MP opens new van centreNov 12, 2013
The aptly addressed site in Dawson Road is home to more than 1,000 vans and has undergone a major facelift after the Dawsongroup plc subsidiary bought the three-acre site in July.
Suppliers, staff and invited guests gathered in the rain to celebrate the opening.
Mr Stewart, who represents Milton Keynes South and is a member of the Transport Select Committee in Parliament, said: “As a local MP, it is always a pleasure to open a new business that is creating employment locally and will be a very valuable addition to the transport and distribution industry that is one of the high growth areas in Milton Keynes.”
Group managing director Steve Miller said that Dawsongroup has ambitious plans to grow in the van rental sector, one of the reasons why it has rebranded its former Hiregate Vehicle Rental operation as Dawsonrentals|vans.
Dawsonrentals already supplies trucks, trailers, buses, coaches and swepers to a range of clients. Mr Miller said that all van rental centres are to be rebranded by the end of the year.
