Ex­pan­sion for Kia Mo­tors

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

CAR brand Kia Mo­tors is ex­pand­ing its of­fer­ing in Le­ices­ter­shire, fol­low­ing a deal led by East Mid­lands-based Nel­sons So­lic­i­tors.

Fam­ily-run fran­chise Kia Lough­bor­ough will be open­ing a sec­ond show­room due to the suc­cess of its site in Le­ices­ter Road, Mountsor­rel, where it has been based since 2003.

The Mountsor­rel branch will con­tinue to run in­de­pen­dently as a used car sales op­er­a­tion, while the new site in Lough­bor­ough – for­merly a Citroen deal­er­ship, which has a 300 sq m show­room and a work­shop with six bays – is ex­pected to fully open in Bel­ton Road in June af­ter ren­o­va­tions have taken place.

Riaz Dud­hia, head of Nel­sons’ com­mer­cial prop­erty depart­ment, led the deal, act­ing on be­half of the buy­ers and their in­vestors in pur­chas­ing the prop­erty.

He said: “Mul­ti­ple par­ties were in­volved in the deal, which made co-or­di­nat­ing and com­plet­ing the pur­chase to the de­sired timescale a chal­lenge. How­ever, with hard work and reg­u­lar com­mu­ni­ca­tion with our client, we were able to com­plete the pur­chase to all par­ties’ sat­is­fac­tion.”

Oli John­son, oper­a­tions di­rec­tor at Kia Lough­bor­ough, said: “Our new branch in Lough­bor­ough was pre­vi­ously a Citroen deal­er­ship, which closed at the end of 2017. It’s located be­tween Volk­swa­gen and Mercedes so it places us in good com­pany. We’re also re­ally happy to an­nounce that the move will be creating nu­mer­ous jobs in Lough­bor­ough too.”
