B+H Motors has completed the relocation of its Workington Seat dealership to new premises after receiving a funding package from Clydesdale Bank.
The solus Seat franchise, which previously operated out of rented premises in nearby Whitehaven, celebrated its move to the new facility in Lillyhall, Workington.
At three times the size of its previous dealership – and capable of carrying three times more used car stock – the opening of the new site is a boost for the business which was founded over fifty years ago and won Seat Dealer of the Year in 2007, 2008 and 2012.
Geoff Moore, director, B+H Motors, said: “We have been in business for fifty years and banked with Clydesdale for almost the entire period.
“It is incredibly exciting to see the business expanding, but we have the same family values as before. We have had one bank almost since the very beginning and we value this long-standing relationship and the support Simon and his team provide.”
Simon Campbell, commercial manager at Clydesdale Bank, said: “We are delighted to be supporting B+H Motors in the next stage of their growth. The management team have shown great ambition in expanding the business and we look forward to working with them as they continue to grow.”
B+H Motors’ new site has already allowed for an increase in turnover and profitability, with the opening weekend resulting in record numbers of new vehicles ordered for delivery in March, a statement issued by the business revealed.
