Noble confirms streamlined sales and service network

British high performance sportscar maker Noble this week confirmed its restructured network of UK sales centres. The Leicestershire-based manufacturer has reduced its number of outlets from 11 to five – a move that Noble says will make the network more manageable and more focused.

These are supplemented by separate, specialist service centres. Each outlet now employs dedicated staff with an intimate knowledge of all Noble products. Managing director Lee Noble says: “We were spread too thinly previously. The main difference between the old dealer network and our new sales centres is that the factory will now be substantially more involved with the way these outlets are run. Customers feel reassured by factory participation before and after they buy their cars, so we now need to major on this.”

He adds that the changes have already led to a reduction in costs, shaving “several thousand pounds” off the price of its top model, the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 M14, which had a pre-restructuring list price of £74,950.

The new Noble sales network comprises: Mole Valley Noble, Chessington, Surrey; Newtown Motors Noble, Cwmbran, Gwent; Kerridges Noble, Ipswich, Suffolk; Noble Automotive, Barwell, Leicestershire; Christopher Neil Noble, Northwich, Cheshire.

Official service centres are MV Turbos, Carnock, Fife; Vegantune Motorsport, Finchley, London (relocating to Borehamwood, Herts, in August). Two more service agents will come on-line from the start of August: Rouch Technologies, Brentwood, Essex; and Rouch Technologies, Warwick.
