Michael Moore Car Sales has been appointed sales and aftersales dealer for Skoda. An extensive business re-development programme will take place over the coming months which will result in a complete upgrade to the Athlone dealership and an extension of its showroom and facilities resulting in over 20 jobs.
Operating in Athlone since 1981, Michael Moore Car Sales is renowned for its long-standing expertise and top class customer service. Synonymous with the motor industry in the Midlands, Moores opened its doors under the stewardship of Michael Moore Senior back in 1972 as Michael Moore Car Sales in Portarlington. Since then it has grown to be one of the market leaders in the midlands area.
Westmeath motorists can now test drive the latest Skoda models including the new Superb which will be on show at Michael Moore Car Sales. This year sees Skoda undertake its biggest model launch in the company’s 117-year history and will continue with the Rapid Spaceback expected in the dealership in autumn this year.
Commenting on the appointment dealer principal Michael Moore Junior said “We are delighted to bring Skoda to the Athlone area. This is an exciting time for the brand having recently celebrated 20 years in Ireland. I have no doubt that the Skoda range will prove popular with Westmeath motorists and I am delighted to be the local dealer of choice for Skoda.”
John Donegan, brand director, Skoda Ireland, added: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Michael Moore Car Sales to the Skoda network. Michael Moore has been synonymous with motoring in the Westmeath area since 1981. Bringing them on board as our main dealer in the area is a fantastic endorsement of the Skoda brand. We are very much looking forward to working with the team at Michael Moore Car Sales to create greater awareness of what the Skoda range has to offer and continue to drive the brand from strength to strength.”
