Redditch Volvo dealership transfers operations to Solihull

Time 5 years ago

TWO Volvo dealerships operated by Johnsons Cars in the midlands have merged.

The staff from Johnsons’ Redditch showroom have moved to the firm’s Solihull outlet about 14 miles away.

The Solihull Volvo site is now home to 21 members of staff from Redditch and the transition of the business has brought with it more than 100 years of expertise in dealing with the Swedish brand.

The familiar faces from Redditch, including Nigel Moore, service manager; Richard Thorpe, general sales manager; and Lynn Cook, sales advisor, are all looking forward to welcoming customers to the state-of-the-art Solihull premises.

Existing Redditch customers continuing to use Johnsons for servicing will now benefit from the free collection and delivery of their vehicles.

Mark Perkins, franchise director for Johnsons Volvo, said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to welcome the Redditch team to our Solihull site. They are a great team who have built an outstanding reputation for customer loyalty and satisfaction in the local area and they all bring a huge passion for the Volvo brand with them.

‘Redditch customers can be assured that they will continue to enjoy the high levels of service they are used to receiving from the wider Johnsons team at our modernised showroom.’


In 2015, Johnsons Solihull was one of the first Volvo dealerships in the UK to invest in a new purpose-built facility as part of the Volvo Retail Experience (VRE) programme, a global brand standard that Volvo Car UK is rolling out across its dealer network.
