New premises for Commercial Motors (Wales) means more work and more jobs

  • 15 January 2014
  • By Kevin Swallow

Commercial Motors (Wales) has taken on more work and employees following its move to a new facility in Newport.

Chairman of the MAN and Isuzu dealership Roger Sheddick said the company’s original location and premises held the business back. “Within just five weeks of being open, we have seen actual business and enquiries both race ahead,” he said.

“The position of the new site is ideal for operators and the large, secure yard area means we now have far more flexibility in terms of taking vehicles in.

“We’ve made a very significant investment into expanding this business, both with the site acquisition and the purchase and installation of the latest workshop equipment,” Sheddick added.

The new 1,858m2 facility has 10 workshop bays, which includes an Authorised Testing Facility (ATF).

Hilary Devey, a former Dragon on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den and founder of the Pall-Ex pallet network, opened the facility paying tribute to the management team for its hard work and vision in the face of the recession.

The dealership will now handle sales and aftermarket for both franchises, as well as incorporating MAN Rental. MAN is hoping the dealership will be added to the MAN TopUsed network.

The dealership was taken over five years ago by current owners, Roger and Gill Sheddick, who previously ran Sheddick Transport before selling it to Norbert Dentressangle, and Robert and Mary Manchip. Robert was formerly sales director for 16 years at a Mercedes-Benz dealership.
