#1 Cochran Begins Major Upgrade of Robinson Dealerships
Pittsburgh, PA, April 1, 2011 – #1 Cochran is breaking ground on a major renovation at its Robinson Township campus that will result in significant improvements in customer convenience, dealership efficiency and overall appearance. All #1 Cochran sales and service areas will remain open during the construction process with only minor inconveniences anticipated. While preliminary work has already begun, the project will officially kick off the first week of April with completion expected by the end of July.
The ongoing success of #1 Cochran’s Robinson location led the company to initiate the site improvements. The campus currently includes new-vehicle franchises for Buick, GMC and Kia; a Pre-owned Vehicle Division; and a recently built, eco-friendly Collision Center. Rob Cochran, president and CEO of #1 Cochran, said, “Our customers have been great to us here, and we’re now going to give them a sales and service destination unlike anything they’ve seen before.”
#1 Cochran’s Buick and GMC brands will be showcased in an expansive, new state-of-the-art showroom and service center with an ultra-large customer lounge, complete with Wi-Fi. The service area will allow for multiple vehicles to be logged in simultaneously, making the process quicker and more convenient for customers.
A separate service building and vehicle prep area will also receive upgrades and a new drive-thru car wash will be built near #1 Cochran’s Kia showroom on the lower end of the campus. Other improvements will be made to grading, landscaping, lighting, parking and signage.
Located within easy access of Downtown Pittsburgh, #1 Cochran of Robinson is just steps from the Settlers Ridge retail and dining complex, which includes Giant Eagle Market District and Cinemark theatres. #1 Cochran opened its Robinson Township operations in 1990.
