gravellsGRAVELLS is doubling their Swansea Kia Garage’s size by acquiring premises ajoining the dealership.

Jonathan Gravell said: ‘We have built a strong Kia dealership in Swansea but were limited in the display of used cars, by acquiring the former Dewhirst premises we will now be able to display undercover some 50 used cars’.

Gravells was founded in 1932 by the late Tom Gravell, who borrowed £15 to start his business. Today, Gravells is in the top 200 Companies in Wales and in the Top 300 garages in Great Britain measured by turnover.

Gravells is now the oldest Renault dealer in the UK having started with Renault in 1954 and recently opened a new £3m garage for Renault sales and multi-vehicle servicing.
