A £1.5million investment at the new Central Skoda retailer in Birmingham will create 18 new jobs and bring the Manufacturer of Happy Drivers to the north of the city.
The dealership which opens on Tyburn Road on 21st July 2008 will offer a full range of Skoda models including the brand new Skoda Superb which will be launched in September 2008.
A priority service scheme will also be available which means that as the vehicle gets older, the servicing becomes more economical, giving motorists more value throughout the life of the car.
As well as providing servicing for all makes, Central Skoda will offer over 100 used cars and a tyre, exhaust and MOT centre.
Retailer Principal, Mike Byrne, is a fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry and has invested in the new dealership because of his belief in Skoda. He comments: “The Skoda brand keeps growing due to its focus on customer satisfaction and I’m really pleased to be a part of that. The product range is also expanding as the brand’s reputation continues to thrive so I’m excited about the future.”
Mike, who has a keen interest in rugby in both Ireland and the UK, inherited his passion for the game from his father who played at the top level. His passion for Skoda also comes from his family, as his younger brother owns two dealerships in Bedford and Letchworth.
“You could say that Skoda is in my blood,” adds Mike. “I have had plenty of support and advice from my brother, for which I’m very grateful.”
