A FAMILY run North East Lincolnshire car dealership is expanding into Nottinghamshire.
The Read Motor Group, the company behind the presence of Hyundai and Suzuki in the Grimsby-area, has opened in Worksop.
It was seen as a "brilliant opportunity" to expand growth and further establish its highly respected brand.
The new dealership will boast a brand new six or seven car showroom, a six vehicle workshop complete with a full MOT facility and space for up to 50 used cars on the site, ensuring that the facility is well prepared for the volume of turnover that it is expecting.
Mike Read is the owner of Read Motor Group, which he established in 2010 after acquiring the Hyundai franchise in Grimsby. It proved so successful that just months later he was opening his second Hyundai dealership in Lincoln.
Having both now won Hyundai European Dealership Awards, the group added a Suzuki dealership in Grimsby, and Hyundai in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.
Mr Read is optimistic about his company’s new venture, and feels it is a perfect opportunity to continue the successive years of growth the business has seen.
He said: “Our philosophy as a dealership is to focus on plain old fashioned good service, giving our customers the best possible experience and the highest level of service available, which is one of the top reasons why they keep coming back!
“Since 2008 Hyundai has seen successive years of record sales and growth within the UK and our dealerships have seen this level of success as well, experiencing constant growth within our sector, which was rewarded by Hyundai in the receipt of our two European Dealership Awards, which showed us as one of the brands leading outlets in Europe.
“Our new dealership in Worksop, is a terrific opportunity for us to branch out into a new county, which will link together all of our existing branches, and allow us to create 16 new jobs in the area. We are sure that we can make this new dealership as inviting and successful as all of our others.”
