Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot Importers in Ireland, have been on the lookout for a new dealer in Galway since the closure of Arch Motors last year. This week they announced the appointment of Kenny Galway to the Peugeot Dealer Network.
Kenny Galway was established in 1992 and in 2003 the family-run business relocated to its new premises on the Tuam Road, on the outskirts of Galway, where significant investment was made in both customer facilities and staff.
The extensive facilities and 520 sq m showroom will exhibit the full range of award-winning Peugeot passenger cars and light commercial vehicles on sale from now.
A 12-bay workshop is staffed by highly qualified technicians who offer servicing for all makes and models for both passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.
Dealer Principal, Brian Kenny said: “The success of Kenny Galway to date is down to our team of highly experienced and committed staff who are totally dedicated to giving the best customer care possible, both in sales and aftersales. I am very pleased to join the Peugeot Dealer Network and I look forward to working with the team at Gowan Distributors Limited.”
Speaking at the signing of contracts, Managing Director at Gowan Distributors Limited, Des Cannon said: “Gowan Distributors Limited has a long standing history in Ireland, with a strong sense of community. Since 1969 we’ve partnered with our Dealer Network, working alongside Irish family-run motor businesses.
“Our latest appointment, Kenny Galway, is a fine example of one such Dealer, long-recognised for providing superior sales and service to the Galway community with integrity, reliability and the utmost professionalism. I wish Brian and his team every success for the future as Main Peugeot Dealers.”
Meanwhile, Bradley Renault, Galway have expanded their showroom space with the acquisition of the former Renault Showrooms on the Tuam Road in Galway.
Bradley Motors, who are also main dealers for Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar in Galway, took over the Renault and Dacia franchise following the closure of Galway Renault and have since seen market share rise.
Following this success, they are in need of more space for the Renault and Dacia brands and have acquired the former Renault showrooms on the Tuam Road.
Speaking to the Connacht Tribune, Robert Bradley, Dealer Principal said: “We simply need the extra space and customers are familiar with the Tuam Road site. We will operate from there as a sales venue only; the service department will remain at our anchor premises on the Dublin Road.”
