Macklin Motors Plans to Construct Nissan Dealership in Glasgow, Scotland

Vertu Motors plc has announced that Macklin Motors has revealed plans to invest GBP 6 million to construct a purpose built Nissan dealership in Glasgow, Scotland. The new bespoke dealership complements Macklin Motors' existing Nissan sites in the city and will serve to strengthen the bond between Macklin Motors parent company, Vertu Motors plc, which has eleven Nissan sites throughout the UK, and the Japanese car manufacturer. Work is already underway at the former site of publisher DC Thompson's print works as the building is demolished to make room for the new Nissan showroom. Once the demolition is complete, construction on the unique three-storey building with eight-storey glass tower can begin in earnest. The layout will include a new car showroom at a raised level and used car sales at a lower level alongside a multistorey car park for vehicle storage. When the construction of the site is complete in mid-2016, it will be a one-stop shop for all things Nissan, with Macklin Motors' different offerings divided across the floors, including a wide range of fleet and commercial vehicles and an official Nissan High Performance Centre, which will sell luxury vehicles such as the Nissan GT-R. The site will also include an MOT and service centre meaning everything a customer will ever need, from purchase through to service and MOT, will be available in one central location. The dealership, which will be known as Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central, will create around 35 further jobs, including several apprenticeship opportunities in the service and sales departments.
