Have you heard? We're expanding our facility to include a brand-new, 18,000 square-foot Customer Experience Center equipped with a full motorsports facility, content studio, 24-hour parts pickup and more. This week, we've broken ground and made some incredible progress. Here's what you've missed.
In episode two of our expansion updates, we start off with, quite literally, the first thing a customer will see when entering our facility—the sidewalk. It took all the strength and resistance in the world for those of us looking on to not write our names in the concrete for future generations of FCP Euro customers and employees to behold. Even though the process is just pouring concrete, it's a big deal for us, especially when you consider how it'll look once the facility finally opens. The sidewalk just so happens to be wide enough for a TCR to park on, and no, that wasn't a coincidence.
While there aren't a lot of walls going in our new space, the few that will be there have already gone up. The plumbing and electrical are all in place and ready to go. Before we know it, drywall will be up and it'll look like a proper facility.
One of our favorite parts of the new expansion is the massive glass roll-up door front and center. Right now, there's a temporary wall to keep the heat in, but that wall will be coming down. Not only will this door bring in massive amounts of light, but it'll also bring the outside in during our many events!
Another cool feature of our new expansion is the retail center. Glass walls between the spaces will bring the content and motorsports department into you.
The expansion is progressing faster than anticipated. We'll be in the new space in no time and you should be able to check it out during this years' first Cars and Coffee. Check out the video below for Alex's walk-through and make sure to subscribe for upcoming updates.
