Ian completes his Volvo Apprenticeship with Stuarts Truck and Bus Exeter
Ian Williams certainly has a lot to smile about this month! Not only will he enjoy celebrating his 24th birthday, but we’re very proud to announce that he’s also completed his Volvo Apprenticeship with Stuarts Truck and Bus Exeter.
At Stuarts Truck and Bus, we are pleased to be the West Country’s only authorised Volvo Truck and Bus dealer and repairer, providing the right vehicles to suit all your needs.
This family business began over 70 years ago with just one second hand truck and has steadily expanded since then. We have now been partners with Volvo for over 30 years and we offer our customers a full range of services, from supplying genuine Volvo parts to customised finance plans.
All of our services are carried out with Volvo’s core values of safety, great quality, and thought for the environment in mind – so much so that in 2018 we were thrilled to be crowned Volvo Trucks Dealer of the Year.
We care deeply about customer satisfaction, so delivering excellent quality and well trusted services throughout the West Country is highly important to us.
We’re proud to cover the whole of the South West Peninsula, having started out in Exeter but now running additional depots in Plymouth and Roche. Always looking to grow the business, our newest addition in Roche replaces our previous Redruth depot with a larger and better equipped site.
Quite the Achievement!
Ian started his apprenticeship with the company back in 2013. Since then he has proven himself to be a strong part of the team and a fantastic asset to the business. Here at Stuarts, we really pride ourselves on the great team we’ve built. Our people are vital for our business and we want them to keep working on their own self-development and improvement, so we work hard to encourage this.
It’s always a real pleasure to see our younger colleagues learning, succeeding, and thriving with the company. Ian has worked really hard and been a great member of the team throughout his apprenticeship – this month he definitely has some good reasons to celebrate!

South West-based Volvo trucks dealership, Stuarts Truck & Bus has opened a new Dealerpoint near Roche in Cornwall.
The recently redeveloped seven-acre site is adjacent to the main A30 expressway at Victoria Business Park and represents a six-figure investment for the company, which covers the entire Devon and Cornwall peninsula with their other established Volvo Dealerpoints in Exeter and Plymouth.
Stuarts Truck & Bus opened the Victoria Dealerpoint on 16th October 2017 when its former site in Redruth was closed.
The new facility offers greatly increased space and includes an eight bay, drive-through workshop neighbouring a fully stocked parts department.
An integral office block contains both the workshop and parts reception desks, in addition to a driver waiting area and welfare facilities.
Justin Fisher and Martin Williams, Sales Directors at Stuarts Truck & Bus, will provide new and used Volvo truck sales for the area.
“Our new Victoria site strengthens our commitment to existing and new Volvo truck and bus customers in Cornwall,” reports Ryan Stuart, Operations Director at Stuarts Truck & Bus, adding “We are scheduled to have an Authorised Testing facility (MOT) bay open soon and the feedback from the local community has been extremely positive. People are pleased to see investment in the Cornish economy.”
Depot manager, Chris Knowd heads up the team at Victoria Dealerpoint, which offers a full Volvo service facility that includes a tachograph centre, Volvo Action Service 24-hour breakdown cover and pre-MOT checking, including roller brake testing. The well-equipped workshop also includes two full length inspection pits and vehicle hoists.
“The new Victoria Dealerpoint offers us a much increased capacity in addition to a more convenient location. Most of our customer base will literally pass the door when using the A30. At present our opening hours are day-shift based, but our intention is to move to 7am to 11pm, Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings as soon as possible,” declares Ryan Stuart.
In 2004 Stuarts took over the Volvo Dealerships at Saltash and Redruth followed by the start of new and used Volvo truck sales in 2013, after decades of operating a service and repair franchise.
“Those additional properties and the start of truck sales really changed the way we did business,” recalls Ryan Stuart. “We are now pushing towards 30 per cent market share for Volvo Trucks in Devon and Cornwall and our goal is continue and grow our position as the strongest truck dealership representation in South West England.”
