£100k investment nears completion at Clugston
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 22 Jun 2017
CLUGSTON Distribution’s large vehicle maintenance facility has seen further investment as part of a £100,000 programme of works.
The seven-acre site on Scunthorpe’s Brigg Road has seen a fully approved specialised DVSA tachograph repair, maintenance and calibration centre added, alongside a DVSA authorised testing facility for light goods vehicles.
It now provides a full turnkey solution for maintaining commercial vehicles and trailers. The service includes repairs to bodywork, pressurised powder tankers, discharge equipment, International Carriage of Dangerous Goods fuel tankers and long load trailers, alongside fleet washing and cleaning, all of which is carried out by fully trained staff.
Nigel Graham, fleet service manager for Clugston Distribution, said: “The vehicle maintenance facility at our Scunthorpe distribution headquarters has been developed to provide a full packaged service for any business looking for commercial vehicle repairs.
“We have a comprehensive stock of vehicle, trailer and tanker spares on site, providing the capabilities to take on most maintenance projects. The latest investment in tachograph service and repairs allows us to offer a total package for all services that are required by an LGV operator.”
Clugston Distribution is also a fully authorised Renault Trucks UK franchise service as well as parts dealership and a Lohr transport service and parts agent, repairing a significant number of vehicles for both companies. The latter is the world-leader in the car transporter market – a vital part of the area’s logistics make-up.
In order to manage greater demand, there are plans in place for further developments that include expanding and refurbishing the site’s large 12-bay workshop and adding an approved testing facility for inspecting vehicles transporting dangerous goods.
David Heath, distribution director for Clugston Distribution, said: “We have seen significant demand for our vehicle maintenance services over recent years, with the workshop becoming a key part of our ever-expanding distribution offering.”
