Motordepot continues expansion and creates jobs as it buys ninth site

Time 3 years ago

CAR supermarket group Motordepot is to open a branch in Sheffield – its ninth site and the fourth to be launched within the past 12 months.

A major refurbishment programme costing in the region of £500,000 will take place at the three-acre site in Handsworth Road over the next few months, with the official opening expected in the autumn.

A spokesman told Car Dealer Magazine that its design style would follow that of the recently opened Barnsley site, pictured, although the building would be smaller.

It will offer more than 300 used vehicles on display, with access to a further 3,000 vehicles in group stock, and Motordepot anticipates that up to 30 jobs will be created in the area.

Managing director Steve Butterley said: ‘Demographically, Sheffield is a really good fit for us. The new branch will complement our nearby sites in Barnsley and Worksop, assisting to increase our market share in the area.

‘Our recent branch openings are performing very well, and our new teams have really bought into our culture of providing the best customer experience we can in an open, relaxed and ethical way.’

To speed up further expansion, Motordepot recently opened a four-acre vehicle preparation centre in Goole, East Yorkshire, creating 100 jobs.
