To be constructed at the junction between the rather appropriately-named Battlefield Way and Vanguard Way, a new Mercedes-Benz UK dealership is set to open in June 2014.
The building is part of a multi-million investment in new premises by the Drayton Group, which has been a franchised dealer partner with Mercedes-Benz UK for over 40 years and already have seven other dealerships in the region.

“Today is a landmark for Mercedes-Benz in the heart of the UK. The investment in these state of the art premises shows that Ken Forbes and his team at Drayton Group are committing to a long future serving our existing and new customers. The only way a business can expand is to invest – invest in new premises, invest in its products and services, and invest in a great team. For Ken Forbes and his great team, Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury represents a hat-trick for Drayton Group, and it’s a real pleasure today to be present at the start of the ground works for this flagship facility.” said Marcus Breitschwerdt, the President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK at the breaking ground event.

Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury will be the new flagship dealership of the region, replacing the current Battlefield Road site.
