Bristol Street Motors Ford Bolton is poised to develop a £3m FordStore showroom as part of a rebuild of its existing facility in the town.
Parent company Vertu Motors plc will make Bristol Street Motors the only retailer of the premium Ford Vignale range and the Ford Mustang in the region when the new facility opens next summer.
General manager, Darren Murray, said: “It is a real honour to be selected as a FordStore and offer customers the full range of Ford products and services, including the premium vehicles.
“The significant investment will completely transform the dealership.”
The transformation of the Higher Bridge dealership into a FordStore will include the demolition of the existing showroom and the construction of a state-of-the art dealership, including a bespoke Vignale lounge with the latest technology to assist customers to choose and customise their new car.
The Light Commercial Vehicle showroom will also be demolished and rebuilt with the workshops being extended to include additional vehicle ramps, commercial vehicle ramps, and a further MOT lane.
The Approved Used vehicle space will be relocated and expanded offering customers easy access and a wider choice and the customer parking area will also be increased to support the dealership’s growing customer base.
A new wash and valet bay will complete the renovation, while insulated roof covering and exterior cladding and showroom glazing will be utilised to increase the energy efficiency of the buildings and reduce their environmental impact.
