• Arnold Clark ŠKODA opened its doors this month
  • 22 new members of staff recruited from local area

This new year, Arnold Clark ŠKODA on Phoenix Retail Park in Paisley, opened its doors as a full Sales Retailer and Authorised Repairer for ŠKODA vehicles.

The new ŠKODA dealership, which has seen at least 22 new jobs created in the local area, will provide a much-needed boost to the local economy. It also puts the fantastic ŠKODA range on Paisley’s doorstep for the first time.

David Ewart, General Manager at the dealership comments: “We’re extremely excited about bringing ŠKODA to the area. ŠKODA has had an amazing year, winning awards and even setting a new speed record in Bonneville over the summer, so we’re certain this new franchise will be a fantastic investment for Arnold Clark and for the area. We see ourselves as a local business, so we truly feel that our success means success for the community too.

“Just as it is for ŠKODA, our whole company ethos is rooted in offering genuine value for money and high levels of customer satisfaction, so we’re a perfect match.”

The dealership will operate as a triple franchise, with a nine car showroom and room for 130 used cars on site.

Duncan Movassaghi, Head of Operations at ŠKODA UK comments: “We are investing heavily in developing our retailer network across the UK, and are delighted to expand with Arnold Clark. Our aim is to make our award-winning cars available to customers up and down the country, so we’re delighted that ŠKODA is now in Paisley.

 In 2011 alone, ŠKODA received numerous top awards including Auto Express ‘Car of the Year’ for the Yeti as well as the Which Car? Award for ‘Best Car Manufacturer’, whilst just last month the ŠKODA Superb was awarded Best Estate Car 2011 by Diesel Car magazine.
