ABOUT MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES
Girteka maintains and repairs its own trucks. We follow the strategy of 80/20: 80 % of all repair work is performed in-house, and the remaining 20% are repaired at our partners’ maintenance services. We have more than 9,000 trucks and this number is constantly growing, thus the network and capacity of internal services are also growing.
With regard to the park management module – to have equipment not older than 3 years – the sales figures of the equipment are growing every year, therefore a great emphasis is placed on the development of the body department.
THE LARGEST EXPANSION IS IN POLAND
To be the first obvious choice for our clients, we have opened a new, largest transport base in the history of our company in Poland. We are located in the former MAN factory, which covers an area of 20,000 square meters. By the end of 2022, we intend to employ more than 400 employees in the new base, mostly truck drivers, as well as intensively looking for employees in various fields and specialists in the field of administration, especially finance and personnel. It is planned that Girteka will invest more than five million Euros in the activities of the new base over the next five years.
