Last month Armstong’s opened up it’s progressive Ti Rakau Drive facility, purpose-built for all Peugeot, Citroen and Nissan requirements.
The advanced dealership is one of three in New Zealand that can offer their impressive list of services – one of the others being Armstrong’s AutoBody.
“It is a specialised panel and paint restoration workshop which is able to cater for the unique needs and requirements of EV and PHEV vehicles, as well as restore damaged alloy wheels,” said Aaron Hodge, General Manager of Armstrong’s Autobody.
“One of the considerations associated with modern vehicles is their light-weight construction and the type of materials used to manufacture them, so it’s vitally important to ensure that they are looked after with the utmost care to ensure they are repaired in accordance with stringent specification levels.”
The Botany dealership is an essential step in Armstrong’s growth strategy and is a forerunner to other expansion plans. The goal is ideally to represent multiple brands across a significant number of sites throughout New Zealand.
“There’s something quite exciting about building a dealership from the ground up, there’s a huge amount of work involved but when everything falls in place it’s incredibly satisfying,” said Rick Armstrong, Managing Director of Armstrong’s.
“It is also an important development from an Armstrong’s perspective, as it reinforces the Group’s vision of the best people, best locations and best brands.”
“Botany is an area which is experiencing rapid growth, so it’s vital we have a presence here across a number of brands, to help cater for a variety of different automotive tastes,” said Mr Armstrong.
“It’s also a win for the local community, as we are making a significant investment in the East Auckland economy through the construction of new buildings as well as creation of new jobs.”
Armstrong’s represents 16 international automotive marques, and this new dealership is the 31st brand location nationwide.
