Irish Commercials, the Volvo Truck and Bus Dealership is set to open a new depot in Santry, North Dublin early next year.
The seven double bay depot will offer a range of services including Volvo truck and bus maintenance and repairs, Volvo genuine parts, Tachograph Centre, and will also contain the company’s Partech division, which supplies parts for all makes of trucks, buses and trailers.
The Santry depot, similar to Irish Commercials’ depots in Naas and Galway, will be purpose built and ideally positioned to support and develop its growing customer base in the area.
Located two minutes from Dublin Airport and just off the M50 and M1, the new depot will serve north Dublin and surrounding areas. Naas will remain the head office and the preferable location for customers further south along the M50, M7 and surrounding counties.
The opening of a third depot is viewed as an important step for Irish Commercials in delivering on customer commitments.
Commenting on the new depot, Managing Director Barry Horan said: “We are delighted to announce this next step in the development of our business and know that getting closer to our customers in north Dublin, will further enhance the service we provide. Vehicles are becoming more advanced and compliance is also an increasing challenge for our customers; because of this, customers are trusting us more and more with the maintenance on their vehicles while they are concentrating on their own core business. This noticeable trend means that we must be closer to our valued customers geographically, and we have received fantastic feedback from them as a result of this announcement. Of course, we also expect to grow our customer base in the north Dublin region as the location of our new Santry depot, is a very convenient one for the truck and bus operators in the region.
“I’d like to thank the Irish Commercials team for their work and dedication in developing our business to the stage where we could make this next investment, to Volvo and our other suppliers for their support, and of course to our customers for their support and loyalty over 44 years.”
