Gordon Lamb’s £.5 million Chesterfield Land Rover dealership gained a ministerial seal of approval when Toby Perkins MP paid a visit to the new Arch Concept facility.
The group’s ‘single Arch’ dealership on Discovery Way, Whittington Moor, was acquired by parent company Vertu Motors in 2016 and has recently undergone a thorough redevelopment to subscribe to Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) corporate identity.
A dedicated vehicle handover area, interactive colour and trim display and brand merchandise area are all part of the new customer experience, while a PDI centre, 14 technician bays, a separate MOT testing area, dedicated 4-wheel alignment facility and SMART repair facility have improved operational efficiencies at the site.
Robert Bonser, head of business at Gordon Lamb Land Rover, said: “This investment is a real statement of our confidence in Chesterfield and in the Land Rover brand.
“It was a proud moment for me to show Mr Perkins around the new dealership, which is looking absolutely fantastic.
“The feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to welcoming new and returning customers to view the full range of vehicles and take advantage of the excellent customer service the whole team prides itself on.”
Perkins said: “It has been a pleasure to be shown around the new Land Rover dealership and I am always delighted to see businesses investing and expanding in Chesterfield.
“This is yet another example of a company who consider Chesterfield a thriving place worthy of their investment. We should all take pride in the fact so many businesses want to invest in our town.
“The new site is very impressive for new sales and servicing. The business currently employs over 60 people and the team were understandably proud of their new showroom and facilities.
“Gordon Lamb has been a familiar presence in Chesterfield for many years and this whole site reflects very well on the Land Rover brand and on Chesterfield as a place for those in the market for a brand new or premium used car.”
