Based on a 1.8 acre site with a high security, CCTV-monitored truck parking area, the new Scania Inverness offers two full length pits, a DVSA ATF (Authorised Test Facility) with brake tester, beam setter and shaker plate, a rolling road, tachograph bay and steam cleaning equipment.
The workshop provides extended opening hours and its parts department provides components for all makes of trucks and related equipment, including trailers, tail-lifts and refrigerators.
In total, £400,000 of the £3m Scania Inverness investment has been channelled into workshop equipment and special tooling.
"As home to a wide and diverse range of transport operations, and with many local operators traditionally favouring Scania, the Inverness area has long been an important location for us," comments Claes Jacobsson, managing director of Scania (Great Britain).
"Now, we are repaying our customers' investment in us with this new service centre, which is one of the most advanced in the UK," he adds.
