Hampshire-based Snows Motor Group is to expand into Poole with the opening of a Volvo and Seat dealership in January 2010.
The new dealership, trading as Kings, will be based at the currently vacant Blandford Road site in Hamworthy and will join the existing four Volvo franchises and two Seat franchises already held by Snows in the Hampshire and Dorset area.
The site is currently undergoing a refurbishment to ready it for offering new and used sales, as well as servicing MoT, parts and accessories.
Stephen Snow, Snows chairman, said: “In this very testing climate our Poole dealership will not only create valuable jobs but it will add to the local economy.”
Snows is now looking for staff to recruit for the new Kings dealership for positions across the business.
Snows has 13 franchised dealerships representing brands including; BMW, Lexus, Mini, Seat, Toyota and Volvo, employing over 300 staff and has a turnover in excess of £100 million.
