NI’S ENTHUSIASM FOR PORSCHES DRIVES LOCAL FIRM’S ONGOING GROWTH

A leading Northern Ireland Porsche technician is significantly expanding his business with support from Ulster Bank.

George McMillan, who owns McMillan Porsche, says that Northern Ireland’s rising number of enthusiasts for the luxury car brand has seen his customer-base swell considerably.

Porsche sales in Northern Ireland increased by seven percent in 2016 alone, according to figures from the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders).

To facilitate ongoing business growth, McMillan Porsche has acquired new 55,000 sq ft premises at Kilbegs Industrial Estate in Antrim, comprising a large workshop, training area, customer facilities, and a forecourt.

There, the company intends to expand its workforce from five people two years ago to 15 people over the next two years.

The investment of almost one-quarter-of-a-million pounds has been financed by Ulster Bank.

McMillan Porsche offers servicing, diagnostics, modifications, repairs, and rebuilds of the premium cars. It has also begun to sell Porsches and some other luxury brands.

George McMillan says: “Outside of Germany, the UK has one of the highest instances of Porsche ownerships anywhere, and Northern Ireland has a large and growing base of Porsche owners. We have a significant customer-base in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and increasingly we have customers who bring their Porsches over from England for significant work as well.”

“The new premises are state-of-the-art and will allow us to further grow the business, including allowing us to sell more Porsches. We’ve worked closely with Ulster Bank who helped finance the purchase and are very confident that it will be a fantastic platform for the future of the company,” he adds

Conor McNeill, business manager with Ulster Bank, says: “George started the business out the back of his house, employing one person, and his reputation for delivering a very high standard of work has seen him attract many more customers. We are very pleased to help with the new premises, which are a fitting base for a highly professional business.”
