Car dealer expanding with 60 new jobs

One of the leading dealerships and garages in Swansea is planning on creating around 60 new jobs.

The Sinclair Group is hoping to build a new Volkswagen showroom with a workshop and offices on Langdon Road next to the company’s existing Mercedes and Audi garages which were established in 2004. The Mercedes and Audi garages already employ 120 people.

Director of the Sinclair Group, Jonathan Sinclair, confirmed that he was hoping that the VW dealership will be built and trading by the start of 2013.

He said: “Regardless of the economic climate, the growth of the business globally determines what we do on a local level.”

The new garage will involve re-locating the group’s existing VW operation in Gorseinon.

A Seat franchise was introduced at the Gorseinon Road dealership in January and there are plans for a second franchise to be introduced to the site.

A few of the staff will be transferred to Swansea while the majority will remain in Gorseinon.

Spokesman for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), Jonathan Visscher, said that the UK motor manufacturing market is currently very strong.

He said: “Projections are that vehicles made here are going to break all records, surpassing previous highs of the 1970s by producing two million cars a year by 2015.

“It is great to see investment being put in to the regions, employing more people.”
