David Wright MP officially opened Arriva Midlands brand new Telford Depot, based at Unit F, Stafford Park 18, Stafford Park, Telford, TF3 3BN on Friday 25 May 2012.

Arriva Midlands has moved onto a 2.5 acre site and has invested over £400k in the site that houses its operations and engineering teams – a total of 168 employees and 63 buses.

We have invested in air conditioning units in areas that require it and also in a heat recovery ventilation system which provides intelligent heating, using a low energy heat exchanger to replace stale damp air with fresh, filtered and depending on outside temperatures, warmed air resulting in improved distribution of clean air and climate control.

In addition to this the engineering workshops provide a much improved working environment for our employees.

Later this year the new ATF Centre will be up and running to provide third party MOT vehicle testing, steam cleaning and vehicle washing.

Bob Hind, Regional Managing Director of Arriva Midlands said: “The bespoke layout and design of the new site satisfies operational needs, reduces carbon footprint and provides greater cost efficiency to accommodate the business in the 21st century. The new site gives us the opportunity to grow the business by developing our core commercial services, competitive tendering, acquisitions, and diversity. This is a great time for us to be moving up a gear.”
