NEW LOCATION FOR BAYLIS VAUXHALL IN CIRENCESTER
Baylis Vauxhall, one of the leading independently run motor groups in the Three Counties, has re-located its Vauxhall operation in Cirencester to Gloucester Road, Stratton.
The move has safeguarded up to 30 jobs in the town, after Baylis were served notice on its previous site which the landlords plan to develop as retail destination.
After securing a long-term lease on the garage at Stratton, the premises have been totally refurbished. There are now enhanced customer facilities, with an extensive used car forecourt, smart, modern new car showrooms and service reception areas, plus a parts counter, workshops and MOT testing bays.
Additional Baylis technical departments for overflow work are located nearby, and there will shortly be a reception desk for Accident Repairs at Stratton, ensuring continuity with the facilities offered at the previous garage.
Baylis has eight Vauxhall franchises in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Over the past five years, a programme of modernisation and improvement has seen a thorough refurbishment of its showrooms. There has also been a major investment in new technology behind the scenes, especially in equipping the workshops, parts operations and accident repair centres. The new facility in Cirencester is Baylis' latest investment.
Today Baylis has nearly 400 staff, many of whom have been employed within the business for decades.
The company invests heavily in employee development and training, and has an apprenticeship programme, regularly taking on young people for all departments. In 2019 it was listed as one of the best companies to work for in the UK, with a one star award from the organisation that compiles the lists for the Sunday Times.
Service manager for Cirencester, Tom Moss, said “We’re really looking forward to welcoming all our customers to
Gloucester Road, Stratton and showing them the excellent new facilities we have here. It may look more compact than our previous site, but having everything under one roof - plus the advanced technology we have now - will provide a much better experience for everyone.”
