North Devon business responds to growing need for haulage repairs
A North Devon commercial vehicle repairs centre has recently expanded its team and lengthened its hours of operation to accommodate an increase in trade.
ALX Commercials, which is based on the Pathfields Business Park has grown to a team of ten, following the appointment of a new mechanic to the business and a move to a shift pattern for its employees.
The appointment provides the business with the flexibility and resource to offer commercial haulage companies with repairs assistance 16 hours a day, seven days a week.
The business also offers an on call recovery service 24/7. This ensures that any commercial vehicle in need of repairs or maintenance in the region, can be recovered, repaired and back on the road in minimal time. As part of its service, it also provides courtesy vans to enable clients to continue with activity.
ALX Commercials was established by director Darren Alexander in 2010 and has since grown into one of North Devon’s leading haulage repair centres. The business, which operates from a 1.5 acre site, five minutes away from the A361 North Devon Link Road, specialises in service, maintenance and bodywork for commercial vehicles.
The workshop offers routine service inspections to VOSA standards, its maintenance services including preparing and presenting lorries for MOT at the local VOSA test centre, diagnostic services, brake testing and both the construction and fabrication of vehicle body works.
Darren said: “We have built the business to a team of ten experiences staff, including mechanics, a driver and office support each contributing to our success to date and the increase in trade that we have experienced over the past six months. We are confident that we now have the resource in place to continue growing the business and attract clients UK-wide who require assistance whilst in this region.
“Our future plans for development include continued investment into the business through the expansion of the workshop and strategic staff training to ensure that we provide our clients with the most competitive and time efficient service in the North Devon area.”
