Construction of Sytner’s Northampton JLR showroom completed

MCS Group has completed the construction of a new Jaguar Land Rover dealership for Guy Salmon, part of the Sytner Group, in Northampton.

The 65,700 sq ft dealership includes a new showroom, workshop, cosmetic bay and valet areas with external and roof deck parking. It is expected to open its doors next month.

The dealership is located at Swan valley Industrial Estate and follows a £12 million investment from the group.

The new “flagship” site follows the opening of Guy Salmon Jaguar Land Rover in Bristol at the start of 2021. Both sites meet the specifications of JLR’s Dual Arch Concept, which brings both brands together under one roof.

Nick Green, commercial manager at MCS Group, said: “The new Guy Salmon dealership at Swan Valley Industrial Estate is highly impressive and is expected to create more than 100 jobs for local people. It’s a project we are very proud of and I’d like to thank everyone involved in this major construction project.”

Construction of the Northampton dealership started in October 2019. It required an existing waterway to be diverted and the creation of a new culvert. A new maintenance road has also been provided for the canal authorities.

John Buchan, group project manager, of Sytner Group, said: “The MCS team have been tremendous to work with. Their outstanding attitude and commitment to this project is reflected in this fantastic facility that we are looking forward to opening in a few weeks time.”

Harwoods Group opened the doors to a newly-developed Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) premium car dealership in Brighton, earlier this month.

The AM100 car retail group’s JLR franchised operation completed its move from Lewes, into the new Dual Arch Concept facility on Crowhurst Road, Hollingbury.
