Andrew Hucoop quotes: “It’s taken a lot of time and planning but we finally have a spade in the ground. As you can see from the artist’s impression the facility promises to be stunning. Four stories high and designed especially to provide an environment where our customers can explore the BMW, MINI and Motorrad ranges with ease and in comfortable surroundings. Located off Grovefield Way in Cheltenham, close to the A40, we’ll be easy to find and convenient for our existing customers. And there will be generous customer parking. Should all go to plan, we hope to be welcoming customers in around 12 months."
Kevin Davidson quotes "This will be a flagship site for the BMW Group, displaying as it will a very large number of our new BMW and MINI vehicles and products, as well as our BMW Motorrad motorcycles. The local planning officials wanted us to create a landmark site between Gloucester and Cheltenham, and if you look at the designs, I’m sure you will agree that this has been achieved in full measure. Outside of the Greater London area, this will be one of the largest BMW and MINI Centres in the UK. We are delighted that, together with our valued franchise partners the Cotswold Group, we have been able to establish a single efficient site to cater for our Customers in the wider Cheltenham and Gloucester area. I would invite people to come to the new facility as soon as it is opened, to enjoy not only our products, but the whole experience – we support Cotswold in making this a destination site to enjoy. Cotswold are one of the Leaders in enhancing the retail experience within the automotive world and this new site will allow them to showcase some excellent processes."
