TrustFord has opened its brand new PartsPlus Centre in Glasgow representing an investment of £700,000 and creating 30 new roles.
The new site is the fourth PartsPlus centre TrustFord has unveiled in the last two months following the recent openings of facilities in Tamworth, Carlisle, and Aberdeen, and marks a significant moment in the expansion of TrustFord’s PartsPlus network.
PartsPlus Centres provide services to support the sale of trade parts directly to franchise groups, independent repairers and body shops, offering extensive, competitively priced Ford, Motorcraft and Omnicraft parts, delivered with local business knowledge and expertise.
Stuart Foulds, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TrustFord, said:
“Our new PartsPlus Centre in Glasgow forms a key part of our network-wide investment in Ford of Britain’s wholesale parts initiative. The enhanced presence we now have here in Glasgow – in addition to our new sites in Carlisle and Aberdeen – provides us with the scale and resources to meet our customers’ parts needs in Scotland and the borders in ways we simply couldn’t before.
“At TrustFord, we’re committed to driving the standard in customer care. These new facilities will help our colleagues deliver the excellence and convenience of service they’re known for to a whole new set of customers.”
A third Scottish PartsPlus site is due to open in Dundee later this summer and will complete TrustFord’s strategic coverage of the central, southern, and north east areas of Scotland, delivering over £1m of parts every month to trade and wholesale customers. The investment in the three sites north of the border represents a total investment of over £1.5m in facilities and the creation of 54 jobs.
Kevin Magee, General Manager of PartsPlus Glasgow said:
“This new Parts Plus Centre will enable us to provide a truly excellent parts service to the Glasgow area and beyond. The space and capacity will allow our colleagues to deliver their very best.
“I’d like to thank colleagues who have worked hard to get the site ready to open and I look forward to working with them in the new space.”
