A new garage depot has opened up in Newbury in one of ETB Autocentres’ biggest investments to date, who are already on the lookout for a centre manager and technicians to spearhead its offering to motorists in the town.
Over £70,000 has been spent on the state-of-the-art site in The Paddocks Trading Estate and with the paint barely dry on the premises, ETB Autocentres is now hoping to fill a number of automotive vacancies, starting with the centre manager position.
ETB Newbury is the network’s 37th depot to open and underlines its pledge to grow significantly in 2021, despite the ongoing challenges posed by COVID-19.
The centre will offer the full range of automotive services including MOTs, servicing, batteries, wheel balancing, brakes and all other mechanical repairs. Its investment in the latest Hunter wheel alignment equipment also makes it one of the most technologically advanced garages in the local area for this nature of work.
Meanwhile, a comprehensive range of tyres to suit the needs and budgets of all motorists is provided as standard, including Bridgestone and Firestone brands.
ETB’s marketing manager John Tear said: “We are extremely excited to be boasting a presence in Newbury in a brand new site in a prominent location in the town.
“When the premises became available, it was just too good an opportunity to turn down as we saw so much potential in the building – and the town of Newbury as a whole.
“It is a significant milestone for us to be in Berkshire for the first time and we look forward to building a strong reputation in the county like we have in the Midlands, Wales, Oxfordshire and the South West.
“We know that it has been a difficult time for the nation as a whole with the pandemic curtailing so much, but people will always need to get from A to B, whether it is a key worker or someone out shopping for essential items.
“In the short term, we have a number of positions to fill at the depot and once the full team is in place, then we can look forward to a sustained period of success in the town.”
Calls may be recorded for training and to ensure the best quality customer service.
