Johnsons Cars has moved its Redditch Volvo operation into its existing showroom in Solihull in a move which has seen the transfer of 21 staff to the site.
The Highlands Road dealership is now home to 21 members of staff from the former Volvo Car UK site in Redditch.
Johnsons said that existing customers will be able to deal with familiar faces from the Redditch team, with service manager Nigel Moore, general sales manager Richard Thorpe and sales advisor Lynn Cook among those making the switch.
Customers making the move to the new facility – which is ten miles from the Redditch site – will also now benefit from free collection and delivery of their vehicle.
Mark Perkins, franchise director for Johnsons Volvo, said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome the Redditch team to our Solihull site.
“They are a great team who have built an outstanding reputation for customer loyalty and satisfaction in the local area and they all bring a huge passion for the Volvo brand with them, too.
“Redditch customers can be assured that they will continue to enjoy the high levels of service they are used to receiving from the wider Johnsons team at our modernised showroom.
“The Solihull dealership was designed to facilitate a new level of customer experience and now the joining of the two teams will offer exciting new possibilities for the future as the Volvo range continues to grow.”
In 2015, Johnsons Solihull was one of the first Volvo dealerships in the UK to invest in a new purpose-built facility as part of the Volvo Retail Experience (VRE) programme, Volvo Car UK’s new CI which is being rolled out across its dealer network.
