Hendy Group has announced plans for a brand new Transit centre and the opening of a new MG dealership in Manor Royal.

Gatwick Transit Centre is set to open in early July on the site of the group’s current Ford car and commercial dealership.

Chief executive Paul Hendy said the move would enable Hendy to meet demand for commercial vehicles and crucially, the London market.

Hendy’s current commercial operations in Crawley, Horsham and Redhill will be consolidated in the new Gatwick Transit Centre which will be a state of the art dealership offering the quality and service Hendy offers throughout its operations, a company spokesman said.

As part of the moves the existing Ford car dealership will move to Hendy’s nearby facility in Manor Royal where it will operate alongside MG, a new franchise for Hendy in the area.

Paul added: “The emergence of MG’s strong electric portfolio will add significant value to the area as the demand for electric vehicles grows, as well as growing our representation with this exciting, emerging brand.

“These changes have been in the planning for some time.

“We are now pleased to be in a position to implement these changes which present a strong opportunity for Hendy to grow our car and commercial sales and aftersales in this area and we look forward to the opportunities these changes represent.”
