Following the successful delivery of its 2013 business growth strategy within the first quarter of this year, Chamber member Northgate Vehicle Hire, has returned to Huddersfield to launch a new depot on Red Doles Lane.
Formerly a Northgate Vehicle Sales outlet, the site’s redevelopment will see Northgate introduce its flexible vehicle hire solutions to Huddersfield in a bid to meet the demand for a national commercial fleet provider within the area.
Situated in the heart of Huddersfield’s Leeds Road Business Trade Park on the prominent Red Doles Lane, the new depot is expected to bring 10 new jobs to the area. The depot launch forms part of Northgate’s 2013 plans to expand and provide efficient and effective fleet solutions that meet the needs of local businesses throughout the UK.
The new depot features a range of services to help the growing fleet size in the area and will house up to 45 vehicles at any one time. Following a successful launch year, Northgate intends to invest in workshop facilities, creating a further eight full time jobs from the third year of operation onwards.
Andrea Cowburn, Area Operations Manager for Northgate Vehicle Hire, commented:
"Huddersfield has a strong business heritage which remains buoyant to this day, and with that comes the need for a national flexible vehicle hire provider with the resource to fully service the varying demands of local businesses. Through the launch of our Huddersfield depot we intend to meet those needs."
She continued: "The area has a strong manufacturing heritage and, as a result, a significant number of businesses in the area fall into this industry sector. Construction, wholesale and retail trade are also prominent industries for Huddersfield - industry sectors that Northgate has a wealth of experience in dealing with, making our competitive packages all the more appealing and relevant for local business owners. We are confident that this, paired with our impressive new facilities, will aid in our continued success this year."
The Huddersfield depot will also feature contemporary and comfortable waiting areas for customers, with designated hire desk staff and access to the latest fuel-efficient vehicles. In addition to the opening deals on offer to local businesses, such as commercial vehicle hire packages starting from £55 per week, the recent introduction of Northgate’s retail hire offering allows the general public to benefit from extremely competitive daily hire rates on both cars and vans.
