Customers offered ‘virtual’ tour of new Aberdeen vehicle showroom under development

FORD dealer group TrustFord has launched a visualisation of its new Aberdeen showroom, which is being developed by Knight Property Group ahead of an official opening next year.

The technology enables customers to take a 3D virtual 360-degree internal and external tour of the development.

Stuart Mustoe, acting chairman & chief executive and finance director at TrustFord, explained, “The visualisation of the future development perfectly showcases how we will offer a great space for customers to come and experience the full Ford car and commercial vehicle range, with Ford’s ‘Signature’ corporate identity.

“At TrustFord we’re always looking for ways to drive the standard in customer care and that’s why we’re investing across our network. The opening of our site in Aberdeen will be an important milestone for us and represents our desire to bring the TrustFord experience to more customers.”

The new showroom will be based on a five-acre site on the West Tullos Industrial estate and will create up to 90 jobs. The land was bought by Knight Property Group last February.

Howard Crawshaw, MD of Knight Property Group, added, “We are delighted to have concluded a long term arrangement on the West Tullos site, which underlines TrustFord’s long-term commitment to Aberdeen. The site has been cleared, planning consent is now secured and we are fully-committed to delivering the new car showroom, sales, servicing and storage facility for TrustFord.

“We expect to commence works on site in November, with completion scheduled during quarter four of 2023. The development is in a prime location with great visibility and we truly believe that upon completion it will deliver a facility that TrustFord can be proud of.”
