Truck and Bus Wales and West is investing £8m on a brand new site in Avonmouth, which is set to open this autumn.
Speaking at the ceremonial sod-turning last week, Truck and Bus Wales and West MD Billy Nairn (photographed left with Volvo Truck & Bus UK MD Christian Coolsaet) explained that the new 7.14 acre site replaces its two current premises on the Avonmouth Industrial Estate, which sit on opposite sides of the road. “Being in two buildings isn’t good for efficiency or productivity,” he says. “We decided a long time ago that we needed to find new premises, but it took us 10 years to locate the right piece of land. It will be fantastic to finally have everything under one roof.” The new site will feature an 18-bay workshop and new and used vehicle sales.
Truck and Bus Wales and West is also currently expanding its Evesham site, with work expected to be completed in June.
