Manchetts Peterborough has joined the UK commercial vehicle dealer network for MAN Truck & Bus UK, providing sales and service.
The appointment comes on the back of the acquisition of Motus Commercials and its existing facility and workforce.
Remaining on the same site, located in the Fengate area of Peterborough and with a satellite depot at Pinchbeck in Spalding, Manchetts will continue to provide customers with a one-stop-shop solution for vehicle sales, service and parts for MAN Trucks, Vans, Bus and Coach.
The Manchetts Peterborough facility features a fully equipped and comprehensive specified seven-bay workshop, including an ATF testing lane and a tachograph calibration facility., supported by a fully stocked parts warehouse. Both sites also operate Mobile24 customer support vehicles.
Manchetts Peterborough has its own dedicated MAN TGE van sales executive based at the Fengate site and MAN has its own direct truck sales executive at the same site.
“At Manchetts Group we pride ourselves on our comprehensive proven track record of successful sales and customer aftersales service.” said Peter Bradshaw, Branch Manager, Manchetts Peterborough. “We aim to provide an individual and personalised service to all our customers, truck, van, bus and coach, whilst taking advantage of this excellent opportunity to grow and further expand the business across the region.”
The appointment forms part of the continuing development and investment strategy of the MAN UK dealer network; it also announced the acquisition of the HRVS Group of dealers last week.
Eva Evans, head of network development and strategic projects, MAN Truck & Bus UK, said: “Taking over the existing Motus Commercials facility and the skills and services of the highly motivated, fully trained and experienced workforce is key to continuity and ensures we meet the high levels of service demanded by our customers.”
