Luxury car group invests £30m in new ‘supersite’
H.R. Owen, a luxury automotive dealer group, has begun construction on a new £30 million multi-brand site in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
Bringing together new Lamborghini, Bentley and Maserati showrooms, it’s H.R. Owen’s latest UK investment and a major part of the brand’s expansion plans. A total of five showrooms will be built within the new Hatfield site.
Expected to be completed and operational in Q3 2022, the new statement site will not only eventually include five new showrooms but also three new state-of-the-art aftersales facilities.
In total, the site measures 110,000 sq ft, housing not only the sales and aftersales staff of the showrooms, but also a number of H.R. Owen HQ staff.
Ken Choo, H.R. Owen CEO, said: “Since H.R. Owen was founded in 1932 with just a single Bentley and Rolls-Royce showroom the brand has continued to expand on its exemplary reputation for the finest cars and customer service.
“The latest stage in this expansion first began in 2013 with the takeover by the Berjaya Group, and will enter its next phase with the construction of this flagship site in Hatfield; bringing to life the vision of our chairman, Vincent Tan.
“In recent years, we have invested millions in our sales and aftersales operations and in 2021, in the midst of a lot of uncertainty, we’re showing our commitment to the UK and to our customers, not just with the development at Hatfield, but with a new global flagship Rolls-Royce showroom in Mayfair and an all-new Bentley showroom in Surrey.”
