Time 9:00 am, December 31, 2018

JARDINE Motors Group has opened a state-of-the-art £12m Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Tonbridge.

The Woodgate Way site merges the existing dealerships in Tonbridge and Sevenoaks into a bespoke location that boasts the new dual Arch style of modern Jaguar Land Rover showrooms.

It gives customers the full range of services, including an 18-car showroom and space for a further 100 used cars to be displayed. It also features a rooftop car park for additional parking and a service drive-through lane.

The new dealership is the result of a collaboration between Jardine Motors Group and brand partner Jaguar Land Rover.

Paul Varney, head of business at the site, said: ‘I am excited to be given the opportunity to bring these two teams together in this amazing new facility.

‘I aim to continue to foster a positive, collaborative work environment and culture to make this one of the best-performing Jaguar Land Rover dealerships in the country – a goal the rest of the team share and are working hard to achieve.’

As part of the restructuring, a number of colleagues have received promotions. Among them is Lee Turner, who has worked with Jaguar since he was 16 as an apprentice technician and has become a service manager. Commenting on his promotion, he said: ‘Working as part of this fantastic team has helped me achieve so much in such a short time.

‘I’m very grateful to Jardine Motors Group for giving me the opportunity to lead such an innovative team as part of a new dealership.’
