Work by Wake Smith Solicitors has helped a car repair and maintenance specialist double the size of its premises.

German Autocentre Ltd, which is part of the DSA Group and was formed in 2010, offers dealer level servicing, diagnostics and repairs, and has taken an 11,000 sq ft premises on Brightside Lane in Sheffield.

The move will see the company, which now employs 38 people, add to its current premises on Attercliffe Common in Sheffield with the modern industrial premises which features a works area, yard and offices.

Garry Maddison, general manager at German Autocentre said: “This is a progressive move forward for the company.

“We started looking for a new site due to the increasing demands of our business. We needed more space as we had outgrown our previous site.

“The new premises has a larger work area with 16 work stations, a private well fenced yard, ample on site car parking and offices and will allow us to continue our expanding car repairs and services, diagnostics service and high standards of customer care.

“It also benefits from a prominent location on Brightside Lane and in close proximity to the recently opened Sytner main BMW dealership.

“The move also means we have expanded our workforce to 38.”

Solicitors Wake Smith advised on the lease for the new premises, marketed by property professionals Mark Jenkinson & Son, for German Autocentre.

Gary added: “We used Wake Smith’s commercial property team and found their services to be exceptional.

“Tom Weightman was very professional. Working with Wake Smith was an excellent experience; their dedication and professionalism was second to none, delivering on all points.”

"We are delighted to have helped another independent business expand and wish them the best of luck for the future."
