The facility, located on a 5.2-acre site at the former Tyseal base within the West Tullos Industrial Estate, was built by MTM Construction, who were the main contractor.
Valued at £10 million, this turnkey development spans 27,976 sq ft and includes 270 customer and display parking spaces, along with a 2 acre car storage compound to the rear.
The project has been successfully handed over to TrustFord for fit-out and is poised to open its doors in March 2024. This strategically located facility will offer new and used vehicle sales, fleet sales and servicing needs for Aberdeen and the broader North East region.
A noteworthy aspect of this development is its commitment to environmental sustainability, achieving an EPC ‘A’ rating. The 20-year pre-let agreement emphasises TrustFord’s commitment to the Granite City following a couple of years at a temporary location while the new site was being developed.
Expected to generate approximately over 50 jobs, this TrustFord dealership will boast an inventory of around 300 new and used cars, along with commercial Ford vehicles.
Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group, said:
“The establishment of TrustFord’s Scottish dealership in Aberdeen marks a transformative development for West Tullos. The completion of this high-quality, sustainable development underlines our commitment to providing TrustFord with an exceptional facility.
“Securing a 20-year pre-let arrangement highlights TrustFord’s commitment to Aberdeen. This new facility is a visually striking addition to the area, reflecting the excellence associated with TrustFord’s brand.”
Stuart Mustoe, TrustFord chief executive, said:
“We are all hugely excited about our new site in Aberdeen and look forward to opening our doors in early March. Our investment in this outstanding build reflects our commitment to sustainable properties along with our commitment to offer an outstanding customer experience. Our existing Aberdeen team has been expanded in recent weeks to meet the anticipated demand and we all look forward to offering our customers an outstanding experience – whether they are looking for a new vehicle, a service, advice about their fleet or just coming to have a look before buying, the team will be delighted to welcome them.”
