Motor expert the Sinclair Group has continued to expand its portfolio with the creation of a new £3.5 million showroom in Swansea.
The new Sinclair Volkswagen showroom – which creates around 60 new employment opportunities for the city – includes a dealership facility, workshop and offices. The facility is located on Langdon Road, next to existing Mercedes and Audi garages which have operated from the area since 2004.
Graven Construction Limited is the main contractor on the new showroom on Langdon Road, whilst James & Nicholas LLP, a multi-disciplinary consultancy practice based in Port Talbot, provided all project management, architectural and engineering consultancy design services.
The creation of the new showroom is a positive step forward for the Group, especially during the current times of economic uncertainty.
Sinclair Group Director, Jonathan Sinclair, commented:
“Regardless of the economic climate, the growth of the business globally determines what we do on a local level.”
Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) Spokesman, Jonathan Visscher, said:
“Projections are that vehicles made here are going to break all records, surpassing previous highs of the 1970s by producing two million cars a year by 2015.
“It is great to see investment being put into the regions, employing more people.”
Sinclair Volkswagen Swansea also includes the Group’s existing VW operation which relocates from Gorseinon to Swansea. Work began on the project in early 2013 and reached completion in June.
Brand Manager, Jeremy Phillips, said:
“For the past 36 years we have successfully built a strong Volkswagen business from this site.
“We continually review our services and facilities to ensure we provide a high level of service, so we felt the time was right to expand our offering.
“The spacious new interior will be more light and airy and will feature clean-cut lines and crisp colours to make it a more pleasurable customer experience, while supporting the brand’s new retail concept.
“The new showroom displays up to 17 different models as well as accommodates an improved hospitality and servicing area.
“We feel our investment confirms our commitment to motorists in Swansea and we believe the new showroom strengthens our customer service offering whilst providing an ideal setting to showcase our range of new and approved Volkswagen cars.”
As the largest and most successful motor group in Wales, the Sinclair Group showcases some of the most prolific new and approved used cars in the world.
