Opel and Brooks to join forces once again

After three successful years of driving the wheels of business, Opel and building and DIY materials supplier, Brooks are joining forces once again to hosting a series of Breakfast & Exhibition mornings for trade customers across the country.

The events will take place on Thursday, November 1 and Thursday, November 15 at Brooks branches nationwide, including Bluebell, Glasnevin, Sandyford, Cork, Galway, Sligo and Tullamore.

Mark Lohan, Managing Director of Brooks explained that the idea is to offer more than just product information at these mornings: “We want to show our customers new products and new applications. We also want to go beyond the products and look to help our builders with their van selection. Opel will be on site in all our branches with the van range and related expert advice on van fit-outs, insurance, trailers, roof racks and van artwork, all over a nice breakfast and coffee. This has been a tremendous success over the past two years, with 2018 marking our fourth year in partnership with Opel, so we’re looking forward to building on that success once again this year.”

Gillian Whittall, General Manager of Opel Ireland said: “The continued success of the Brooks & Opel Exhibition mornings allows us a fantastic opportunity to showcase our commercial vehicle line up to the very captive audience of Brooks customers nationwide. By bringing the vehicles to the seven Brooks locations across the country, we have an ideal platform to demonstrate the features of our commercial vehicle range without busy tradespeople having to take time out of their day. We’re bringing the Opel dealership to them so to speak!”

All those who attend the events will be in with the chance to win a brand new Opel Vivaro, with a finalist from each of the seven Brooks branches taking home a weekend break for two. Visitors also have the opportunity to avail of free paneling on all Opel Vivaro models ordered at their local dealership until December 31 2018.
