PLATINUM Motor Group in Frome has become a SsangYong retailer.
Sales manager Ollie Broughton said: ‘We endeavour to provide a high quality of service to all of our customers by employing highly trained, motivated staff, which I believe is the key to our success.
‘We are sure this success will continue with the SsangYong brand – we’ve been impressed with the new products coming from South Korea and the industry-leading seven-year warranty, so we are delighted to add SsangYong to our portfolio. We think our customers will be impressed too.’
The group was founded in the Somerset town in 1976. The business, which represents several automotive brands, has expanded steadily, establishing itself as one of the leading automotive players in the south-west of England.
Nick Laird, managing director at SsangYong Motors UK, said: ‘SsangYong Platinum is an outstanding dealer, and we are delighted that they have joined the SsangYong family. The Platinum group has a superb reputation in the south-west, and we look forward to a positive and professional working relationship with them.’
It comes as the first shipment of the all-new Korando docked at Avonmouth, with more vehicles due to arrive over the coming weeks.
Premiered at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the new iteration of the SUV will be in dealer showrooms from September 1, with SsangYong dealers nationally holding launch events on September 7 and 8.
