Luxury used car specialist Lawton Book has invested £750,000 in its Knaresborough showroom.
The investment coincides with the company’s 21st birthday and has taken eight months to complete. The upgrades include the construction of vehicle turntable and client webinar viewing facilities, the installation of 10kw, solar powered system to reduce the business’ carbon footprint, a redesign and refurbishment of sales and administration offices and the installation of a new IT system.
Peter Brook, Lawton Brook managing director said: “We were originally based on Hornbeam Park and, when we launched a sister company, Oracle Finance, we decided we wanted to have both operations under one roof.
“Both Oracle Finance and Lawton Brook have grown considerably which was another factor that led us to undertaking this major refurbishment project.
“The investment has created more space for us to comfortably grow into. In addition, it has provided us – and more importantly our clients – with the ability to either view vehicles on site or, thanks to the turntable and webinar facilities, over the internet.
“The new IT system has been custom-designed for us and is making our life a lot easier already.”
