Keltruck has opened a new £2½m depot at Manton Colliery in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. The depot was officially opened by local MP, John Mann (Bassetlaw, Labour) & MEP, Roger Helmer (East Midlands, Conservative), along with Chris Kelly, Chairman & Managing Director, & Hans-Christer Holgersson, Managing Director of Scania (Great Britain) Ltd.
The depot is located at the former Manton Colliery site on Retford Road & began operating in May. “I am delighted that we now have such a significant presence in Worksop,” said Chris Kelly. “The new depot has led to the creation of 24 new full-time jobs & is open six days a week to serve the B&Q operation & customers in the Worksop area.”
On offer at the £2.5 million depot is a 10,000 square feet, eight-bay dealer point with an air conditioning service centre for trucks, buses & coaches & an MoT test preparation centre.
“While it is disappointing that we have not yet been granted MoT test centre status by VOSA, the depot’s performance since we opening in May has been extremely strong & we are looking forward to the future with great confidence,” said Mr Kelly.
Over 50 local business people & dignitaries attended the opening ceremony.
