TORONTO, May 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Hannu Ylanko, Vice President, National
Sales for Mercedes-Benz Canada, recently joined Sylvester Chuang,
Dealer Principal of Three Point Motors - Nanaimo, and Dealership
General Manager Peter Trzewik, to celebrate the grand opening of a new
retail facility in Nanaimo, BC. The expansive new structure erected at
2472 Kenworth Road will replace the current Three-Point Motors Nanaimo
location, and will now operate as Mercedes-Benz Nanaimo.
Conveniently located at the commercial heart of Nanaimo, the 14,000
square foot building represents a considerable investment in the area
that will significantly expand the capacity of the dealership. The
open-concept showroom spans nearly 6,000 square feet, providing an
ideal environment to display a broad selection of vehicles from the
exciting Mercedes-Benz, AMG, Sprinter and smart product line-up.
A state-of-the-art service area features four fully-equipped service
bays and one oversized bay designed to accommodate Sprinter vans. This
will provide sufficient capacity to further improve processes and
better serve the after-sales, parts and accessories needs of valued
customers. In addition, a 2,200 square foot drive-thru will provide
customers a convenient vehicle drop-off or pick-up area that protects
them from inclement weather.
The overall layout of the entire facility follows the trademark Auto
Haus design concept, featuring extensive use of glass to promote
transparency throughout the building. This signature design also
guarantees a consistent brand identity for each dealership in the
company's cross-Canada network, regardless of location.
"Sylvester Chuang has been a trusted long-time partner of Mercedes-Benz
Canada, and we applaud his decision to expand operations in Nanaimo by
constructing a beautiful new retail facility," said Hannu Ylanko. "This
substantial investment has solidified our commitment to this growing
market. We are confident that this new dealership will provide an
excellent foundation from which to better serve the needs of existing
customers in the area, while also providing a platform to further
expand our client base."
