Hawkins Motor Group, a Cornish family business established in 1933, has announced the acquisition of Town & Country Nissan after acquiring the company at the start of the year.
Town & Country has been a familiar name in Cornwall with the family business representing Nissan for more than 30 years at its dealership on the A30 at Marazanvose, near Truro.
The dealership – now known as ‘Town & Country by Hawkins’ is headed up by Dealer Principal Andrew Niven, pictured, who joined Hawkins having previously managed other dealerships within Cornwall and across the country.
He said: “I’m delighted to be joining Hawkins and especially Nissan. The brand has significance for me in that I started my automotive career with Nissan in Cornwall in the late 1980s. It’s great to be back!”
Hawkins Director Johnny Hawkins said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Town & Country to the Hawkins Motor Group.
‘‘Being a local family business, we share many of the same values and this is reflected by their great reputation and loyal, long-standing customers.
‘‘We would like to assure all Town & Country customers that they will continue to receive the same great service they have been accustomed to and that the familiar, friendly faces they know in the sales and service teams will be there as normal to look after them.”
Hawkins Director James Hawkins added: “We have some exciting plans to take the business and the Nissan brand further, the first of which is the opening of a second Nissan dealership in Penryn towards the beginning of next month which will coincide with a range of fantastic new Nissan models being launched throughout this year.”
