Harris Maxus has announced plans to open a new headquarters in Warrington.
The company is the sole distributor for the Maxus range of diesel and electric vehicles in the UK, and right-hand drive markets in Europe, with its operations until now overseen from its global HQ in Ireland.
The new facility will house Maxus’s UK-based employees as well as acting as a arts depot, with offices and a warehouse on site.
Harris Maxus general manager Mark Barrett said: “The creation of a UK HQ is an important step for our business activities and only strengthens our commitment to the UK market.
“Maxus has become a leader in the electric vehicle sector and our success in this area will only continue as electric vehicles become more and more popular in the years ahead.
“We are currently forecasting growth of 200% in 2021 and have plans to expand our network of dealers right across the UK. The past 12 months have been difficult for the industry as a whole, but we are looking forward to what the next year has in store.”
