Aston Martin specialist Nicholas Mee & Co have a reputation for working on some fantastic projects, but their latest endeavour isn’t a single car. It turned into an entire farm! The team have rebuilt a collection of historic farm buildings in Essendon, Hertfordshire. As part of the Hatfield Park Estate, the 17th century structures have been renovated to create new workshops.
The new heritage facility covers a two-acre site and has been described as the “definitive environment demanded by today’s discerning Aston Martin owner.” The facility is equipped with the latest technology for Nicholas Mee & Co’s needs. The company moved from West London in the summer, with their services, parts and car sales operations being fully operational at the site.
It’s an exciting move because the company is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Founder and Managing Director Nicholas Mee said “this is an extremely exciting time for our company, our new and existing Aston Martin-owning clients and our dedicated workforce. As the ever-expanding classic car world continues to evolve, our relocation is in direct response to the needs of both our clients and ourselves.”
“Operational in our new home for some three months, the universal praise I’ve received from Aston Martin owners for our commitment to the future and standard of facilities, has been heartwarming. Away from the hustle and bustle of London, we’ve found our clients to be highly appreciative of the expansive facilities and relaxed rural ambiance, when visiting to discuss their requirements.”
The Essendon site has a state-of-the-art show hall that can be used for a variety of events, whether its media or customer relations. The workshop areas have provided Nicholas Mee & Co with greater opportunities to build, allowing for continued growth.
We think the idea of an Aston Martin farm is fantastic. Not only does it create a new facility, but it provides Essendon with growth opportunities as well.
