On Thursday, 22 March 2018, His Excellency Torbjörn Sohlström, Sweden's Ambassador to the UK, visited Warrington to open Scania dealer, Haydock Commercial Vehicle Limited's new state-of-the-art service centre.
The Ambassador 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," Dealer Principal Simon Dykes said. "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."
Scania (Great Britain) Limited’s Managing Director, Claes Jacobsson said, "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.”
