Rolls-Royce opens new showroom in Russia
Goodwood, England – Rolls-Royce has officially opened a new dealership in St. Petersburg, Russia. It is the second showroom for the company in that country.
The grand opening was marked by a cannon shot from the Petropavlovskaya fortress, which is traditionally done to signal important events in the city.
“We are delighted to open for business in St. Petersburg, with this outstanding new showroom,” says Ian Robertson, Chairman and CEO of Rolls-Royce. “Russia is a very important market for Rolls-Royce in continental Europe and we anticipate further growth, making it a key part of our future development plans.” With the new showroom, the company has 19 dealerships in continental Europe.
