The UK roll-out of Infiniti, the Japanese performance automotive brand, is gathering pace with the opening of Infiniti Centre Glasgow, the country’s fourth centre and the first in Scotland.
The new showroom joins centres in central London, Reading and Birmingham.
The centre is operated by Infiniti retail partner MPA which also operates the recently opened Infiniti Centre Birmingham and has two more centres under construction, in Stockport and Leeds and both due to open in 2011.
Jason Blane, former manager of a Scottish Toyota centre, has been appointed to run Infiniti Centre Glasgow.
Blane, who has worked in the Scottish retail car industry for 14 years, is additionally responsible for all Infiniti sales throughout Scotland.
Corporate sales specialist Steve Boland is appointed sales and development consultant at the Glasgow Centre.
MPA is looking at adding further centres in south and east London, Cambridge, Bristol, Newcastle and Nottingham.
Infiniti’s other retail partner, Rymco UK, already operates showrooms in Reading, Berkshire, and at 77 Piccadilly, and plans to open two more – in Chiswick and Hatfield – in 2011.
