In early May 2013, Volvo Group AME Southern Africa, along with Super Group, will open its first multi-franchise dealership in Rustenburg, North West province.
North West Trucks will be the first dealership in the world to have UD Trucks, Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks conveniently located under one roof. According to Iain McCabe, Volvo Trucks’ general manager of retail development, this development forms part of the company’s on-going dealer expansion plan and to increase the reach of its dealer network.
“We believe that this new dealership will also provide our customers in the region with more options when it comes to maintaining their trucks, as North West Trucks will be open to all Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks business,” said McCabe. “Vehicle sales will still be handled from the Jet Park Truck Centre.”
McCabe said that the establishment of this multi-franchise dealership has been made possible through a high level of cooperation by the retail development departments at Volvo Trucks and UD Trucks head office.
Super Group Dealerships are acknowledged experts in the field of automotive retailing and hold 23 different automotive franchises in Gauteng and North West.
