Refuse collection vehicle manufacturer Dennis Eagle has announced the relocation of its Leeds Service Centre to a new, larger centre at Gildersome Spur, providing customers in the region with more convenient access to a wide range of services.
The new facility includes a state of the art workshop area, along with parts warehouse, training conference room, separate offices and a main reception area.
A drop-in event for customers and employees will take place from 10am ' 2pm on 22 March to mark the official opening of the site. This will include a product clinic providing information on the latest developments, as well as a chance to see some of the latest products from Dennis Eagle and Terberg Matec UK.
Attendees will also be able to view live demonstrations of the DennisConnect telematics system, as well as a display highlighting the history and heritage of the brand in the region.
Service Centre Manager Gary McLauchlan said: 'The workshop area at our new site is around one third larger than at our previous facility, while our office space has almost doubled in size. This will provide us with greater capacity, enabling us to deliver an enhanced service to our customers.
'We currently employ 15 members of staff but hope that the relocation will give us the opportunity to expand our workforce over the coming months, to include taking on more apprentices'
Geoff Rigg, aftermarket director for Dennis Eagle, said: 'The relocation of our Leeds Service Centre is an extremely positive development and reflects the growing demand for our services in the region. Our heritage in this area dates back to 1901 and the Yorkshire Patent Steam Wagon Company. This became part of the Hestair Group in the 1970s which eventually became known as Dennis Eagle.
'We look forward to welcoming customers to our open day, which will provide an opportunity for networking with local authority and private sector decision makers, as well as key Dennis Eagle Directors, Managers and employees'
Services offered by the new Service Centre will include MOTs, servicing and inspections, vehicle preparation and presentation, body and chassis refurbishment and defect clearance. It will also offer a comprehensive parts stock available for same or next day delivery.
