Dawsongroup will open its doors this month to a new purpose-built facility in Harworth, near Doncaster.
It will become Dawsonrentals new Northern hub for its Trucks and Vans, housing an expanding fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles and a team of 30 people.
The investment will include hard standing for several hundred vehicles housed securely with electric perimeter fencing and dedicated workspace, office accommodation and employee resting facilities as well as a parts storage facility and two wash bays.
The site will also feature a modular body-shop which will enable the team to expedite repairs of all kinds to up to ‘jig’ level and mobile maintenance facilities to further ensure that customer vehicle downtime is kept to a minimum.
John Fletcher, managing director of Dawsonrentals truck & trailer, said: “This is an important area for commerce within the UK as a whole, so it is important for us to be able to serve it both effectively and efficiently. Our business offers everything from 7.5t trucks to 44t tractors, along with dry freight and refrigerated trailers. The Group’s investment in Harworth gives us and our colleagues in the vans business everything that we need to offer a first-class service alongside one of the most diverse and modern rental fleets in the country.”
