Greenshields JCB is delighted to announce that its new Braintree depot is officially open for business.
Located just a few 100 metres from our existing site, the new facility at 9 & 10 Cooper Drive, will enable Greenshields to provide even greater service to customers across the key Essex region.
At 13,640 sq ft, the new depot offers twice the space of the existing one – allowing Greenshields JCB to significantly enhance its on-site offering in Braintree. Key benefits include a huge increase in the workshop and warehousing space available and the introduction of a JCB Access Hub to highlight the new range of powered access equipment.
The new Braintree depot marks the latest in a series of significant, customer-focused investments by Greenshields JCB across its network. It follows the installation of an overhead crane at the Hemel Hempstead depot and the major renewal of the service van fleet – with 36 new vehicles already purchased this year alone.
Greenshields JCB Managing Director, James Richardson said: “This significant investment represents a continued focus on the development of the business and signals the company’s long-term commitment to growth in the Essex market.
“Enhanced customer service is at the forefront of every decision and this move – in conjunction with the renewal of our van fleet and improved infrastructure across our network – clearly demonstrates that.
“With double the storage space and four additional work bays we can deliver even greater parts availability and faster repair times. The installation of an 8-tonne overhead crane brings greater workshop efficiency and sets up the team at Braintree to easily support the game-changing new JCB X-SERIES excavator range and we can now truly showcase the benefits of JCB Access equipment to major customers in Essex and beyond.
“The investment sees us perfectly placed for future expansion and helps our customers in this crucial territory deliver their ongoing projects and to capitalise on potential opportunities such as those presented by the planned investment in the Stansted area.”
Customer events are scheduled throughout October enabling new and existing customers to visit the facility and see the extensive JCB range of plant and equipment. To arrange a visit or talk to our Braintree team, please call 01376 550246.
