Reading, United Kingdom, March 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Padworth, Anchor Vans, one of the leading vendors of used vans in the UK announces that they have been granted Ford approved service agent status. Becoming a Ford service agent means that, despite the doom and gloom about the recession, the Berkshire based used van vendor is actively recruiting Ford trained service technicians from the Reading area to be part of the growing team at the newly developed Padworth site. For more information call 0118 9710 230 or go to www.anchorvans.co.uk.
Simon Joyce, Sales Director of Anchor Vans said "Becoming a Ford approved service agent is a great addition to our range of used van services. But what makes me particularly excited is that our new status is bringing new jobs to the local area. We are very committed to the Reading and Padworth community, and in such difficult times, being able to bring employment into the area is a great bonus."
Becoming a Ford approved service agent is only one part of the Anchor Vans expansion at its Padworth site. Brand new offices and servicing workshops have recently been completed, bucking the recession trend. "I'm keen for people to hear some good news for a change," commented Simon. "We're going from strength to strength, taking new staff on when many companies in the automotive industry are laying them off. All I can say is that we're not in such a strong position by chance. We sell great quality used vans, we provide an excellent service, and now with the Ford approved status, it's the beginning of an exciting year for us."
