Located on Ashbourne Road, in Mackworth, the VW Van Franchise previously used facilities within the wider commercial vehicle dealership, but advances in vehicle technology and demand in recent times have led to a need for a bespoke, VW-specific workshop environment.
“The existing facility no longer enabled us to provide the service needed to customers, particularly following the success of the VW Crafter and new technology like BEV,” explained Gareth Kaye, LCV franchise director.
He added: “This new facility will provide much shorter lead times for customers and make the work environment much better for technicians, which will in turn aid productivity.”
A similar scheme is planned for the company’s Nottingham Volkswagen Van Centre later this year, as Motus Commercials continues to build on its relationship with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
Matt Lawrenson, managing director of Motus Commercials, said: “We are in the midst of many changes across the commercial vehicle industry with emissions targets playing a huge part in that. New vehicle technologies signal a need for new facilities, and Motus Group (UK) is fully committed to supporting our dealer franchises where needed.”
