Paul Gaudet of City Collision Services has announced that his business will be relocating and expanding to a new building in the Sherwood Industrial Park.
Gaudet and his staff at City Collision Services have over 40 years of experience in automotive collision repair and are outgrowing their current space next door to Experience Hyundai.
Gaudet said in a news release, “I’m pretty excited about our new expansion as the design will give us a much better controlled environment for painting and detailing and more comfort for our staff and our customers.”
City Collision Services has signed a lease agreement with property developer Jamie Hill. Hill is using APM Construction Services to turnkey design-build the project to accommodate City Collision Services as a single-use tenant.
The project’s building permit was approved by the City of Charlottetown in early November and APM started construction immediately after.
“The foundation has already been poured and the walls have been put up,” Gaudet said. “We’re on track to open the new facility in late spring of 2014 and we’re pumped to do so.”
This new development is next door to Hill’s $4 million Northcom Business Centre, which opened last year.
Hill said, “We all want businesses to expand here on Prince Edward Island and I’m pleased to be able to support businesses like Paul Gaudet’s grow, which in turn, helps strengthen our economy and provides new jobs.”
The Northcom Business Centre is over 60 per cent occupied by tenants such as UPS and Genivar and there are more units available for lease to businesses ranging from commercial, office, retail or light industrial.
