WORKSHOP CONSTRUCTION STARTS ON SITE

Work has started on the construction of a purpose-built specialist workshop for EPIC Media Group. The large purpose-built unit is capable of accommodating two large commercial/recycling vehicles with plenty of space to work on them. The new facility will have a controlled environment that provides the optimum conditions for fitting the graphics, electric vehicle charging points and an external hardstanding work area. In addition, there will be parking capacity for a fleet of vehicles within a gated property with CCTV and on-site security.

The construction phase will take approximately two weeks, with the facility due to be fully operational by the middle of February.

Kevin Murton, Managing Director of EPIC Media Group said: “It’s been a bit of a challenge getting this project to site given the current COVID situation, but we are delighted to finally see it taking form now. Our team of fitters are really looking forward to using the new facility.”

The workshop brings a number of benefits, including increased capacity due to reducing travel times, a reduced carbon footprint as well as offering a space for third party companies to come and fit their products to the vehicles. Space is often at a premium at vehicle manufacturing plants, so this facility will reduce the burden on the manufacturers while the trucks are being fitted out with the additional accessories.
