A car dealer has invested more than £5million in a state-of-the-art Vauxhall Brand Centre for Milton Keynes.
Vauxhall dealer Thurlow Nunn expects to create more than 50 jobs when the centre at Towergate, off Groveway in Wavendon opens in January 2014.
Work on the new site is expected to start in spring this year.
The branch will be built to the new Vauxhall Delta plan, designed by architect Bisset Adams, and will include 20 workshop bays, two MOT bays, a 13-car showroom, space to display 92 used cars, 163 customer parking spaces and a covered customer handover bay.
Simon Bottomley, chairman and group managing director of Thurlow Nunn, said: “I, along with the Thurlow Nunn executive board, have been working on this new development for some time and we are delighted to be in a position to let our customers know about this exciting proposition for our company.”
Established in 1885, Thurlow Nunn has had a relationship with Vauxhall for over 30 years and is now one of the largest family-owned Vauxhall franchises in the UK, with 10 sites across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
The development marks the group’s first Vauxhall venture into the south east. It has other sites in Beccles, Diss, East Dereham, Fakenham, Great Yarmouth, Holt, King’s Lynn and Wisbech.
