About Us

About Us

HTC Croydon is part of the HTC Group of companies, which is privately owned by Ballyvesey Holdings. Ballyvesey Holdings 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.

HTC Croydon & Belvedere and DGC Limited currently trade from its two locations at Beddington Lane, Croydon & Crabtree Manorway North Belvedere. A perfect fit geographically for HTC who also have dealers at Heathrow, Luton, Park Royal, Reading and Oxford, leaving our enlarged company a significant player in the DAF dealer network and one of the largest companies in the Ballyvesey Holdings Group.

HTC 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. 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. HTC Croydon & Belvedere were formally known as well respected DAF dealer Morgan Elliott DAF until the HTC Group purchased the company in September 2010.
