Dealer, SMC Motorhomes, which is in Newark, Nottinghamshire, has invested £1.75 million in a new showroom, workshops and customer lounge, as well as expanding its bodyshop and the space available for displaying used motorhomes and campervans for sale.

The dealer, which has franchises for Frankia, Globecar, Auto-Sleepers, Knaus, Pilote, Campster and Weinsberg, and is celebrating its fiftieth year in business, acquired premises next door to allow for the expansion into what is now a three-acre site with a 10-bay workshop, increased customer parking, customer lounges, a huge 50-vehicle showroom and a display area for treble the number of used vehicles outside.

“My father started the company as a vehicle repair centre serving the Newark area in 1971,” said SMC Managing Director, Gavin Briggs-Price. Now, 50 years on, it is expanding significantly. “We are immensely proud as a family to announce the acquisition of VW Centre Newark for redevelopment, significantly expanding our current operation.

“This will double our current footprint and enable us to grow our business substantially. The DNA of the SMC core values will remain – the customer experience is at the very heart of our business model.”
