‘It is clear that both dealerships share the same passion for customer service and we are really looking forward to an exciting future as part of the Ocean Automotive Group.’

Sales have been at an all-time-high this year, where conscientious customers have been looking to spend their hard-earned money on a quality product, delivered with a quality service.

‘The acquisition will afford us some of the economy of scale benefits, allowing us to be even more responsive to customer demand and to further improve our customer experience.’
