Plaque unveiled as Snows Volvo celebrates its 40th birthday!

Our Snows Volvo dealership in Winchester has celebrated its fortieth anniversary with the Swedish manufacturer by unveiling a commemorative plaque.

Snows Volvo Winchester, in London Road, Kings Worthy, welcomed Volvo’s UK Managing Director, Kristian Elvefors, to the ceremony at the showroom, which was also attended by Snows CEO Stephen Snow and a number of other senior managers from both companies.

The dealership is one of two Volvo outlets run by Snows; the other being 20 miles away in Southampton. The businesses are going from strength to strength thanks to the excellent cars in the Volvo range and the great levels of customer service delivered at both sites.

Heading up the team in Winchester are Mark Austin, Volvo Franchise Manager; Adam Street, Sales Manager; and Ben Smith, Aftersales Manager. Great new Volvo cars such as the XC40 and XC60 are available, as well as a wide choice of used vehicles plus MOT and servicing facilities.

Stephen Snow said: ‘‘We are incredibly proud of the two Volvo dealerships in our portfolio and our Winchester showroom is particularly special to us because it has been part of Snows Group since the very early days of the company.

‘‘We truly value our partnership with Volvo and we have had a terrific 40 years together. This landmark clearly demonstrates the strength of our relationship and we’re delighted that Kristian Elvefors was able to join us to mark the occasion.’’

Mr Elvefors said: ‘‘It’s a pleasure to join the celebrations as Snows Volvo Winchester marks its 40th anniversary with us. A relationship of that length is clearly significant. Snows are true to our brand and we look forward to our partnership continuing for many years to come.’’

Snows Motor Group operates more than 50 car dealerships, five Approved Service Centres and two Used Car Centres across the South of England. In addition to Volvo, the company represents brands such as BMW, MINI, Mazda, Toyota and Peugeot.
