Tustain Motors has completed its acquisition of a third Vauxhall dealership in Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north-east.
Brian Baxter, managing director of Tustain Motors said that despite the challenging economic climate, the group is still optimistic about the continued expansion of the business.
Sales are up across the Tustain group with two of its Vauxhall sites ranked 1 and 2 in the country for sales in Q2.
Baxter said: “Since we opened our doors in March, we have increased sales by 35% compared to last year’s figures.
“The team is well motivated and excited about our projections for growth. We are on target with our ambitious plans which aim to build the group to 10 – 15 franchised dealerships in the next few years.
“We have confidence in the Vauxhall product. This is key to the success of our dealerships because it translates into everything we offer our customers. Vauxhall has just announced that its cars are now covered by a lifetime warranty from the first day of registration and this is a bonus in the showroom at a time when customers are looking for additional added value.”
