A Pinchbeck car dealership is entering an exciting new era after sealing a deal with one of Europe’s top car makers.

Rylatt & Sons has agreed terms with French car firm Citroen to become its new dealer for south Lincolnshire just two years after starting to carry out repairs and servicing on Citroen cars.

Work has started on a new, purpose-built showroom in Elsoms Way and once it is completed in December, a number of new jobs are expected to be created for people in South Holland.

Paul Morfitt, general sales manager, said: “Our relationship with Citroen has been ongoing for about four or five years and we became a Citroen Authorised Repairer in 2011.

“But there was a gap in the market as nobody in the area is currently looking after Citroen sales, so they decided to go forward with us and we have a selection of cars in our showroom.”

Ahead of the new showroom opening, the firm is looking for a new sales executive with a belief that customer satisfaction is essential for the business to grow.

Director James Rylatt said: “The Citroen range of cars and vans has a wide-ranging appeal and there are currently some unbeatable marketing offers, including free insurance and free servicing on certain models.

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with the Citroen brand.”
