ROLLS-ROYCE is to open a showroom in Bristol next spring – creating 46 jobs.
This will be the super-luxury marque’s seventh dealership in the UK and will cover an area of more than 12,000 square miles stretching from Land’s End, through Wales and up to the Cotswolds.
It will be managed by Rybrook Holdings – the company’s second Rolls-Royce franchise, having operated Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Birmingham for a number of years.
Construction of the state-of-the-art showroom, which will have sales and aftersales facilities, is due to start at Cribbs Causeway next month.
James Crichton, regional director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Europe, said: ‘Rolls-Royce takes great care in selecting its dealer partners, and we’re delighted to be working alongside Rybrook as we open our seventh showroom in the UK. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Bristol will help us deliver further sustainable growth in the United Kingdom, and we are confident that our strengthened partnership with Rybrook will help us meet a clear demand in this part of the country for our super-luxury motor vehicles.’
Henry Whale, managing director of Rybrook said: ‘The opening of our new showroom in Bristol represents a significant investment for Rybrook at a time of growing confidence in the British economy. There are thousands of successful entrepreneurs and business leaders across the south-west, many of whom turn to Rolls-Royce for their personal transport. We are committed to delivering pinnacle standards in customer satisfaction as we look forward to launching in the first half of next year.’
