Snows Motor Group is set to join the Mercedes-Benz Vans franchise network with the opening of a new dealership in Exeter.
The latest addition to the network will operate initially from a temporary facility at Hennock Road Central, Marsh Barton, on December 18 and will open a new facility towards the end of the year following a £1.4 million investment in the site.
Class 7 MOT capability, a huge nine-screen interactive TV display in the main showroom and numerous other high-tech solutions in the retail environment will be included in the new showroom.
Sarah Palfreyman, head of network operations, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, said: “We are proud to welcome Snows Group to our Network. Its team bring a wealth of local knowledge, and a real understanding of both retail and commercial customers.”
She continued: “When selecting a new dealer partner we had to ensure that not only would it be the right ‘fit’ for our business now, but that it would also be best-placed in the future to adapt to the changing requirements of our customers’ businesses.
“Snows Group have a proven track record of meeting the highest standards of product presentation and service, and we very much look forward to working with them.”
Snows joins the Mercedes-Benz Network following the recent announcement that the new X-Class pickup is due to arrive in the UK shortly.
The Mercedes-Benz brand’s first SUV is expected to boost sales for Van Centre operators currently trading in the established Sprinter, Vito and Citan commercial vehicle line-up.
Stephen Snow, Snows’ Group chairman, said: “The Mercedes-Benz Vans dealership is great news for discerning businesses that value quality driving experiences and vehicle reliability.
“We are proud to be able to help customers across the region with their commercial needs and look forward to providing an unrivalled customer experience, from sales to servicing and parts.”
