Harris Group

Our History

The Harris Group was founded by the late Robert ‘Pino’ Harris (1942-2017), remembered as a pioneer whose legendary business acumen ultimately came to change the face of the transportation industry in Ireland. His business breakthrough came in the 1960s through importing Japanese brand Hino, whose trucks soon gained a reputation for toughness and reliability, and earned significant market share. He subsequently grew the Harris brand portfolio to include Isuzu (1985) and Iveco (1994), dominating the heavy goods vehicles market.

In later years Harris Group activities grew significantly to include a wide range of light commercial offerings as well as a bus and coach division, with Pino Harris’ commitment to innovation and exceptional customer service underpinning its success.
