More Renault dealers

THE last three months has seen Renault appoint 12 new dealers – a move which follows the companys decision to close three of its own retail outlets and allow more resources to be available for expansion of an independent network.

Renault managing director Bob Humphrey is keen to emphasise that his company is committed to the UK. "We are here to stay. Dealers appreciate the security we offer. The uncertainty which exists regarding many manufacturers has been to our benefit, hence the 12 new dealers we have taken on."

Those dealers are from all parts of the UK and include the creation of two new outlets to take over areas covered by Renaults now closed Ludlow and Dunnington retail outlets. &#42
