DAF Trucks has confirmed the appointment of the latest addition to its DAF Dealer network – DW Commercials in Dosthill near Tamworth. The family-run DAF service and parts location has full ADR and Pet. Reg. capability, and is strategically located close-by to one of the UK’s principal oil terminals at Kingsbury, thus providing DAF operators of hazardous goods with a one-stop-shop aftersales facility.
DW Commercials becomes the 17th DAF Dealer across the UK and Ireland to provide dedicated services for Pet. Reg. / ADR operators. While the appointment satisfies demand from hazardous goods operators in Staffordshire, further DAF Dealer points are strategically located at other primary oil refineries and distribution hubs at Warwick, Spalding, Manchester and Deeside.
The steady spread of DAF Trucks’ ADR / Pet. Reg. network follows increasing demand from major customers in the hazardous goods sector, including Tesco and Turners (Soham).
With a growing reputation, and an expanding customer base, DW Commercials commenced operations as a DAF Dealer on June 1st. The company had been a successful independent workshop in its own right since 2009, moving to their current site in 2012, and benefitting from support from local DAF Dealer, Greenhous DAF in Willenhall. Before that, husband and wife team, Daryl and Kate Winyard, started a mobile commercial vehicle service in 2006. Today, DW Commercials employs ten staff and boasts a five-bay workshop.
Following a 24-month upgrade programme, addtional facilities include a new office, full-length commercial vehicle bays, and attendant ADR / Pet. Reg. equipment, thus bringing the location up to full DAF Networks standards.
An official open day is planned for 30th July.
Dealer Principal Daryl Winyard said, “We’re a family-run business with a deep understanding of the local truck operating community. Now, with the backing of the market-leading DAF brand behind us, and with Pet. Reg and ADR expertise on-site, we can provide the very highest levels of aftersales suppport to hazardous goods operators.
“Although we have our own customer base, we have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Greenhous DAF,” he said, “which has helped us develop our reputation with the local DAF operating community.”
