Pye Motors are proud and excited to share news of our latest expansion: late last week, we agreed the purchase of the Furness Park Sport and Prestige site on Abbey Road in Barrow-in-Furness.
The move will allow Pye Motors to expand its footprint significantly in the area. The business has changed since moving into the town nearly 30 years ago. Alongside growing car volumes, we have seen that vans and pickups have become an increasingly important part of the offering. As a consequence, we need to expand our sales and workshop spaces.
MD of Pye Motors, Nick Payne, said “We are delighted and proud to be able to acquire this well established and significant building and footprint from the Stoker family. We are still very much a family business in our 98th year and it became apparent very early in the negotiations that it was a natural fit. We are pleased to able to expand at such an exciting time for the town and the wider community with investment coming into Barrow at an unprecedented level. The area has a very exciting, vibrant and secure future.”
Glenn Stoker from Furness Park Sport and Prestige said “we are absolutely delighted that the site will remain in a local family business’s hand and wish the Pye team every success in the future.”
It is likely to be a couple of months before the Pye and Ford Brand operate from the site as work is required to prepare it for its new future. We are excited for the new career opportunities that this will bring to the town.
The existing Pye site in Barrow on James Freel Close will remain in the group and news on that site will be announced in due course.
