Northside prioritises investment in future of its employees with new partnership scheme.

Northside Truck & Van, a supplier of new and used Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles, has joined the Society as a Core Corporate Partner.

Provider of sales, service and repair of the complete Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle range, Northside is the largest dealer in the UK in terms of size and sales volume.

Keith Sims, Managing Director at Northside, said: “We have been partnering with businesses since the 1970s and we have spent over 50 years growing our network, which now spans all corners of Yorkshire; we have dealerships in Bradford, Doncaster, Leeds, Sandtoft, Sheffield, Hull and York and Immingham in North Lincolnshire. We also manage two vehicle management units in Dunstable and Pontefract.”

Northside will now have access to a 50% discount on individual membership application fees and a 10% discount on Engineering Council application fees for employees.  

“Since our beginnings we not only invested in buildings, but we also invested heavily in our staff, with many working their way up from apprentice to management level. We provide the highest quality of support to our employees to help them grow and develop in their chosen roles.”

Daniel Moir, SOE Chief Operating Officer, said: “We welcome Northside as another great addition to our partnership network and we look forward to working closely with them in the years ahead.”

By becoming a Corporate Partner, Northside will be able to promote its services to the Society’s 17,000 members by submitting articles and case studies for inclusion in SOE journals. 

“We treat each customer with respect and the knowledge that not every situation is the same, providing the very best service from the initial contact to keep them moving at all times, ensuring that any downtime is kept to an absolute minimum,” said Keith.

“Every member of the Northside team is an industry expert and a vehicle enthusiast. Whether you are working with sales, technical or support you are guaranteed to be in safe hands.”
