Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot importers in Ireland, has appointed Kevin Egan Cars, Carraroe, Sligo, to the Peugeot dealer network.
The appointment comes as building works commence on a green-field site in Carraroe that will see the development of a new 850 sq ft showroom to house the Peugeot franchise. Fronted by business partners Kevin Egan and Mark Walsh, Kevin Egan Cars is now open for business, currently stocking the full line-up of Peugeot passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, with a selection of quality used cars for sale.
Des Cannon, Managing Director at Gowan Distributors said: “I am so pleased with the appointment of Kevin Egan Cars to the Peugeot network. Their flair for customer service excellence has brought them deserved recognition as one of the best independent retailers in the country, before their appointment to the Peugeot franchise. Kevin and Mark and their team are very highly motivated individuals who bring great energy to the table; indeed their enthusiasm is infectious. I have every confidence we will work very well together, to increase our market share in Sligo.”
Kevin Egan, Dealer Principal said: “The Peugeot franchise really piqued our interest over the course of the last 12 months and we believe it’s a really good fit for us. The new SUV line up, including the new Peugeot 3008 SUV, just crowned Irish Car of the Year 2018, together with the excellent van range, will undoubtedly bring us new custom. We very much look forward to 2018 with confidence.”
