PENTON APPOINTED AS VAUXHALL DEALER FOR SALISBURY AND ANDOVER
Penton Motor Group, the south of England based, Wilson family owned, Citroën and Suzuki dealer group have been appointed as the Vauxhall dealer for the Salisbury and Andover areas.
Talking about the appointment, new Retail Operator Charlie Wilson said, "We are proud and delighted to have been awarded the Vauxhall franchise. It is an iconic brand and we have been hugely impressed with the quality and design of the latest models, it is no wonder that Vauxhall are the UK's fastest growing retail car brand. The new Mokka, Zafira Tourer and Ampera really grabbed the car buying public's imagination in 2012, and with the ADAM and Cascada still to come in early 2013, it's an exciting time to be joining the network."
Vauxhall owners previously orphaned by the demise of Approach earlier this year, can now have their vehicles serviced, repaired and MOT tested at Penton's Churchfields Road premises in Salisbury. Used Vauxhall vehicle sales are already in underway, with new vehicle sales following from the same location in early 2013.
Group Managing Director Robert Wilson commented, "Penton have now been operating successfully in Salisbury for 22 years. Vauxhall is an exciting new addition to our brand portfolio, it's not often you get the opportunity to take up a franchise with in excess of 10% market share. The new franchise is an exciting opportunity for everyone in our company.
Penton have already managed to secure the services of a number of highly skilled Vauxhall staff members, but a number of opportunities still exist. Prospective candidates are asked to email their CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org
