The UK is home to a number of automotive showrooms catering for every make you can imagine. There are many noteworthy ones that strive to offer a high quality service to customers in order to encourage them to make a purchase. The newest of these can be found in Poole.
Ocean Automotive was fourteen months in the making. With the grand opening in July the £14.5 million 65,000 sq ft showroom became the largest Audi centre in the UK. The new facility is less than a mile from the former site but marks huge growth in the business. The new building is almost four times the size of the original. It has space for 24 vehicles to be displayed prominently indoors as well as a 24 bay workshop, two MOT zones and vehicle valet and repair facilities.
The new showroom has a number of fantastic facilities for customers to use whilst they are waiting too. They can visit the onsite gym or enjoy a complimentary treatment at the beauty salon. Not many other showrooms go this far to ensure customers have a fantastic experience.
The grand opening of the facility was a huge event and included a number of special guests. Three times Le Mans winner Allan McNish was there, celebrating the motorsport heritage of Audi. All of the guests were also delighted by a special performance from Beverley Knight MBE.
Ocean Automotive created 20 additional automotive jobs at their new site, taking the total workforce to 110. These roles are diverse, including positions in sales, hosting, finance, parts and servicing too. The entire team is taking in a three week initiation period before doors open to customers so they can familiarise themselves with the new property and the cutting edge systems in place.
