Welsh dealers partner up to acquire land and build new dealerships

Welsh dealers Griffin Mill and Hutchings have acquired 85,250 sq ft unit on five acres of land to create three new car sales showrooms ready for the September plate-change.

Griffin Mill will open a new Nissan dealership as well as relocate its Skoda dealership. Hutchings will open a new Hyundai franchise.

The businesses expect the new development to create 30 new jobs across the three sites over the next 18 months.

Griffin Mill and Hutchings created a joint venture called Blog Properties to lease and manage 45,000sq ft of surplus accommodation at the site.

Anthony Griffin, managing director of Griffin Mill. said: “The premises at Treforest are good quality, ex-WDA, with a big open space which is easily adaptable for car showroom purposes. 

“There is plenty of room for parking and storage, and it fronts onto a busy road. Its proximity to our head office, just half a mile away is ideal.”

John Hutchings, chairman of Hutchings and partner in Blog Properties said: “We are excited about the prospects for the project and the combined service offering the two businesses will provide.

“This is a significant investment between the two parties at a time of economic difficulty and we are delighted that we will be providing new jobs in the area.”
