State-of-the-art Gatwick dealership announced
Scania is making a further investment in the South East with the development of a new state-of-the-art dealership.
Located on a three-acre greenfield site just off the M23 motorway south of Crawley, West Sussex, adjacent to the Pease Pottage Service area. The new premises will be known as Scania Gatwick and will be constructed to the same design concept as Scania Maidstone, another greenfield development which was inaugurated in December 2015.
Scania Gatwick will be almost identical to the Maidstone build and will feature four drive-through workshop bays, including facilities for gas-powered and Petroleum Regulations vehicles and a DVSA Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) lane. A full Scania parts service, including parts for all makes, trailers, and ancillary components will be offered and the site will house both new and used truck sales operations and a location for Scania Truck Rental.
Commenting on the development, Adrian Inscoe, Scania's Regional Executive Director for the South East says, "Scania Gatwick will take 12 to 14 months to construct and we anticipate being operational in late summer/early autumn 2019. Gallagher Properties, which constructed Scania Maidstone, will once again be our partners in creating Scania Gatwick. When complete, our current Scania branches in Lingfield and Lewes will be amalgamated into the new facility, with all employees transferring across. We are now very much looking forward to the opening and going on to deliver the very highest levels of service to all commercial vehicle operators in the area."
The premises will provide a bright and modern work environment and will be equipped with the very latest specialist tools and diagnostic equipment.
Nick Yandle, Gallagher Group Chief Executive, says, "This is an exceptionally well located site and we are delighted that its potential is to be fulfilled by a business of the standing of Scania. The facility is well designed and will be built to a quality benefitting Scania’s long term commitment to the Gatwick area economy."
