Wilson Dennison, Chairman of Dennison Commercials said: “It is a very proud moment to be here to officially open up our new Coleraine Depot. We moved to this site back in 1993 with two staff. Today we have a team of 12 and a five bay workshop – offering a much better service to our customers in the North West. I want to thank Alan and his team for all their input to the development of the new site, for working through all the construction to provide our customers with a business-as-usual service, and of course thank you to all our customers. Without your continued support and custom none of this would be possible!”

Robert Grozdanovski, Managing Director, Volvo Trucks UK & Ireland, who officially opened the new Depot at the launch commented: “Congratulations to Dennison Commercials for delivering this state-of-the-art facility for customers to access, and for the staff who will work in it. Dennison Commercials was one of the first UK dealerships I visited and it is an honour to be here nine months later to be part of this milestone for the company. I am extremely proud to be part of this celebration with one of Volvo’s most established dealers in the UK and Ireland, and who will be celebrating 50 years with Volvo in 2020. I wish this new Depot every success in continuing to develop strong relationships with new and long established customers.”
