Volvo has made two additional dealer appointments as it aims to grow its network to 110 sites by the end of 2010. Snows Motor Group in Poole and North City in Chigwell have been confirmed as Volvo dealers with immediate effect.
The new Poole dealer will adopt the Kings trading name and is an additional site, making it the fifth Kings Volvo site. It operates a full dealer service of new and used cars, servicing and warranty repairs and manages the brand’s coverage on the western side of Dorset.
Neil McCue, Franchise Manager for Kings Volvo, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our Volvo operation into Poole. This is an exciting time for Kings Volvo and highlights our long-term strategy and commitment to provide quality franchised car dealerships across Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset.”
North City is conveniently based in Chigwell, Essex and is a family business established by husband and wife team Peter and Karen Smith. North City has 25 years experience as a main dealer and Volvo will join a very successful company which holds manufacturer awards for excellence.
North City’s Dealer Principal Karen Smith said: “Volvo offers a comprehensive range of aspirational, economical lifestyle vehicles which, combined with our strong commitment to customer service will provide an excellent all round experience for our customers.
Philip Hand, Network Development Manager for Volvo Car UK Limited, said: “The addition of these two businesses underlines the quality of dealers that are both joining the Volvo franchise and expanding with us. We are excited about them representing the Volvo brand with energy and enthusiasm in their local markets.”
