Ford & Slater opens new Birtley dealership site


Ford & Slater has opened a new state-of-the-art 2.5-acre facility in Birtley with five workshop bays.

The new site will operate 24 hours a day from Monday 7 a.m. to Saturday 7.30 p.m., as well as an opening on Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.

A total of 19 trained DAF technicians will work at the site which also has a tachograph calibration center and will hold up to £800,000 in parts stock.

Genuine DAF parts and TRP all brand truck and trailer parts will be delivered free of charge anywhere in the North East.

Huw Teasdale, Regional Manager at Ford & Slater, said, “We look forward to starting working with and supporting customers throughout the North East. We have a fantastic team here ready to deliver the levels of quality and service that the Ford & Slater name is synonymous with throughout the transportation industry.”

The opening of Birtley brings the number of Ford & Slater sites in the UK to 13, following the opening of the new Chesterfield site in January 2022.

Ford and Slater Joint-MD, Tim Strevens, added: “We have a long and proud history of representing the DAF brand and we are delighted to further expand our network. I am incredibly proud of the entire team involved in bringing Ford & Slater Birtley to fruition and we look forward to opening our doors to existing and new customers in the area.
