Lancashire Daf has opened a pre-delivery inspection (PDI) facility at its site in Preston. It has also announced a restructure of its senior management team.

The workshop at Walton Summit includes five bays and a training centre and is expected to increase PDI volumes, provide better levels of service, and faster delivery times for hauliers, including large fleet operators.

In its management reshuffle, MD Colin Mahon has retired after 15 years with the company. He is succeeded by Paul Entwistle (pictured right), previously fleet sales director. Harvey King (pictured left), who has worked for Daf and Mercedes-Benz, has been appointed fleet sales director.

Entwistle, who has been at Lancashire Daf for more than 30 years, said: “We have a nationwide fleet sales remit, built up over many years of providing a bespoke sales, service and parts offering for fleet customers.

“Our commitment to fleet customers starts in the workshop and our new pre-delivery inspection facility will enable us to take our duty of care for customers to the next level,” he added.

Last July Lancashire Daf opened a 2,700ft2 TRP trailer and all-makes parts shop in Bolton, offering a 30-minute delivery service for stock items.

The £300,000 Lancashire Truck and Trailer development is a satellite of the Walton Summit site.
