Windsor expands with acquisition of Agnelli Motor Park

Windsor has acquired Agnelli Motor Park, one of the largest family-owned motor dealerships in Dublin.

Agnelli Motor Park has been in operation since 2010 and recently moved into a new premises on the Airton Road in Tallaght.

The dealership has been run by Michael Kerslake, Edward Kenny and Frances Kerslake who are now stepping back from the business.

Windsor has retained all 14 employees and plans to grow the business, to create new jobs and to maintain and develop its high standard of customer sales and aftercare service as the main Peugeot and Suzuki dealers in south-west Dublin.

The dealership has been renamed as Windsor Airton and the newly opened premises includes modern showrooms, an aftercare workshop with 14 work bays, a dedicated outdoor light commercial vehicle display area, and a 90-vehicle forecourt.

“We are delighted to acquire such an established business, to strengthen our existing relationship with Peugeot and to add such a distinguished car brand as Suzuki to the growing range of car brands that Windsor sell and service,” said Peter Nicholson, managing director of Windsor.

Windsor has embarked on an ambitious growth strategy which has been underpinned by its ‘Motor Mall’ concept, which brings multiple car brands together under one roof.

The wide range of car brands that it offers now includes, Nissan, Renault, Dacia, Opel, Peugeot, Mazda, Citroen and Suzuki.

“Suzuki have ambitious plans to grow their market share in Ireland and we are excited to help them to realise that objective by continuing to broaden the choice of vehicles that we offer our customers,” said Mr. Nicholson.

Windsor is now one of the biggest Peugeot dealers operating in the Irish market and the new Windsor Airton dealership sits alongside its existing Peugeot dealerships in Airside, Clonee and Drogheda.

“My experience of working with Windsor has been extremely positive and they are certainly the right company to take our business forward,” said Michael Kerslake, managing director at Agnelli Motor Park.

“We are very proud of the great sales and aftersales team that we have built over the years, and we are delighted that Windsor is retaining every member of the team as it looks to the future,” he added.
