MAN Truck & Bus UK is investing in a new dealership in Gateshead in north east England.

Construction work is under way on a 3.3 acre site in Team Valley which will host a new state-of-the-art dealership and maintenance facility which will provide support for the complete range of MAN vans, trucks, buses and coaches.

Mitch Barnes, network business development manager, MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd, said: ‘MAN has operated a dealership in Gateshead for nearly a quarter of a century, since 1996, and throughout this time we’ve both sold vehicles to and supported our customers from our existing facility in Earlsway. However, as our business footprint has grown across both the Tyne Valley and the surrounding area so has our requirement for a larger site.
