Preston gets brand new MAN truck and bus centre 01 April 2010

This week sees the opening of MAN's new purpose-built truck and bus dealership in Preston, on the Walton Summit Industrial Estate at Bamber Bridge.

The new MAN Truck & Bus Preston is adjacent to the previous premises, but has twice the capacity for sales, service and parts, and, according to branch manager Simon Yates, has the latest commercial vehicle tools and equipment.

It also demonstrates considerable investment in the North West at a time when manufacturers aren't having the easiest time – particularly following last year's opening of the £9 million dealership in Trafford Park.

"The facilities on site are state-of-the-art," comments Yates, adding, "and rightly so, because we are tasked with supporting the most modern range of trucks, buses and coaches in Europe."

He cites a new drive-in diagnostics lane, brake testing, tachograph centre, a dedicated ADR lane, MOT preparation, bus and coach servicing and repair, and trailer parts and servicing

"And it's not just about the hardware in the workshop," insists Yates. "It's also about the sales team, the skilled partsmen and the fully-trained service technicians – all combining to make the MAN dealer-experience fast, efficient and professional, and to leave truck operators in no doubt that the MAN team in Preston understands exactly what it takes to be a successful, productive haulier."
