(PRWEB) October 2, 2010
The motor industry on the North Shore received a big boost last week with the grand opening of North Harbour Hyundai’s world-class new dealership.
The Deputy Prime Minister, Hon Bill English officially opened the Takapuna premises last Thursday 23rd September.
The highly-developed new Auckland car dealership boasts the latest world trends in serving the owners of Hyundai vehicles.
“We are proud to bring this elevated level of premises and service to the North Shore,” commented Dealer Principal Dave Bonniface.
“We are making a significant commitment to the future of Hyundai in this region, one which our customers already recognise.
“The Hyundai brand is going from strength to strength and its model line-up is as exciting as it is innovative.”
Mr Bonniface, born and bred in Auckland, has been in the motor industry all his working life. He was joined at the opening by business partner Marg Kronfeld. Ms Kronfeld, born in the UK and raised on the North Shore, has had a successful career in finance and property.
The development of North Harbour Hyundai extends the dealership’s relationship with Hyundai Motors NZ which distributes through 23 locally owned and operated car dealerships in New Zealand.
“We know we are able to offer New Zealand owners the best experience with their vehicle purchase and operation, and the dramatic elevation of North Harbour Hyundai’s profile demonstrates that.”
