Arthur Spriggs and Sons is planning to develop its existing maintenance depots and open new ones across the South of England. The company will install at least two new 28-tonne commercial ramps and create a dedicated servicing area for van customers at its Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, headquarters, which has authorised repairer status from Mercedes-Benz.

It also plans to extend workshop opening to 24 hours a day. The firm is due to open a second workshop at its haulage depot near Rushden, Northamptonshire, early next year and proposals to open two more facilities in East and West Sussex are at an advanced stage.

Perry Reeves, dealer principal at Arthur Spriggs Commercials, said the business is transferring the haulage operation at its Tewkesbury headquarters to a recently-acquired site nearby. “This will allow us to focus this facility on providing the best possible levels of aftersales service to our customers,” he said.

“The aim is to expand the business while working even harder to deliver the highest standards of workmanship and care. Our haulage business is also able to support customers if need be – we can provide a truck to help complete an urgent delivery if a vehicle suffers a breakdown,” Reeves said.
