Phoenix expands machine sales site
4 July 2022
Phoenix Hire and Sales has opened a new 8,000 sq ft workshop facility at its dedicated machinery sales depot in Newport.
The company is Yanmar Compact Equipment’s official dealer for South Wales, Gloucestershire and Bristol and regards the new facility as an investment in its local community, with ambitions to double its workforce, appointing new specialist engineers and expanding its apprenticeship programme.
Jason Derraven, sales and marketing director at Phoenix, said: “Since being appointed to the Yanmar dealer network in August 2018, we have continued to expand our operations across Wales and the surrounding regions.
“In 2020, we invested more than £1.5 million in our dedicated hire division, which continues to experience huge demand, and in 2021 we opened our purpose-built sales depot in Newport.
“Expanding our Newport facility is an essential part of capitalising on continued business growth and growing market share across Wales and the surrounding areas.”
David Cockayne, UK & Ireland sales manager (south) at Yanmar Compact Equipment EMEA, added: “Since being appointed to the Yanmar dealer network, Phoenix Hire and Sales has achieved remarkable growth, with seven depots now operational across Wales.”
