Broad Oak Motor Group has officially opened the doors at its new seven-car Suzuki showroom in Canterbury.
The creation of the 800 sq-ft facility, through the redevelopment of a used car retail site on Broad Oak Road, marks a new chapter in a long-standing relationship between the Japanese car manufacturer and the retailer, which was an existing Suzuki Service Centre and retailer of its Approved Used cars.
Suzuki GB PLC director of Automobile, Dale Wyatt, said: “The Broad Oak Motor Group has done an exceptional job to create a dealership that reflects the true brand values and the merits of our product range.
“It has been encouraging to see our association grow with the business over the years, and they are the ideal partner to expand our presence in the area.
“Vitara and Jimny have always proved popular in the county, and with the latest versions now going on sale, the timing couldn’t have been better.”
Kevin Taunton, managing director of Broad Oak Motor Group Limited, said: “To date, we have enjoyed a long-standing and successful relationship with Suzuki. Therefore, with the brand recording strong demand in the UK, coupled with a recently refreshed product range that is underscored by excellent reliability and great value, we felt that it was the right commercial decision to expand our portfolio to encompass new Suzuki car sales for the first time.
“We look forward to welcoming motorists in East Kent and beyond to the new showroom, and I am sure that they will be very impressed with what they see.”
