ADL invests in Irish aftermarket support
Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL) has appointed Gerry Lynch as Regional Service Manager for Ireland. The development continues the investment in aftermarket facilities and support for Irish customers made by the manufacturer and its local service partner, Ardee Coach Trim.
Dublin-based Gerry Lynch will be the go-to point of contact for bus and coach operators across the island of Ireland. He is to provide aftersales support to customers and the team of eight field service engineers at Ardee Coach Trim, ADL’s service partner which is supporting all ADL bus and Plaxton products.
Ardee Coach Trim has recently completed a new four-bay workshop at its main site in Co. Louth. The new facility is utilised for pre-delivery inspections of ADL vehicles entering Ireland and is staffed by a dedicated team of four. In southwest Ireland, Ardee Coach Trim has opened a new workshop in Ennis, Co. Clare, located on the busy Cork–Limerick–Galway corridor, ideally placed to support Bus Éireann fleets as well as retail coach and bus customers.
ADL has also brought a 4,500 additional square foot of spare parts warehouse capacity into use in Greater Dublin, increasing local stock availability and shortening delivery times to customers across the island.
Ciaran Lennon, Ardee Coach Trim Director, said: “Complementary to our field service engineers, Ardee Coach Trim have invested in infrastructure including background management staff, manned store facilities, a main workshop facility in Ardee and our newly added southwestern hub in Ennis, plus the service capability for vehicle transportation.”
