There’s a new service site for Scottish trucks, thanks to Scania.
The company has unveiled its a flagship, state-of-the-art centre at Eurocentral.
It represents a £10m investment and occupies a 7.8 acre plot.
Therefore, it contains a fully operational workshop and parts department.
In addition, there is office accommodation and extensive secure parking within the plot.
Furthermore, the building was recently used as a venue to host Scania’s Net Zero Conference.
There, the company spoke about its sustainable agenda and plans for supporting decarbonisation.
Impressively, the building is completely fossil free and boasts a range of sustainable features.
For example, there’s a high-efficiency underfloor air-source heating system.
Meanwhile, sustainable drainage and environmental containment has been added in accordance with local regulations.
Also, there’s water recycling in the vehicle wash and LED lighting throughout.
Finally, the service site gets roof-mounted energy-generating photovoltaic panels.
Scania says the new facility will become the central hub for employees and customers of Scania Scotland.
Therefore, the previous workshop at Bellshill has now closed and all employees have moved across.
Christian Levin, CEO and president, Scania, officially inaugurated the site when he visited earlier this month.
Meanwhile, James Armstrong, Scania GB’s MD was proud of the new service site.
“Scania has a clear vision to reduce its carbon footprint.
“And by opening buildings of this kind, it really shows how we are moving in the right direction.
“It’s an impressive building and will offer employees and customers a fantastic experience.”
Furthermore, James Colbourne, dealer director, Scania Scotland said he was excited to get started.
“It gives me a warm feeling and that’s not just from the underfloor heating,” he mused.
“However, it is from the progression we have made in developing this new facility.”
