Dorset-based commercial vehicle bodybuilder Horton Commercials has added a £2m production centre to its portfolio.

The 1.1-acre former Marben Engineering site on the Ferndown Industrial Estate will produce bespoke vehicle bodies, as well as Horton’s Easy Mover range for the 3.5-tonne van market. Horton is keeping its other site - also on the estate - for vehicle refurbishment work.

Director Dave Wolfenden said: “A full gantry lifting system to aid production and improve health and safety has been introduced. “We have started to expand the team of coachbuilders and expect to provide in-house training to welder/fabricators and sheet metal workers as production capacity increases,” he added.
