Auto dealer leases operations center

Automotive Management Services Inc. has leased a new operations center at 5923 Orr Road in northeast Charlotte for its auto sales, rental and financing business.

The company will move its executive, administration, accounting and financing operations to the location, which includes 4,000 square feet of office space, 8,000 square feet of shop space and 3 acres of outside storage.

The building also will serve as an inventory reconditioning and distribution center for cars and light trucks sold on three Auto King lots located in Charlotte and Matthews.

AMS said the facility will accommodate growth as it opens more dealerships in the region.
