Vospers is delighted to announce the acquisition of the A J Blackler premises at 141 Newton Road, Torquay and will continue to operate it as a Peugeot dealership.
The site began trading under the Vospers name from 1st January 2013 and Vospers are happy to be able to increase their exposure in the Torquay area. Alongside this, Vospers already has a Peugeot dealership in Plymouth.
With over 60 years of trading in the South West, Vospers is a family run business which provides a one stop shop for motorists with a choice of 11 marques across the South West.
Vospers are pleased to welcome virtually all of the Torquay Peugeot team to the Vospers family, which means that customers can expect the same high level of quality service from familiar faces. Tim Morris, A J Blacklers’ General Manager has decided to retire, and we would like to wish him luck for the future. In his place, Bob Parkinson, who is the current Peugeot Sales Manager in Plymouth has been appointed as the new General Manager at Torquay.
Darran Webber is the New and Used Sales Manager at the new Vospers Peugeot dealership and has been working at the site for 28 years.
Darran said, “I am delighted to join the Vospers family. The retaining of the sites’ current employees means that Vospers is able to maintain the Peugeot expertise of the workforce and the current high level of customer service as well as now providing the strength and support backup of a large regional business”.
Vospers also welcomes A J Blacklers’ Newton Abbott customers, both Peugeot and Renault, and will become authorised Renault repairers in the future. As well as the acquisition, Vospers has also moved their Ford and Fiat service reception to Vospers’ existing site at 108 Newton Road.
Peugeot vehicles, as well as all other makes and models of vehicles will continue to be serviced and repaired at 141 Newton Road.
Peter Vosper, Chairman at Vospers said, “Vospers are delighted to welcome all A J Blackler customers, including Peugeot and Renault customers from Newton Abbot and we will continue to look after you all in the future”.
Peter Vosper’s father started the business and Peter’s son Nick is now Managing Director. Vospers have won many awards over the years for our customer satisfaction and with over 600 employees we like to treat our customers as one of the family.
