Privately owned Armstrong’s Group is set to open a further dealership in Auckland, in 2021. This will be the Group’s seventh dealership in Auckland which started with the initial acquisition of Auckland City Toyota in 2014. The new Nissan dealership will be developed at 277 Ti Rakau Drive in Botany, right next door to their existing Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai dealerships that were both opened in mid 2017.
Managing Director Rick Armstrong commented “This is an extension of both our Nissan representation and our commitment to the East Auckland area, both of which have proven to be very successful. We have been working on this project for some time, and it is great to now announce the new dealership with an expected opening around May 2021.”
The existing building will be partly demolished and rebuilt to produce an ultra-modern dealership that is clearly focused on customers – plenty of space, easy off-street parking, full sales and service on-site, as well as the added benefit of the adjacent Armstrong’s Auto Body Shop which is already housed on the site and operational.
Armstrong’s have an existing Nissan dealership in Lower Hutt which has also recently been through significant development. An extra 6 service bays were recently added and the showroom area has been refurbished to new corporate identity standards.
Armstrong concluded “Our move to Botany, and specifically our commitment to the Ti Rakau Drive area has been a really successful move and we are very happy to keep developing dealerships in this area. We have further plans already afoot to create a real vehicle destination precinct in East Auckland.
