All Truck Commercial Ltd

All Truck Commercial Ltd started trading in November 2012 with just three staff, including founder and Managing Director Martin Shaw.

18th April 2019

About the business

The company’s USP is its approach within the commercial vehicle sector. All Truck offer maintenance, repair and service through their workshops or fully mobile on-site engineering service to every model of light or heavy commercial vehicle on the road throughout Scotland and the North of England. Wider offerings include 24/7 breakdown assistance and a vehicle recovery service, while the firm’s specialist crane arm has grown and has been operating as a separate company since 2016.

For other businesses who are looking to grow and expand, my advice would be to go and talk to Business Gateway and find out about the information and support that is available from them.

How Business Gateway has helped

Martin Shaw has worked closely with Business Gateway and has benefited from the organisations’ support and advice as the business has grown and succeeded. Martin said: “Whenever we’re looking to take a next step as a business, whether that’s diversifying or taking on a major new account, I work with Lorraine, a Growth Advisor at Business Gateway.

Among Business Gateway’s support to All Truck, Martin highlights both access to grants and help with taking an all-important step back to take a holistic look at the business. Martin explains: “Through working with Business Gateway, we have been able to access two RSA Grants which have helped us grow and diversify. Business Gateway have been invaluable, both in giving me advice, support and training and helping me gain clarity about the future and growth of the business. They are a great help when I want to take a step back and look at our structure and strategic direction. “
