Regent Automotive is to open a new Volvo dealership in Bishop’s Stortford later this summer.
Volvo Cars Bishop’s Stortford will open its doors in September at a new one acre site on Stortford Hall Industrial Estate on Dunmow Road. It will host the full range of new Volvo models, plus approved used vehicles, together with full aftersales facilities comprising parts and servicing.
The new site will create 24 new jobs in the town across its sales, service, parts, administration and management functions.
Tracey Perry, managing director of Regent Automotive Group, said: “Having grown successfully over the last 18 months this is a landmark moment for Regent Automotive as we prepare to open our first dealership outside London.”
Regent Automotive currently operates four dealerships in the capital, under the Volvo Cars London name (Colindale, Chiswick and two in Central London). It also has a fifth site in Hatfield, which is the base for its international and corporate sales businesses.
Volvo Cars Bishop’s Stortford will feature a six bay workshop offering MoT and servicing, plus enough room outside to display 25 used cars. Inside, the showroom will accommodate seven new vehicles and a customer waiting area with free wi-fi, a plasma TV and refreshments.
