TRUST Ford has opened its new expanded Fleet Distribution Centre at Long Marston Business Park.
The facility is the biggest dedicated Ford dealer Logistics centre nationally and has created 58 new jobs in the district.
The new centre handles all fleet requirements from vehicle storage, preparation and delivery to customers. It also has dedicated areas for vehicle modifications from sign writing to ply lining and a state of the art smart repair and bodyshop facility.
TrustFord’s footprint in Long Marston has more than tripled in the past three years expanding from seven to 22.5 acres and the expanded site is expected to handle over 30,000 vehicles a year as well as housing 7,000.
Chief executive of TrustFord Steve Hood said: “This investment gives us the scale and resources to meet our fleet customers’ needs today and into the future.
“We treat fleet sales as a business priority and this investment gives us dedicated IT systems, dedicated vehicle storage and preparation facilities plus bodyshop and repair capacity to ensure we are best placed to meet our fleet customer needs in the UK.”
