Neil opened a state of the art 20,000 square foot extension to Trucksmith's van production factory in Uffculme.
Trucksmith is celebrating its 30th year of production this year. The extension expands factory space to more than 64,000 square feet and will allow the company to produce up to 25 low-floored Luton vans per week.
The new facilities will also allow a greater focus into research and development for new manufacturing technologies. Trucksmith is a growing business and has increased its number of employees by 33% in the last year to just under 100. Neil was delighted to visit the business and praised Trucksmith for its success.
"It was a great pleasure to visit Trucksmith. The facilities are truly state of the art and it's a fantastic example of a growing business in our corner of Devon."
"A big congratulations to all the staff at Trucksmith who helped make this new extension a reality and I hope the company continues to go from strength to strength."
