WTL TRUCK & VAN OPENS DOORS AT NEW SITE IN DUXFORD
WTL Truck & Van Centres has opened the doors to its new dealership at Duxford, home to the Renault Trucks approved service dealer for Cambridge. Part of a £7 million investment by parent company, Welch Group, the state-of-the-art facility is equipped with 8 full size bays, a dedicated ATF line and a tacho bay for digital and analogue tachograph repairs.
Designed with the customer in mind, the 10,000 square foot facility, which has been finished to Renault Trucks’ exacting dealer standards, is shared with Welch Group’s road haulage business, Welch Transport Ltd. It stands on a 2 acre site and is strategically located by Junction 10 of the M11, offering a convenient gateway to East Anglia, the Midlands, London as well as the Ipswich and Felixstowe ports.
After outgrowing its former premises in Cambridge, where the company was based for 60 years, the new facility, which is twice the size, builds on the company’s first class reputation for service across the region. WTL Truck & Van Duxford offers a complete range of aftersales services for all makes of vehicles, including MOT testing, tachograph repairs and Renault Trucks 24/7 roadside assistance.
Managing Director of WTL Truck & Van Centres, Jim Welch, comments on the decision to open a new facility: “Our combined business has expanded by 50% in the last 5 years, partly due to our successful Renault Trucks dealership, and we needed bigger and better premises to keep pace with this demand and also allow room for future growth. After selling our old Cambridge site to residential developers, we have been able to invest the proceeds into our new Duxford facility.”
Jim continues: “The Renault Trucks Euro 6 range is gaining a well-deserved reputation for fuel economy, reliability and performance and we are delighted to be involved in this success, and very much look forward to welcoming new and old customers to Duxford. The time was right for WTL to invest for the future and we hope our new premises will serve us well for the next 60 years!”
