As of 15th November 2018, Rabeys were appointed ‘Authorised Repairer and Reseller’ of Iveco.
Although the appointment is via Iveco, Rabeys in fact will become the ARR for Hendy Group who are one of the largest franchise dealers in the UK having been established since 1859.
MD John Waterman said “This is an exciting brand to work with as it offers an extensive range of vehicles, i.e light commercial, heavy goods, key specialist such as Fire & Rescue and buses to name but a few. The product range successfully meets the Islands’ requirements”.
Iveco’s Paul Gilbert was very impressed with the Rabeys set up and is very much looking forward to working closely with us both in respect of aftermarket support and vehicle sales. Paul said, “I believe that this type of partnership suits both parties and we are confident that we can push the brand forward. It’s also a good time to be with Iveco as they develop across the range”.
Paola Cobliaco, Business Development Manager supported Paul’s comments and whilst the arrangement has taken a while to materialise she was quick to say “We are very much looking forward to developing the brand across the Islands; we have been looking at Rabeys for a period of time and are pleased to now have this agreement in place”.
Rabeys sent a team across to Hendy for a two day visit to not only sign the agreement but also to put names to faces and carry out some interim training across a number of keys sections. John Waterman said, ‘Although the two days were quite intense, it’s fair to say we gained a lot from the visit by way of contacts, systems and product knowledge but we have to thank Paul and his team for their hospitality which was excellent from the start to the finish’.
