Just a few weeks ago, we told you about the award-winning Kia plant in Georgia. This is just one piece of the global growth and success Kia is experiencing, and we're not just saying that because we see so many happy Kia customers here at Turner Kia in Harrisburg, PA. There are happy drivers all over the globe, and there are about to be many more in the United Kingdom!
Yup! It's time to expand in Collindale, North London. The $1.6 million investment from Kia Motors (UK) Limited is part of the ever-growing dealer network in the country. The 15-car showroom will also feature a seven-bay workshop, a large Kia parts department, and a dedicated customer service area. It's formerly a parking garage, and the company managing the showroom (Humming Bird Kia) will use the top three levels for vehicle storage.
Simon Hetherington, Dealer Development Director at Kia Motors UK, explains, "This remarkable new dealership will reflect our strategy of expanding and improving our dealer network in the same way as Kia has built its brand and its product range in recent years."1 This is an especially important project in North London, as real estate is tight, and buyers in the area are constantly in need of affordable transportation opportunities. In moving closer to the city, Humming Bird Kia hopes to more than double their annual vehicle sales.
Sounds pretty cool, doesn't it? Well, we're sure it will be, but you don't have to go to North London to see the ever-expanding new Kia inventory. All you have to do is pop into the Turner Kia showroom at 4201 Chambers Hill Rd Harrisburg, PA 17111, and a member of our team is happy to give you a tour of any of the models you're interested in.
