Scania Grand Opening in Inverness

It was a great pleasure to travel to Inverness to be present at the grand opening of the new Scania depot. The facilities in Inverness were most impressive and the staff was great.

The Scottish operators have been playing an important role in ensuring further Scania investment in Inverness. They also seem very keen on the performance of Scania’s legendary V8 engine! I am far from an expert on engines, but I have to say that the trucks are pretty impressive when you take a closer look.

Scania’s is one of Sweden’s largest and most successful companies, widely acknowledged as a leader, both in terms of vehicle design and environmental performance.

Scania is now in its 51st year in the United Kingdom and is a real success story. The company employs several thousand people in the UK and over 40,000 worldwide.
