Renault Truck Commercials Felixstowe has moved to its new purpose-built dealer premises located at Hodgkinson Road, Felixstowe in Suffolk.
The new 1.5 acre site provides the full range of Renault Trucks services and features three bay workshop, bodyshop, tacho lane and latest diagnostic equipment, providing all-makes servicing, repairs and maintenance, and Renault Trucks’ 24/7 roadside assistance.
Located just over a mile from RTC Felixstowe’s previous premises at Sub-Station Road, the new site is run by the same team, headed up by service manager, Marc Chetty.
Con Rooney, managing director at Renault Trucks Commercials, said: “We are delighted to open the doors to our new Felixstowe site today, which offers a superb, eco-friendly retail experience for our customers and a comfortable working environment with a particular focus on wellbeing for our employees.
“Marking a significant investment, our newest depot has been designed from the ground up to deliver maximum vehicle uptime. It is an important part of our growth strategy for the Felixstowe area that will help support our customers and colleagues for many years to come.”
Offering new vehicle sales from 3.1–44 tonnes, RTC Felixstowe also sells and supports vehicles from the Used Trucks by Renault Trucks range.
The site also features a rest room with refreshments, shower, free WiFi and large screen TV for waiting drivers.
Renault Trucks Commercials said the site’s eco-friendly design and build are to Renault Trucks’ exacting dealer and sustainability standards to meet its commitment to net-zero status across its dealer network and operations in the UK and Ireland by 2030.
Renault Trucks has reduced the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of its T, T High, C and K ranges with new DE11 and DE13 engines and has introduced a larger battery for its Master ZE electric van that boosts its range to 118 miles.
Sustainable solutions on site include photovoltaic panels, insulated doors and envelope cladding, LED lighting with sensors, mechanical heat recovery and efficient plant throughout to keep emissions to a minimum. Water-based wall paints are also used throughout the building.
