The 3-acre site, which is located alongside the A12 between Chelmsford and Colchester, houses a 2,500sq m building. Within this are nine full-length truck and trailer bays, three of which have 22m pits, with another eight set aside for van maintenance and repairs. There is also an ATF lane.
Speaking at last week’s open day event, Motus Truck & Van MD Lee Seward (pictured) said: “We began construction work just under a year ago, but this project has been a lot longer in the planning. We’re delighted, therefore, to be welcoming our guests today, and to give them this opportunity to see for themselves a flagship development of which we’re all very proud.
“The very substantial development here at Witham, and those underway at other branches, reflect our determination to provide customers with an experience and a level of service that matches the reputations of the brands and the quality of the products we represent.”
Mercedes-Benz Trucks head of network development Mark Williams added: “It’s great to see Motus Truck & Van opening this exceptional facility, which underscores its commitment to operators and represents another big step forward for our ever-improving network. Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ Customer First strategy is focused on ensuring that points of representation are in the right locations and easily accessed. Witham ticks both boxes admirably.”
The new site is open round-the-clock, from 6am on Mondays until 10pm on Fridays, and on Saturday mornings.
