St. Petersburg, Russia – Bentley Motors is expanding its dealer network in the growing Russian market, opening a new showroom in St. Petersburg. The new showroom is the company’s third dealership in Russia; the other two are in Moscow.
The St. Petersburg location is in an emerging business area that is one of the fastest growing for luxury goods. The new showroom includes a parts warehouse, service centre and body shop, and will include the company’s entire range.
“With the opening of Bentley St. Petersburg, we are continuing our successful growth in Russia, which has become our second-largest market in Continental Europe after Germany,” said Michael Mayer, Regional Director Europe. “With Mercury Group we have found the ideal partner and are now able to offer our many existing and potential customers in St. Petersburg the level of sales and after-sales service they expect from us.”
Mayer also announced that a new Bentley service centre will be opened in Krasnodar at the end of the second quarter of 2008. The company sold more than 200 vehicles in Russia in 2007.
