On Thursday 6th June Lloyd Ltd held the official opening event for its impressive new premises on Eden Business Park in Penrith. Although the move to the new building had taken place in April, this was an excellent opportunity for customers and other local people to see the new venue for themselves and enjoy some celebratory hospitality. Consequently over 450 people came throughout the day and well into the evening to get a tour of the building and to take advantage of the presence of many of the manufacturers Lloyd Ltd represents who had special offers just for the day.
“The move to the new site has been many years in the making so we are delighted that so many of our valued customers and suppliers were able to come and share in this significant development for our business”, said Simon Miller, Group Director and Dealer Principal of Lloyd Ltd Penrith. “We outgrew our old Myers Lane building a long time ago so our customers were clearly impressed by our new site and the facilities we have to offer. It shows Lloyd Ltd’s continued investment in our business and in the local rural community. Thank you to everyone who came to support us.”
As Lloyd Ltd is one of the largest UK dealers for New Holland there were several representatives from the Basildon-based brand also on hand to support the event, including Pat Smith, New Holland’s Business Director UK & ROI. He took the opportunity to present Lloyd Ltd’s senior management team with the Dealer Standards Award, a reflection of Lloyd Ltd’s commitment to New Holland and the second award the company has received from them this year, having been named “Tractor Dealer of the Year 2018” in February.
“We are proud to represent New Holland and they are a significant part of our business operations so to have our focus on delivering the levels of service and other dealer standards recognised is a great achievement”, said Barry Lloyd, Lloyd Ltd’s Managing Director. “Being told of this award on the same day as holding such a successful opening event for our new branch was really the icing on the cake. We look forward to continuing to support our customers and supplier partners so effectively from our impressive new premises.”
