Experienced transport executive Tony Kerr has been tapped on the shoulder to lead two of Automotive Holdings Group’s (AHG) brands, Genuine Truck Bodies (GTB) and Vehicle Storage and Engineering Solutions (VSE).

"We have the latest technologies, a highly-trained workforce, modern facilities and innovative new products at a one-stop location, offering the truck market place business solutions to meet specific customer requirements," he says.
