Western Commercial to halt HGV sales

Mercedes-Benz Trucks dealership Western Commercial will no longer sell HGVs from 6 December 2021 due to the investment needed to continue the service.
In a letter to customers, the company – which has sites in Bellshill, Glasgow, Broxburn and Dundee – said it was no longer sustainable to keep the truck business going.
The letter said: “We have reached a stage where for us to take the business further, meet your expectations, satisfy the requirements of the manufacturer and fully engage with the incoming generation of e-trucks, we would be required to make substantial investments in all key areas.
“Having reviewed these requirements at length, we had to accept that the investments required are not sustainable and we have therefore given notice to Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd. Our truck sales franchise agreement will end on 6th December 2021.”
Western Commercial said it would continue after this date with its truck aftersales operations across all its sites.
