Lifestyle Europe has opened its new Ford showroom on Old Guildford Road, Horsham.
A Ford dealer since 2001, the construction of the new Lifestyle Ford showroom took seven months to complete, with a total investment of £5 million. The dealership employs 80 people.
To mark the occasion Mark Ovenden, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain officially unveiled a commemorative plaque inside the showroom to staff and customers who attended the opening.
Ovenden said: “It’s great to be at Lifestyle Ford to witness the official opening of its new showroom. The new, stylish design perfectly underlines everything that the Ford brand and its cars represent, and I’m sure it will be a great asset to customers in Horsham and the surrounding area.”
Marc Matthew, chairman of the Lifestyle, said: “We’re very excited to introduce customers to our new and improved showroom on Old Guildford Road.
"The clean and sophisticated look of our new showroom will really appeal to our customers and give them even more of a reason to visit our dealership.
"It’s an honour to be visited by Mark and a privilege to officially open the doors to local customers.
"All of our staff based in Horsham and across the group see the development as an exciting time in the group’s growth and it clearly demonstrates our commitment to the future representation of Ford in Horsham and the surrounding area."
The eight-vehicle showroom holds the entire range of Ford vehicles.
The centre also has a specialist business and fleet team who have the complete Ford commercial vehicle range on site and available to test drive.
