A £2.4 million investment at Farnell Land Rover Bradford has led to a full renovation at the retailer on King’s Road, off Canal Road.

It features an 11-bay technician workshop, MOT bay, display space for 50 approved-used cars, additional customer parking spaces, barista bar, a fully air-conditioned showroom and a dedicated handover area.

Additional electric charging points have also been installed at the retailer to accommodate recently released electric and plug-in hybrid Jaguar Land Rover models including the Range Rover Evoque PHEV.

The retailer, off Canal Road, also has a new senior team to drive business forward in the new look retailer.

John Steele joins as head of business. A motor retail professional with more than 25 years’ experience John joined Vertu Motors plc as head of business for Gordon Lamb Chesterfield Land Rover. His role has grown to encompass Farnell Land Rover Bradford.

Simon Davis has been appointed as brand manager. He joined the company five years ago as general sales manager at Farnell Land Rover Nelson. In 2017 he was named sales manager of the year and has since progressed to his current position at Farnell Land Rover Bradford.

John Steele, head of business at Farnell Land Rover Bradford, said: “I am pleased that we can now showcase the new Farnell Land Rover Bradford retailer.

“This was a significant investment for the group and has demonstrated confidence in Bradford and it’s economy. Farnell Land Rover Bradford is home to some superb luxury cars, and I know our customers will be thrilled with the equally prestigious site.”

Jatinder Singh Aujla, group operations director at Farnell Land Rover, said: “As Bradford is my hometown, I am very proud of the new retailer here.

“One of the additional benefits of the refurbishment is that it has created a more spacious environment to better support social distancing measures.

“The site is state-of-the-art, and embodies the luxury, unrivalled experience our customers will receive. I look forward to welcoming customers, new and old, to Farnell Land Rover Bradford.”

Notes to editors:

Vertu Motors plc (which trades under the Bristol Street Motors, Macklin Motors, Vertu Toyota, Vertu Honda, Vertu Volkswagen, Vertu Mercedes-Benz, Vertu Kia and Farnell Jaguar Land Rover brands) was formed in late 2006 to acquire and consolidate UK motor retail businesses. The group was founded as a new entrant into the UK motor retail sector and is listed on the AIM market (UK:VTU).

In 2017, the Group became the first major UK motor retailer to offer customers the ability to purchase a used vehicle entirely online with the launch of Bristol Street Motors Buy Online. The platform enables customers to buy a used vehicle in as little as five minutes if they have the funds in place, arrange financial packages if they don’t, and have the vehicle delivered to any UK mainland home address.

Since flotation in December 2006, the Group has established itself as a major player in the United Kingdom automotive retail sector. The Group currently operates 133 franchised sales outlets and 3 non-franchised sales operations, representing 24 manufacturers, from 110 locations across the UK.
