JCB chairman Lord Bamford was in Scotland last week to officially open the new Edinburgh depot of dealer Scot JCB.
The facility is six times bigger than the previous depot and represents “a massive investment” by the dealer which also owns adjacent plots to allow further expansion if required.
Lord Bamford commented: “Scot JCB is one of the largest JCB dealers in the world and has continued to expand and be successful by investing for growth. This new depot will take sales and service to a whole new level and ensure the service provided to customers goes above and beyond expectations.”
Robin Bryant, joint managing director at Scot JCB Group, added: “Every aspect is bigger and better than before and the over-all impact will be a significant enhancement of the fantastic service we are able to deliver for our customers.
“The scale and the calibre of the facilities here will deliver tangible improvements to the availability of equipment and the speed and quality of the experience we provide to our customers.”
The depot has four double workshop bays, automated oil and services delivery to the central workshop module, a 225 sq. metre parts warehouse, sales office, training room and a large yard to showcase equipment.
Scot JCB has supplied and serviced JCB machinery for over 50 years and operates from 17 depots from Muir of Ord down to Carnforth in Lancashire.
