Horizon-Magna Motor Group has opened its second Mitsubishi dealership, in Salisbury.
The site on the A338, The Headlands, Downton, has been a garage since the 1920s and was taken over by Horizon-Magna Motor Group in 2002.
The redevelopment took two years of planning and 13 months of building, with the old three-car showroom transformed into one big enough for 11 vehicles. The workshop has gone from having two bays to five plus MOT facilities, and there is now a 20-space car park for visitors and a new waiting area.
Dealer principal Tony Roberts said: “We’re really pleased with the new showroom and workshop. We think it has turned out incredibly well. Salisbury is a new territory for Mitsubishi but I believe the Mitsubishi range is extremely well suited to the rural area that we are in, and the experience that we’ve gained at Poole with colleagues who’ve many years of Mitsubishi experience will, I know, offer customers the highest levels of service and expertise.
“We are a privately-owned company that has been trading for more than 40 years, and we’ve grown by looking after our customers and gaining their loyalty. We recognise and value that loyalty, and continually strive to offer a personal service to everyone.”
Managing director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK Lance Bradley said: “A lot of work has gone into the new site and it looks fantastic. We wish them every success for the future.”
The opening follows the success of the group’s outlet in Ringwood Road, Poole, which opened three years ago and has already won the coveted New Dealer of the Year award for the brand.
Salisbury Mitsubishi becomes the seventh new Mitsubishi showroom to open in the UK in 2015.
