The automotive brand shared the Highbrook vision and was one of the first customers to commit to Green Star rated office space in 2010. A design-built 10,150 sqm parts warehouse followed five years later.
“We’ve transitioned from older legacy premises into purpose-built alternatives, enabling our business to operate much more efficiently.” Craig Sterritt, Ford's Customer Service Director
The record number of new car sales and the success of the recent model range has driven strong growth for the New Zealand branch of the Ford Motor Company.
Flexible workspaces were integrated into Ford’s new 1,500 sqm office. Accommodating around 50 staff, it can be easily configured into seminar and conference spaces for dealer training and promotional events. An efficient warehouse, utilising the latest racking and forklift technology, provides full parts inventory for the country. Future planning has ensured it has the capacity to support agrowing new model range.
The benefits of the location and amenity that’s been created were identified as other key factors in Ford's decision to grow its business at Highbrook.
