Our History

In 1996, Riverside Truck Rental (RTR) was formed and Sid Sadique took ownership in 2006. By 2019, after several acquisitions in addition to steady organic growth, the company now headquarters from Skelmersdale Lancashire with a further ten workshop depots across the UK including Manchester, Calne, Colchester and Bellshill. NRG Riverside also boasts an extensive national network of third party suppliers and support infrastructure.

In 2020, Palatine Private Equity acquired a majority shareholding in our operating company, NRG Fleet Services. Shortly thereafter, in an effort to acknowledge the many facets of what the business can offer, RTR rebranded and the trading name of NRG Riverside was born.

Today, NRG Riverside operates in excess of 2,500 vehicles and employs 226 people across the UK under the new leadership of our Chief Executive Officer, Darren Powell. With a growth trajectory that is driven by continued investment in not just new fleet, but also its people, NRG Riverside continues to outperform its competitors and provides exceptional service to its customers.
