Volvo Trucks has completed a major investment in its aftersales network, with the opening of Volvo Truck and Bus Centre’s new Reading dealerpoint in Worton Grange, Reading. Representing a multi-million pound investment, the facility will be run as a 24/7 operation.
The new Reading operation is located just minutes from the busy M4 corridor which should prove popular for transport operators going in and out of London.
Speaking at the official opening day event, which included a ride and drive element for Volvo Truck and Bus customers, Peter Groome, Managing Director at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London said, “We are delighted to open this new facility, which is in a very important location for us. We now have major facilities close to the three major trunk roads into London – the M40, M1 and now the M4 – which is something that our customers wanted.”
The Volvo Truck and Bus Centre Reading site houses 14 large fully-equipped bays as well as a fully-equipped training centre and parts outlet. The training centre will be used on a full-time basis for technicians throughout the network who need training on anything from health and safety to advanced and future powertrain technologies. The parts desk will be open to all customers, with deliveries twice a day.
