FACTORY-APPROVED heritage Aston Martin experts Nicholas Mee & Company will be relocating to a new, purpose-built facility in early 2018, which will allow the creation of several new roles within its workshops.
The firm is based in West London, but will be shifting their operations to a bespoke location in rural Hertfordshire.
The new two-acre site will be a ‘destination experience’ for Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts, with a ‘distinctly Heritage experience’ promised for those who work at or visit the facility.
Expansion will also be evident in the workforce, as numerous new employment opportunities are set to become available.
Company founder and managing director Nicholas Mee said: ‘[We’re] aiming to double the current level of employees. We are excited to be developing a new world-class and state-of-the-art heritage facility, in a desirable location. It’s exciting to be expanding our skilled workforce and further enhancing our available services, to existing customers and the many Aston Martin owners and collectors worldwide seeking expert services and advice’.
Mee explained the motivation for the expansion: ‘As the classic car world continues to evolve, this expansion is in direct response to the needs of both our clients and ourselves. The relocation to our new site will strengthen the company’s ‘long term’ position and plans, within an industry which has recently been valued to be worth £5.5 billion pounds annually to the UK economy.’
The new destination will include a show hall and a gallery that can be configured for large private events. The expansive workshop areas are key to the firm’s increasing workforce, as the larger space will allow for more in-house specialists, such as trimmers, fabricators and engineers.
