Mercedes-Benz South West To Expand Their Plymouth LCV Centre

Mercedes-Benz South West is expanding its Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) Centre located in Estover, Plymouth, due to an increase in demand over the past 18 months. The family-run franchise employs over 600 people across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset is acquiring the distribution centre currently in use by DPD to fulfil the expansion.

Following three UK lockdowns, the need for vans has grown due to the popularity of online retail and the requirement for more courier and delivery services across the region. Mercedes-Benz South West has seen visitor numbers to the after-sales divisions increase by 18% compared to last year and 22% in 2019. Mercedes-Benz South West are preparing to accommodate the growing demand from those looking to keep their van safe and maintained following the boost in van sales. The expansion will also include further facilities for staff including a new communal area.

The growth of Mercedes-Benz South West’s LCV business in Plymouth also brings many new job opportunities to the area with recruitment underway for the site and two new Service Team Manager positions already filled. Vacancies actively being hired, include LCV Technician roles and an office-based position to be advertised in the near future. Mercedes-Benz South West has always believed it is important to support those in the early stages of their careers and is also recruiting for an LCV apprentice to join the team and help shape the future of the business.

Lee Nash, After Sales Director at Mercedes-Benz South West comments:

“It’s an exciting time for our LCV Centre in Plymouth. Due to the growth of our key accounts we have simply outgrown our current site. We are really proud of the support we have been able to offer our customers since the pandemic began. It’s great that as a result we have adapted and thrived and are now able to offer more support and opportunities for the local area and wider region.”
