Marshall confirms expansion plans for Mercedes truck business

Marshall Confirms Expansion Plans For Mercedes Truck BusinessMarshall Motor Group has confirmed its intention to grow the Mercedes-Benz Pentagon Commercials truck and van business it now owns as part of its 107m acquisition in May of Ridgeway Group[1].

The business operates four sites in the south of England in Southampton, Poole, Fareham and Andover. This is Marshall s only truck operation. As part of the growth plan Marshall will build a bigger, truck-focused dealership on Southampton s Nursling Industrial Estate which will include a seven-bay workshop with an authorised testing facility lane for truck MoTs. Marshall is also planning to open a dedicated Mercedes van showroom and service centre elsewhere in the city.

As a business which is best-known as a car and light commercial vehicle retailer, we are particularly excited to be extending our portfolio by adding sales of Mercedes-Benz Trucks, said Marshall CEO Daksh Gupta (pictured with Pentagon s management team).

Like Mercedes-Benz Vans, it s a great brand with brilliant products, which offer the combination of highly competitive whole life operating costs, all-important driver appeal and fast, efficient back-up that customers are looking for.

A truck is a business purchase rather than a discretionary one, and requires a high degree of after sales support. This is an area we have identified as offering significant potential for growth at Pentagon.
