BCA has opened a new refurbishment facility in Doncaster for Mercedes-Benz light commercial vehicles, and is recruiting staff to support a range of services.
The Doncaster facility will manage 2,500 used LCVs a year, handling inspection, refurbishment and pre-sale imaging for the manufacturer's approved used van programme.
It is recruiting trained mechanics and vehicle inspectors to expand the team to ensure a consistent level of service is delivered to Mercedes-Benz at all times.
Mercedes-Benz Vans UK’s van remarketing manager Mick Glover said: “The van market continues to go from strength to strength in the UK and it was vital that we chose a partner that shared our approach to delivering rigorous standards and a high level of service.
"BCA has developed a dedicated operation that will support our goals for the approved used van programme.”
BCA’s Doncaster operation is working with colleges in Doncaster and Scunthorpe to put in place training and apprentice opportunities to develop the next generation of skilled inspectors and vehicle technicians.
BCA Doncaster’s general manager John Brown said: “We have developed an advanced facility that can work flexibly to meet the requirements of the Mercedes-Benz used programme. It is great to be creating a world-class automotive facility in Doncaster.”
The team will handle inspection services, mechanical safety related checks, maintenance and service work.
All elements of bodywork repair will be undertaken on-site, alongside valeting and imaging.
