Work has commenced on Shelbourne Motors’ new £5m 50,000 sq ft multi-franchise facility on the Armagh Road in Newry, with local contractors O’Hare & McGovern carrying out the contract
The development will create 60 new jobs when it’s scheduled to open in summer 2019.
Shelbourne Motors have signed up Renault as a dedicated dealer of new and used Renault vehicles in the area, their second dealership to date after Kia was confirmed in June.
The new state-of-the-art facility, designed by Clarman Architects, is a significant investment by the family-owned vehicle retailer in the Newry area as it celebrates its 45th Anniversary.
It will include new car showrooms, new car handover bays, lounge-style waiting area with café and a drive-thru service centre with a 28-bay service workshop.
Caroline Willis, Financial Director of Shelbourne Motors, said; “This is a significant milestone for Shelbourne Motors. We are delighted to partner with one of Northern Ireland’s leading Contractors to carry out the building works on our largest ever single investment.”
