JOHN Clark Motor Group has opened a Volvo dealership in Dundee.
The showroom, at MacAdam Place in the city, replaces the previous Volvo outlet at Riverside Drive operated by Barnetts Motor Group, from whom John Clark acquired the franchise.
This Dundee opening enhances John Clark’s relationship with the brand, following the recent launch of Volvo Cars in Edinburgh.
Chris Clark, group managing director, said: ‘We are looking forward to opening a new home for Volvo Cars in Dundee and welcoming customers to the showroom, as well as some of the existing Volvo Dundee staff into the John Clark Motor Group.
‘They are a brilliant team of people and we intend to invest in further training to ensure they are confident with the products and the systems to ensure a seamless transition of the business.’
The new facility will be Volvo Dundee’s home for the next 12 months before it relocates to a new permanent home in Rutherford Road.
Paul Lanni, brand director, said: ‘I am personally very excited about the new dealership as we have a great team to work with, some brilliant products, such as the recently launched XC40 and V60, plus some exciting models planned for the future.
‘Opening a new site is very challenging and I am pleased to say that we have managed to achieve this in an incredibly tight timescale. I am fully confident that with the new team in place, the dealership will quickly be fully operational. We look forward to welcoming customers to a launch event in the very near future.’
Barnetts Motor Group continues to sell new Mazda and Volkswagen cars from its Riverside Drive site, as well as used vehicles.
