A NEW valeting and car wash business is making a splash after opening in Worcestershire.

Parkside Professional Car Wash has launched in Stourbridge Road, Bromsgrove, after support from John Truslove.

Proprietor and owner Vullnet Celaj has taken 590 square foot on a five-year deal.

It represents a significant expansion of the business which operates in Droitwich beside the Waitrose store on Salt Way under the banner of the Elite Car Wash.

Overall 10 to 12 people are employed across both sites.

Mr Celaj said: “I have been 12 years in Droitwich and seeking to expand.

“I had been looking for ages to open up a car wash in Bromsgrove and finally found a good location with the help of John Truslove.

“It is early days but trade is promising.”

Born in Albania, Mr Celaj came to the UK some 15 years ago. He still owns a restaurant in his home country.

Ben Truslove, a director of John Truslove, said: “It is great to see someone who has come to the UK, set up in business, worked hard, expanded and is providing employment in the area.

“He has a well-established operation in Droitwich and I am sure the Bromsgrove outlet will quickly prove itself.”
