Regional Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle dealership Orwell Truck & Van has celebrated the opening of a new Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) at its Newmarket site.
The opening follows the relocation of the company’s Newmarket operation last month to a new £1million development on the Pines Industrial Estate, just outside the town in Exning and close by its previous base.
Besides the ATF lane, where testing is carried out on trucks, the new complex includes a state-of-the-art equipped workshop – three times the size of the previous site – enabling Orwell also to offer tachograph calibration services alongside general servicing for all commercial vehicles and Class 4, 5 and 7 MoTs for light commercial vehicles and passenger cars,
In all, the new site provides around 2,000 square metres of office and workshop space, alongside a van showroom and extensive new and used van displays outside.
The site, which was previously a City Link distribution depot, also has a larger and more comprehensively stocked parts department compared with the former site.
