Haydock Commercial Vehicles' new Warrington premises inaugurated
On Thursday 22 March 2018, His Excellency Mr Torbjörn Sohlström, Sweden's Ambassador to the UK, visited Warrington to inaugurate Scania dealer Haydock Commercial Vehicle Limited's new state-of-the-art service centre.
His Excellency was joined at the event by local transport operators, senior executives from Scania (Great Britain) Limited and representatives of the site developer, Carefoot Group plc .
The new development, which represents an investment of £6.3m and has been constructed in accordance with Scania's global template for efficient and sustainable dealer premises, is located on a 3.25-acre green field site adjacent to junction 8 of the M62 on Omega North, Warrington. The facilities include an eight-bay workshop, four-bay environmental station, an extensive secure commercial vehicle parking area and will provide a full range of all-makes servicing, repair, maintenance and parts services together with new and used truck sales.
"Haydock Commercial Vehicles has been a Scania dealer since the mid-1980s, serving the Preston-Liverpool-Warrington triangle, Chester and north Wales," says Dealer Principal Simon Dykes. "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."
For Scania (Great Britain) Limited, Managing Director Claes Jacobsson 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."
