We have opened a new London depot to support plant hirers and contractors within and around the multi-billion pound Nine Elms project.
Greenshields JCB – one of the world’s largest JCB dealers has invested in a new parts and service depot to support customers working in and around one of the most ambitious development projects in the heart of London. The depot will further enhance our level of customer service and parts availability to all JCB customers inside the M25.
With completion planned in 2022, the Nine Elms development area covers 195 hectares along Central London’s South Bank. Offering 18,000 new homes plus a business district comprising of over 200 units, Nine Elms will create 22,000 jobs during the construction phase and 25,000 permanent jobs thereafter.
The new Greenshields JCB Battersea Nine Elms Depot, which opened on the 13th April, stands on a 3,000 square feet site at the Linford Street Business Estate in Battersea – conveniently located in the heart of the multi-billion pound development zone, south of the River Thames.
Greenshields JCB Managing Director George Greenshields said: “The new depot marks a significant investment and forms part of Greenshields JCB’s on-going growth strategy.
“The depot will make machine parts more accessible to customers inside the M25 ring and provide a more efficient and faster service response.
“We already have one depot inside the M25 in Barking. The addition of a second will boost the company’s ability to support customers and particularly those working on Nine Elms.
“We will stock a whole range of parts and equipment to meet requirements within the central London area. These can either be delivered locally and quickly or picked up from the conveniently located depot.”
To mark the new depot, a grand opening week has been staged, beginning Monday April 13th. This featured promotional offers, giveaways and competitions to win prizes such as iPads and JCB merchandise. VIP’s, key relevant media, potential and existing Greenshields JCB clients were in attendance.
