Set up in 1989 by the Kemp Family, TRS started its identity as Trowell Recovery Services Limited and operated as a Vehicle Recovery Company in the East Midlands, with a team of over 50 employees across four depots.
TRS acted as a ‘one stop’ shop for all vehicle recovery, roadside and automotive requirements, including many of the services we offer today. The Trowell trucks were a common sight in and around the locality up until 2007, with a fleet operating 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
In 2004, TRS Commercials Limited was established as an Isuzu Truck dealership acting as a Truck sales, servicing, parts and warranty dealership in the East Midlands area. TRS still maintain a close connection with the Main Dealer Network in the UK. The experience TRS has with Isuzu Truck really started when they were added to the Trowell Recovery Services fleet!
During 2007, the family decided to sell the Roadside and Recovery aspects of the business to a local competitor and to focus entirely on building TRS Commercials into the business you recognise today. We now run two separate divisions of the business one, our Vehicle Centre, specialising in vehicle maintenance, MOT and repairs and two our Used Parts department. For information on our Vehicle Centre please visit the TRS Vehicle Centre Website.
We remain a family business to this day and we are proud of our roots in the recovery industry, it means we understand the urgency behind every customer’s needs.
Since 2004, we have taken our experience and specialist knowledge as a former Isuzu Truck Main Dealer and developed the largest stock of Used Isuzu Truck Parts in the country. We have also diversified into Mitsubishi Canter parts in recent years and have a large comprehensive stock of Mitsubishi parts and we have recently started stocking some Nissan Cabstar Parts. We hold in excess of 2000 Isuzu Truck & Mitsubishi Canter part variations on site at our depot in Stanton by Dale, Derbyshire including Isuzu engines, Isuzu gearboxes, Isuzu cabs and hundreds of smaller parts. We are conveniently located 5 minutes from Junction 25 of the M1 and are easily accessible from both Nottingham and Derby. Our team are proactive, positive, experienced professional.
