As a company we need little introduction, Scania is a major supplier of Trucks, Buses, Coaches and engines for Industrial and Marine applications. The company provides a wide range of services to support our products and customers.
We are a premium supplier of trucks to the heavy haulage industry with one in five new HGV’s in the UK being a Scania (market share 19.5% 2015). If you are ever in need of assistance whilst out at sea it is probably a lifeboat powered by one of our marine engines that will come to your rescue and if you are at a major event (e.g. concert) it is likely the lights will be kept on by a generator powered by a Scania industrial engine. On an executive coach journey? You could well be on a Scania coach. To support our customers there are 90 dealers across the country employing over 3,000 people. This year Scania in Sweden is celebrating being in business for 125 years.
Scania also has its own UK finance provider, Scania Finance Great Britain Limited. This company’s team of in house industry specialists provide support to the UK Scania dealer network to ensure operators are able to acquire their vehicles in the most cost effective manner in every case.

Working with Job Centres across the UK we help these people have a better life for themselves and their families, this is something we are especially proud of.
Our training fleet of over 20 articulated and rigid trucks is modern with all the mod cons to help our customers through their learning and on to a successful outcome during their test.
