New North London depot for Northgate

Northgate Vehicle Hire has launched a new depot on Staples Corner, to meet the demand for a national commercial fleet provider in the Brent Cross area.

The new site, which is part of part of Northgate’s 2013 business growth strategy, will be Northgate’s first presence within the area and will create 11 local jobs within its first year of operation.

Situated on the busy Staples Corner, the depot will house up to 70 vehicles at any one time and it is expected that it will eventually hold workshop facilities, creating a further five full time jobs from the third year of operation onwards.

James Fitzpatrick, area operations manager for Northgate Vehicle Hire, said: “Our research suggests that Brent Cross is in need of a national commercial fleet provider to help service the requirements of businesses within the North London area.

“The Brent Cross area has experienced a surge of business growth, providing Northgate with a unique opportunity to broaden its client base and continue its work across a range of industries, focusing on those showing real business opportunity for Northgate, such as construction, wholesale and retail trade and real estate and letting agencies.

"Add to this, the new depot’s prime location teamed with our competitive offering and full depot facilities, and we are confident that the new site will achieve strong results.”

    Good luck to new venture at Staples Corner, and the new jobs. But actually, "Brent Cross Crickelwood" plan is dying on its feet, so no sign of "surge" on its door-step, exactly.
