Colbornes are on the move
February 23, 2012
Thanks to our loyal customers and the undoubted strength of the Volkswagen product range we are proud to have been able to grow our current business to such a level that requires a bigger and more modern location.
The dealership will move from its current location on Slyfield Industrial Estate to a new position in Peasmarsh and will occupy state of the art premises on a 1.5 acre site. The new location will mean customers are able to enjoy a 13 vehicle showroom, 11 ramp aftersales facility, an outdoor display of 60 used vans and generous parking. The move will make access to Colbornes’ modern and welcoming premises easier than ever before.
Steve Cass, Head of Business says. "The Slyfield facility was a huge step forwards when we moved in here in 2002, but our continued growth over the years means that we are now ready to move to the next stage. I’m certain there will not be another Van Centre nearby where customers will be able to see so many vehicles in such convenient and comfortable surroundings. Add to that high levels of experience and customer care and we are certain to see our growth continue unabated"
With the relocation aiming to double existing sales figures, this means that we will be looking to increase our staff base. New jobs will be available within the modern and environmentally friendly dealership. Recruitment for staff has already begun and you can gain further information by visiting our careers site.
The relocation is due to be complete before summer 2012, We look forward to welcoming you to our new home very soon!
The Colbornes Group is a company with almost 70 years’ experience in the motor industry and is proud to have been the first importer of Volkswagen cars into the UK in 1949. We have since grown into one of the South East’s leading motor retailers.
The family-owned Colbornes Group changed ownership 7 years ago and after 62 successful years in Ripley, Surrey, Colborne Garages relocated to a new purpose built facility on the Slyfield Industrial Estate, Guildford.
