Lantern Announces Expansion of Prestige Transportation Division

07 March 2014
Lantern Recovery Group announced that the acquisition of Lords Breakdown Recovery Limited, established since 1996, has been completed.

This acquisition enhances the existing capabilities and expertise in the Prestige and Specialist Vehicle Transportation sector of the business, where Lantern look to expand on into the future.

This is a high quality and trusted specialised service for customers with high value vehicles. The fleet of covered, fully-demountable transporters are able to transport intact working vehicles, as well as immobile ones, safely and reliably anywhere in the UK and Europe.

As well as acquiring the business, Lantern have retained the staff and in particular a team of prestige drivers, who apart from displaying the highest standards of professionalism, are amongst the elite and experienced in the art of handling high value vehicles.

The acclaimed service and concept of prestige is closely tied to the Lords Brand and the prestigious service provided is and will continue to be considered by all, as the standard to be attained.

“Lantern is the performance company,” said Ray Coleman, Chief Executive Officer at Lantern. “Our goal is to have the broadest but more importantly the best portfolio of Prestige Vehicle Transportation services to exceed each and every requirement and expectation of our customer. The acquisition of Lords is a perfect fit with that strategy. The Lords brand and solutions are designed for how people want this service to be performed now”.

Ray Coleman further commented, “Lantern’s passion and commitment for meeting its customers’ needs and quality of service delivered, is the driving force behind this targeted and structured growth”.

Having acquired Lords, Lantern will enable the Lords dreams and vision to be transformed into a reality. It also brings a whole new dimension to the service which Lords can offer its customers, ranging from Commercial Recovery to Plant and Multi-Load Transportation services. This expansion demonstrates how Lords is a natural fit for a company which wants to help reinvent the Vehicle transportation and recovery industry.
