Hendy Automotive to open Car Store business in Dorset

Hendy Automotive is set to open a Car Store in Ferndown, Dorset in early 2019.

Planning for the facility has been granted and construction work will start in the next few weeks.

The Car Store will have space to showcase around 200 vehicles and there will be sales suite and on site car parking.

The Car Store opening is part of the company’s overall expansion plans and will replicate a similar operation in Exeter, which also serves as a MG franchise.

Hendy chief executive Paul Hendy (pictured), said: “We have a long association with Dorset and have had a number of outlets in the county in the past so we are thrilled that planning has been granted for this new facility,” he said.

“We will be creating new jobs, transforming a derelict site and providing car buyers in Dorset with the high quality they have come to expect from the Hendy Group.”

“Our award-winning Car Store concept is based on offering the best choice of cars at the most competitive prices without compromising on the customer experience,” added Paul.

The group currently has 12 franchises in 25 locations and employs more than 1,000 people in Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Devon.

Last year Hendy sold 38,900 and serviced and repaired more than 235,000 vehicles. The group is rated 28 in the Motor Trader Top 200 Dealer Groups with estimated annual turnover of £514.4m.
