SsangYong Adds new Dealers
SsangYong Motor UK has added a wave of brand new dealers that take its network total to as high as 34, with 18 service centres. New appointments were made at both Wolverhampton and Hereford, with three dealerships that were formerly service agents having also taken up the brand new car franchise in order to represent the marque in areas such as Lutterworth, Northern Ireland, Leicestershire, County Tyrone, Kent and Strabane, and Larkfield.
"We have worked really hard over the past few months to talk to as many prospective dealers as possible, and this is really paying dividends" says the Chief Executive Officer of SsangYong Motor UK, Paul Williams. "Of course the market is testing, but in many cases we've been leaning on an open door and people are only too keen to meet." Williams notes that the reasons for the enthusiasm include the company's reputation for producing honest, reliable and well engineered vehicles, as well as the excellent reception given by the media to their new Korando crossover car and the five-year limitless mileage Car Warranty, which is a market leader.
The firm is still continuing to seek out prospective new dealers to take on the franchise at a variety of open points throughout England, Scotland and Wales, including the likes of such areas as Inverness, Mid and North Wales, Borders, London/South East, Newcastle, Southampton, Teesside, Exeter, Leeds, Reading, Bradford, Leicester, Sheffield, Watford, Nottingham, Coventry, Liverpool and Greater Manchester.
"This is a great franchise opportunity for a range of businesses" Williams adds.
