Andrews Sykes add Doncaster depot to our nationwide network

We are delighted to announce the opening of a new depot in the Doncaster area as the company look to increase our service capability throughout Yorkshire and beyond. This is a sign of our continued development as a business and presents us with a fantastic opportunity to capitalise further on the success we have enjoyed in recent years.

Strategically located near major motorway links, this purpose-built facility comprises of a 16,500 square feet workshop based on a 1.5-acre site. It will provide us with significant yard and storage space for increased fleet holding, in addition to a paint shop area, full testing capability, air conditioned offices, training room and modern welfare facilities for our staff.

As a result, Andrews Sykes have recruited more employees to work on site including Paul Duggan, who has recently joined the business to take up the position of depot manager. Additional workshop engineers, recruited from the local area, are currently receiving induction and training from our technical support team to ensure they are prepared for day-to-day operations.

The depot’s location in Doncaster was specifically selected because of its proximity to Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and Grimsby. Excellent nearby road routes will enable our technicians and delivery drivers to reach customers more quickly and cut waiting times on emergency callouts. Maintaining and improving our high standards of service remains a constant goal and these fantastic modern premises will help us achieve this target going forward.

David Himsworth, UK Operations Director, said: “Opening a large facility in Doncaster will strengthen our market position in the north of England – particularly Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

“It is a sign of the company’s progress that we are once again able to broaden our depot network and take on more members of staff, giving us a wonderful platform to cultivate further growth.”
