SsangYong Motors UK has appointed Tees Valley SsangYong to its nationwide dealer network.
Tees Valley changed its business structure in 2020. It had been a Mitsubishi franchise for 17 years, but this changed with the decision by the carmaker to pull the plug on new car sales in Europe.
Since then, it has added Subaru and Isuzu franchises and now SsangYong, whilst retaining the Mitsubishi aftersales franchise.
Kevin Griffin, managing director at SsangYong Motor UK, said: “We are delighted to welcome Tees Valley Motors to the SsangYong franchise and to extend our representation in the northeast.
“The team has a wealth of experience and an outstanding reputation which will ensure an excellent customer journey.”
Neal Gibson, managing director at Tees Valley SsangYong, said: “Here at Tees Valley Motors, we pride ourselves on providing an exceptional customer experience and also on retaining future business by developing strong relationships with our customers, indeed many have become good friends.
“Our staff are extremely loyal, with many being with us since we opened and there is always a friendly face to welcome customers, both new and old. We look forward to welcoming our customers and introducing them to the SsangYong brand.”
