Posted by admin | July 5th, 2012 | 0 Comments
Audi South Africa is proud to announce the construction of the first Terminal concept in Pietermaritzburg.
The dealership will continue to be located on 8 Armitage Road with direct access to the N3 highway as well as being directly opposite the bustling Midlands Mall. Audi Centre Pietermartizburg has been demolished and will be reconstructed.
This state-of-the-art dealership will be approximately 1 500 square metres which is four times larger than the original dealership. The new facility will have the capacity of displaying 13 new vehicles. The following disciplines will be offered; new vehicle sales, pre-owned vehicle sales, vehicles service and parts supply.
Design of the new terminal employs “green” technologies that compliment the inherent efficiencies that the Audi brand represents; these include rainwater harvesting for the wash bay, sensor lighting and air-conditioning as well as utilising energy efficient glass for all shop fronts.
“The previous dealership was built in 2004 and due to the growth of the Audi Brand the investment in the new dealership is justified.” Said Mr Ryan Delaney, Dealer Principal: Audi Centre Pietermaritzburg, “Audi Centre Pietermaritzburg is a single point serving the provincial capital of KZN. This investment will ensure that the new Audi Terminal sets new standards for premium brands in the area. We will ensure the Audi Brand grows within our region. Once the dealership is fully operational there will be 20 additional jobs created as a result of the expansion.”
Construction of the new Audi centre will commence during July 2012 and will be completed by the fourth quarter of 2012. The total cost of the investment is estimated at R20 million. The dealership will be owned by the Barloworld Motor Group.
Transformation of the Audi network commenced in March 2010 with the opening of Audi Centre Hatfield being the first Audi Terminal on the African continent. Since then Audi terminals have opened in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
