Group bodyshop for JCMG

John Clark Motor Group is to invest £285,000 in developing a new group bodyshop and parts distribution centre in Aberdeen.

Work on the 20,000 sq.ft. project - which will house a 20-bay workshop, a sales and service operation for VW commercial sales and a parts distribution centre - is expected to be completed late in October.

A section of the three-acre site will operate as a secure vehicle storage area for new and used cars - additional storage capacity will be made available to other motor dealers in Aberdeen.

The facility will also house a new pre-delivery inspection facility and a centralised vehicle preparation centre. Chairman and managing director John Clark said: “This is only one of a number of developments planned for this year. “Together, they represent a considerable commitment to the manufacturers that we represent, and our decision to embark on this programme demonstrates our confidence in the continuing growth of our business in Aberdeen.”

JCMG also plans to move its BMW dealership in Aberdeen to a new site in the city.

“We are restricted in our current position with the BMW dealership and it makes sense to move to bigger facilities,” said Mr Clark.

He added: “We are well down the road with our talks on finalising our plans and, ideally, we should be operational by the beginning of next year.”
