Business expansion brings jobs to Portsmouth.

28 March 2018

Up to 16 new jobs are set to be created in Portsmouth, as our Commercial Vehicles department unveils plans to expand and move to new premises. This major development is set to strengthen Breeze Motor Group’s presence within the region.

Breeze Motor Group is relocating from its current Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Service Centre in Hilsea to a new 1.3-acre dedicated site at Dunsbury Park, allowing the capacity to sell Volkswagen’s Das Welt Auto used commercial vehicle range as well as continuing to provide a Service Centre.

Mark Langford, Managing Director at Breeze Motor Group, said: “This is a very exciting development for us. Portsmouth is vitally important to our business strategy as it geographically extends our offering on commercial vehicle expertise from Dorchester to Chichester. We have operated our current service centre in Portsmouth for five years, to great success, but business demand has required us to revisit our offering.”

The new premises will provide 10 workshop ramps, including a VOSA accredited MOT testing area for class four and seven commercial vehicles and a forecourt display for over 60 used vehicles.

Mark added: “We will be more than doubling our existing workforce. We will initially recruit a sales manager followed by other individuals specialising in sales and services. In the future, we will be looking at growing our team further by supporting our current apprenticeship programme. Dunsbury Park is a hugely significant and unrivalled business area. It’s ideally located and space enables us to create a purpose-built commercial vehicle centre enabling the business to enter new markets and provide a more comprehensive service for van operators.”

Work on the new site is expected to begin in June 2018, with the Portsmouth used van centre planning to open for business in November 2018. The existing Volkswagen Portsmouth Van Service Centre, on Nevil Shute Road Hilsea, will remain operational throughout the development.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
