About Us

About Us

HTC is a privately owned group which began in 1970 under the Vales Group of companies in Watford, Herts. They were one of the first dealers to take on a DAF franchise in the UK. The company was acquired by Ballyvesey Holdings in 2007, a privately owned group established in 1970 whose main activities are in road transport, trailer manufacturing, vehicle and construction equipment sales and supportive services to the road transport industry.

Over the last 38 years our expertise in sales, finance and service has become second to none, as we regard customer satisfaction as our highest priority. All our customers benefit from organisational programmes recognised by ISO 9001 accreditation which manifests itself in fast turn around in our extensive workshop facilities and high stock levels of parts for both DAF and all makes through our TRP parts range.

Our hugely varied customers include smaller fleets run by regional manufacturing and construction companies’ right up to national logistics operators running mixed fleets and specialist trailers.

As industry changes are driven both by efficiency and environmental issues, Heathrow Truck Centre Ltd. strives to remain at the forefront of dealer performance by undertaking an ongoing training programme, ensuring staff across all departments use the latest facilities at our disposal, and can advise all our customers of the latest advances made by DAF Trucks.

Our company mission is “To be recognised by our customers, suppliers, investors and colleagues as true partners in business by delivering excellence in all that we do”.
