DAF dealer loyalty scheme retaining talented staff

DAF dealer Chassis Cab has hailed its loyalty scheme, which rewards the service of young employees, a success.

The company recently paid Scott Dixey, 25, a qualified paint and body technician, £4,500 to mark his seven years with the company. Dixey completed a three-year paint and panel-beating apprenticeship course at Colchester Institute before joining the company’s Bury St Edmunds branch in 2010.

Dealer principal Robert Baxter described the firm’s young technicians as the “lifeblood of our business”. He said: “Scott is a highly valued employee and we are delighted to be able to provide him with this loyalty award.

“Chassis Cab has evolved from a small family business into a market-leading DAF dealership and to continue to drive the growth of the business we need to keep investing in the future. The bonus comes at a time when the technicians are in their mid-20s, often needing help with homes, cars or holidays.”

Dixey said: “This is a very generous gesture from the company, which has already done a lot to help me through its training programme.” Chassis Cab has 18 apprentices across its sites at Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Cambridge and Isleham, including six who were hired this year.
