Vertu Motors to build multi-million pound Nissan dealership in Glasgow

Vertu Motors is to invest £6 million to build a Nissan dealership in Glasgow.

The dealer group took over the Nissan franchise in Glasgow on April 1.

Forrester told Herald Scotland: “We will be investing in the next 12 months in a flagship site in Glasgow, on the site of the old DC Thomson printing works.

“We are currently in the process of demolishing the printing works, and we will be building a dealership right next to the M8 in the centre of Glasgow.

“It is a big investment for the group, and we will create quite a lot of jobs in the centre.”

Forrester told the Herald Scotland he hopes the new dealership (artist's impression below) will be ready within the next year with 50 staff employed at the new dealership.

Vertu has acquired a company based near Glasgow Airport called the Taxi Centre, a supplier of cars for the private hire market.

Forrester said that Vertu, which operates 10 Macklin Motors dealerships in Scotland, continues to have a “good pipeline” of acquisition opportunities.
