TrustFord will expand its Long Marston fleet distribution site to create a national fleet distribution hub.
The site will expand from seven acres to 22.5 acres, and will have a capacity for around 7,000 vehicles.
It is due for completion by the end of the year and will provide a number of improved facilities, including a body shop.
Mark Wilkie, fleet and commercial vehicle director at TrustFord, said: “The expansion of our fleet distribution site in Long Marston is a huge milestone for TrustFord, which represents our commitment to our customers and the local area. The newly developed site will offer a total focus on quality across various different aspects of the business.”
TrustFord expects to complete 30,000 pre-delivery inspections per year at the site, with a heavy focus on preparing fleet vehicles and distributing them across the UK.
Around 3,000 used commercial vehicles will be refurbished per year at the site for onward sale from the dealer group’s Transit Centres throughout the country.
As part of the site’s expansion, an additional 37 jobs will be created, with roles ranging from technicians, panel beaters, drivers, to admin positions in the site’s offices.
