Three-site Scottish dealer Alistair Fleming has been bought by TOM Motors for an undisclosed sum.
David Pazikas, group dealer principal of TOM Motors, told The Courier it would continue to operate the Citroen car and commercial vehicle franchise at the Alistair Fleming sites in Dundee, Ayr and Kilmarnock.
Pazikas said: "We will be maintaining the three sites, and through this deal we will be able to feed Citroen into the fleet of commercial vehicles for which we operate services across the TOM Group.
“More importantly, we will be able to deliver a greater and enhanced sales and aftersales proposition to our retail customers, at an exciting time for Citroen with the comprehensive product range and chic DS line-up.”
Shortly after the relaunch the Dundee site will have a full makeover.
Pazikas said: “Citroen feature heavily in the UK automotive industry, and we want to propel the product into those who have never had the experience and continue to enhance the care to returning customers that enjoy the brand currently.”
Employing more than 500 staff, TOM has branches throughout the UK offering vehicle rental and sales, recovery, MoT testing, coachworks and a bodyshop and repair centre.
Alistair Fleming had sites at Dundee, Ayr and Kilmarnock.
