Sytner Group is to open a new Mercedes Benz dealership on a five-acre site at Carlisle’s Kingmoor Park Enterprise Zone.

Sytner will move from its existing location in Rosehill to the new location. Kingmoor offers government incentives including up to 100% business rate discount – worth a maximum £275,000 over five years. They will also benefit from simplified local authority planning and support to ensure superfast broadband.

The multi-million pound development will lead to around 50 additional jobs being created, increasing the workforce from 52 to 100. The new 40,000 sq ft building will include a showroom, workshop, MoT area and other facilities.

John Buchan, Sytner’s project management for the new development, said: “We are looking forward to relocating our existing Mercedes Benz business to a fantastic new facility that we expect will be open early 2019.”
