Scania dealer Haydock Commercial Vehicles has open the doors to its brand new, ‘state-of-the-art’ service centre in Warrington.
On Thursday, March 22 His Excellency Torbjörn Sohlström, Sweden’s Ambassador to the UK, visited the town to inaugurate the facility. Joining him at the event were local transport operators, senior executives from Scania Great Britain and representatives from the site’s developer, Carefoot Group.
The £6.3m development has been constructed in accordance with Scania’s ‘global template for efficient and sustainable dealer premises’, and is located on a 3.25-acre green field site on Omega North, opposite junction 8 of the M62.
An eight-bay workshop, four-bay environmental station and extensive parking area have all been incorporated into the new site, which will offer servicing, repairs, maintenance and parts for all makes – alongside new and used truck sales.
Claes Jacobsson, Managing Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited, says: “On behalf of the entire Scania organisation, I would like to congratulate the Haydock Commercial Vehicles team on this prestigious development and wish them every success for the future.
“The company has an excellent reputation for customer service and I am sure these new premises will enable the team to raise the bar even higher and set new standards of service for transport operators in the Warrington area.
“In commenting, I would also like to draw attention to the impressive range of environmental features built into the premises.
“These have been developed in accordance with Scania’s sustainability goals and will make a major contribution by minimising the impact of the operation upon the local environment.”
Simon Dykes, Dealer Principle, added: “Haydock Commercial Vehicles has been a Scania dealer since the mid-1980s, serving the Preston-Liverpool-Warrington triangle, Chester and north Wales.
“Over the years, the company has enjoyed considerable growth and sustained success, and this latest development represents a reinforcement of our long-term commitment to the area’s transport operators and the Scania brand.
“The project has seen us invest significantly in a wide range of advanced technology and specialised equipment required to maintain modern commercial vehicles. In doing so, our aim is to ensure compliance and help our customers operate as safely, efficiently and profitably as possible.”
