Volvo of Memphis files permit on new location

Volvo of Memphis is moving to a spot near Germantown Road, going from lessee to land owner in the process.

Wenco Auto Group dba Volvo of Memphis plans to open a new car dealership at 7910 Trinity Road before July 2014.

Local contractor Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc. filed a $2.3 million building permit for the site. Fleming & Associates is listed as the project’s architect.

The company’s lease at its current location, 2085 Covington Pike, ends next July.

The move was helped by Volvo Cars North America’s facility improvement program, according to Volvo of Memphis owner Ernie Norcross.

The new property will be owned by Volvo of Memphis, operating as Wenco Properties LLC, as opposed to leasing at its current location.

“Because of that and because of the incentives offered by Volvo, it prompted us to look for another piece of property we could own and operate,” Norcross said.
