Blackshaws join SsangYong franchise

posted on 23/06/2022

SsangYong Motors UK is delighted to announce the addition of Blackshaws to its dealer network. The  SsangYong car showroom is conveniently located in Coopies Lane Industrial Estate in Morpeth, Northumberland.

Kevin Griffin, managing director at SsangYong Motor UK, said: “We are delighted to welcome an established dealer group, like Blackshaws, to the SsangYong franchise and to extend our representation in the northeast. The team has a long heritage, an outstanding reputation and wealth of experience and we look forward to introducing them to the SsangYong family.”

Blackshaws is a family-owned business founded in Alnwick, Northumberland over 100 years ago. Shortly after the end of the First World War, Blackshaws was one of the first places in Northumberland where you could go to buy an automobile. Brothers, and founders, John Charles and Edward Warren Blackshaw were quick to seize on the opportunity afforded by the early mass produced cars to establish their car sales business in Tower Lane, Alnwick.

Fast forward to 2022 and to strengthen its brand offering, Blackshaws has introduced SsangYong to its Morpeth showroom with its range of high quality SUVs, 4x4 towing vehicles and pick-ups including Tivoli, Korando, Rexton and the award-winning Musso.

The showroom has modern facilities and provides customers with an exceptional SsangYong retail experience, where customers can relax in comfort in the hospitality area and enjoy complementary refreshments as well as free Wi-Fi.

Will Blackshaw, managing director at Blackshaws, commented: “As the motor industry continues to evolve with rapidly changing technology, Blackshaws is filled with inspiration and excitement for the road ahead.  Although the company has grown significantly over the years it remains a friendly, family business routed in the local community with customer service as its number one priority. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional customer journey and developing strong relationships with our customers. We look forward to developing our relationship with SsangYong Motors and introducing its model line-up to Morpeth and surrounding areas.”
