Anchor Vans prepares to expand Reading base

Van hypermarket Anchor Vans is preparing to double in size by developing a new 2.5-acre site next to its base on the A4 near Reading.

The business’ proposed regeneration of a landfill site at Padworth will reduce its carbon footprint by finding a permanent onsite home for its valeting services. 

Managing director, Simon Joyce, said: “We are always looking for ways to reduce our impact on the local community and the environment.

“This exciting new project will reduce the number of vehicle movements between sites by approximately 120 journeys a week.” 

For 28 years Anchor Vans has delivered new and used vehicles to as far as Edinburgh and the Channel Islands.

It buys in excess of 60 vans a week. The new site would also mean that its vehicle suppliers could unload away from the busy A4.

Anchor Vans has been planning on expansion for more than 10 years.
