Evans Halshaw car dealers are planning to open a new distribution centre in Coventry. The brand new facility will stretch ten acres and will serve to take vehicles that have previously been leased and distribute them to Evans Halshaw branches throughout the UK.
In addition to de-fleeting cars, the new site will also have its own used car retail outlet with enough room for over 400 cars as well as a vehicle refurbishment workshop. Evans Halshaw is owned by Pendragon and the new Coventry distribution centre is part of the company’s plans to expand its operation and move into key markets in the UK where it currently has no used car sales presence.
Chief Executive of Evans Halshaw, Trevor Finn had the following to say –
“This is a huge forward step for our used car strategy and we are excited to get the Coventry distribution centre fully operational. The versatility of the site is exciting, as we can prepare thousands of cars before they are sold on in our Evans Halshaw Car Store centres. As announced in our 27 April 2017 IMS, we have made a strong start to 2017, and the distribution centre will ensure we build on the progress already made. Our interim results for the first half of 2017 will be released on 1 August 2017”.
