Marshall Fleet Solutions has opened a brand new “state-of-the-art" flagship depot in Tamworth in the West Midlands. The multi-million-pound facility, which was officially opened last week, spans 26,000m².
The new facility is located at Tamworth’s Birch Coppice Business Park in the heart of the Midlands transport and logistics industry hub.
The facility is said to sport a purpose-built design and operational facilities to meet the “specific 24/7/365 requirements of the company’s national growth plans for both Thermo King Transport Refrigeration and Tail Lift services.”
Mark Howell, Managing Director of Marshall Fleet Solutions, said at the opening ceremony:
“Our new Tamworth facility marks a significant milestone in MFS history and I’m delighted to be opening during our 50th Anniversary year. With this excellent facility and our dedicated employees, I am confident we will increase capacity and continue to deliver award winning service to our growing customer base for the next 50+ years.”
The new facility includes an expansive multi-bay workshop which can hold up to nine HGV vehicles at one time, a National Parts & Accessories Centre (NPAC), an executive office suite, and a dedicated Centre of Excellence which builds upon the company’s existing industry-leading transport refrigeration training school.
The new Centre of Excellence will provide in-house training requirements covering every product and service discipline offered by Marshall Fleet Solutions, including transport refrigeration, tail lift and fleet management. The company will also be offering external training opportunities going forward.
“The Centre of Excellence is a very exciting addition to the new site and build upon our commitment to developing talent internally and ensuring the future of the industry.”
By opening its new Tamworth facility, Marshall Fleet Solutions now operates five depots around the UK, with two further satellite depots to support its customers.
