At the latter end of 2017, TruckEast purchased the premises next door, doubling its overall size. Investing £2.5 million in the proposed new development it will combine offices, parts and service facilities all designed in accordance with Scania’s global dealership principles.
With an increasing level of local developments along the A5, the expansion is deemed essential to keep up with future demand.
John Biggin, managing director comments, “This development at Crick is a big investment and will enable us to continue to deliver excellent service levels to our existing customers whilst supporting the growth in the region. It brings an exciting future for everyone involved – both staff and customers alike.”
Working with C-Squared Architects, the plans submitted for the site will take the existing four-bay workshop to nine-bays and include dedicated customer areas, large tool and parts storage along with offices, staff welfare and meeting facilities. The inclusion of an ATF lane is also being explored with the DVSA.
