Garage group’s Rumblingwell operation moves to Baldridgeburn
After 13 years at Rumblingwell in Dunfermline, D&G Autocare is moving its first ever garage the short distance to Baldridgeburn.
The Fife-based garage group is leaving the site where it all started in 2004 and relocating to a building formerly used by Scott Murray Motors.
Work has been ongoing at the site over the past few months to renovate and revamp the building into a modern garage facility, which can be used by D&G to provide a full servicing requirement, as well as an MOT station.
Director of Operations Pete Wood said: “We are delighted to announce this move to new, larger premises at Baldridgeburn. We leave Rumblingwell with a heavy heart though as this was our very first garage location, the backbone of the business for thirteen years, and as such, holds many happy memories for us.
“These new premises at Baldridgeburn, which are close enough for us to fully retain our customer base, offer far greater scope for expansion and we look forward to the new garage facility being finished. Once the renovations and building works are completed the new branch will be far brighter inside. We expect to be fully operational by 29 May.”
The garage will be headed up by Jordan Blair, who has been the manager of the Rumblingwell branch for the past five years.
Wood added: “We expect to employ at least one other person at the new site. Jordan will once again provide a professional management role and has been very instrumental over the past five years in building up this branch to its current level.”
D&G is now thought to be Scotland’s leading independent garage group, covering fifteen locations across the Scottish central belt, from Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, and Glenrothes in the East, through Edinburgh, Livingston and Stirling, to East Kilbride in the West.
Recent accolades include being named Best Scottish Group by www.whocanfixmycar.com, one of the country’s leading autocare search websites, which lists more than 9,000 garages, mechanics and dealerships all over the UK.
The firm says it’s continuing to look at further expansion across the central belt.
