Bandon Motors To Become Peugeot Dealers

The year has kicked off in fine style for Gowan Auto Peugeot with the company announcing the appointment of Bandon Motors to the Peugeot Network of Ireland, for New Vehicle Sales and After-Sales.

Speaking of the appointment of Bandon Motors, Des Cannon, Managing Director of Peugeot in Ireland said, “We look forward to the partnership and we are delighted to welcome such a well-respected Dealership on board to represent the Peugeot brand in Bandon and the surrounding area. With all the changes coming to the Motor Industry in the years ahead, it is vital to have strong partners.  We feel, with this addition, we have further solidified our Peugeot Dealer Network in Ireland.

Bandon Motors are planning to develop their current site on the Clonakilty Road in Bandon, which will see the Peugeot brand operate from a dedicated, newly constructed showroom. A well-established family run business, Bandon Motors was founded in 1988 and is a major part of the business community in West Cork.  Employing a team of 30 across the business, Bandon Motors mission is to provide customers with the best vehicle purchasing and ownership experience possible.

Bob Clarke, Dealer Principal, said, ‘We are very proud to have secured the Peugeot franchise in the Cork region. As a business we pride ourselves on our customer-first approach. We have proudly served the people of Cork over the course of the last 35 years and look forward to continuing to do so, representing the Peugeot brand in the area’.  

Kevin Barry, Finance Director, said, ‘This is a positive step for Bandon Motors. We are excited to represent the Peugeot brand in Cork and look forward to providing our valued customers with the full suite of Peugeot products and services including sales, service, parts and flexible finances packages tailored to each individual customer’s requirements.
