MOTORPOINT has opened a site in Sheffield – making it the independent vehicle retailer’s 12th car supermarket and expanding the group’s reach across South Yorkshire.
It marks the business’s fourth new site within the past 18 months, following last year’s launches in Castleford and Oldbury, as well as the opening of the Birtley branch in November 2015.
The 10-acre Sheffield Business Park site will have up to 500 nearly-new vehicles from more than 30 different manufacturers.
Chief executive Mark Carpenter said: ‘I am pleased that we have opened our 12th site in what has been a busy period for the group. Sheffield is a key demographic area and we are delighted to have generated 50 new jobs in the region.
‘The recent openings are performing well, and the management team is confident that this new site will be a further successful addition to the group’s portfolio as we deliver on our focused approach to new site openings to capture additional market share.’
The group will publish its final results for the year ended March 31, 2017 on June 12, 2017.
