Yorkshire commercial vehicle firm expands business

Pudsey-based Vancare Ltd has invested £1.2m in its business, with the addition of a new workshop and plans to accelerate growth.

The purpose built workshop is the largest of its kind in Yorkshire at 15,000 sq ft, and was created to enable business owners Ryan Cocker and Keith Guthrie to create new jobs.

Based in West Yorkshire, the firm offers light commercial vehicle services and repair and employs eight technicians and five support staff.

Sales director, Mr Guthrie, indicated that growth was high on Vancare’s list of priorities, and their new premises will help them to expand.

He commented: “We operate mainly in West and South Yorkshire and across the north of England for major emergency repairs such as engines and gearboxes.

“Our turnover has grown from £200,000 in 2009 to £900,000 today and the new premises will enable us to grow the business further.

“The move to new premises has transformed our business and would not have beenpossible without the support from Yorkshire Bank which was prepared to finance anexpanding business in the current climate and came forward with the best proposition.”

Steve Roe, corporate banking director at Yorkshire Bank commented: “Vancare is a fast-growing business and we believe that this enterprise, which has a commitment to quality, service and value for money, can continue to expand even in challenging economic conditions.”
