The fifth-generation Treforest based Hutchings Motor Group, have recently opened their brand new state-of-the-art Hyundai dealership in Swansea. The £2.5m development opened last week in time for the firm to gear up for the seasonal September car registration plate change.
Group Managing Director, Stephen Hutchings explained: “Following five years of successful partnership with Hyundai, we are delighted to announce the August opening of this prestigious new dealership, with the finishing touches now being completed on what will be the most significant dealership opening for the Hyundai brand this year.
“We are very confident in the potential of the Swansea market to justify this £2.5m investment for the continued growth of Hutchings Motor Group with Hyundai. We are particularly delighted to have secured such a prominent and well placed location at the end of Valley Way on the Enterprise Park in Llansamlet.
“All our existing Swansea-based staff colleagues are looking forward immensely to moving into the new site from our current Carmarthen Road location. We plan to further increase our staff numbers as the business expands.”
John Hutchings, Chairman of Hutchings added, “From the start of this project we committed to ensuring that the main consultants, engineers and contractors involved in its construction would be Swansea-based, ensuring that the whole investment would feed into the local economy.
“Future-proofing the facilities in the new premises was also a major priority, allowing for sufficient additional internal and external expansion space. Renewable energy featured strongly in the design brief including a substantial roof mounted photovoltaic installation which will provide a significant proportion of our electricity requirement and a sophisticated rain-water harvesting system will provide our own self sufficient water supply.
Hutchings Motor Group employs over 100 staff and have other Hyundai dealerships in Bridgend and Pontypridd in addition to their long established Vauxhall business at their North Cardiff location.
