Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe has recently announced that the current South East England dealer Ernest Doe & Sons has extended their territory with the addition of West Sussex, Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
Ernest Doe is the longest serving Hyundai dealer in the UK and have been supplying the full-line of Hyundai equipment to their customers since 1991.
The territory extension will offer local Hyundai customers enhanced sales, service and parts coverage through Ernest Doe’s extensive network of outlets.
Hyundai approached Ernest Doe when Selwood announced their plans to move away from machinery sales to solely rental. Ernest Doe & Sons Sales Director, Graham Parker spoke about the expansion and what this means for the company moving forward: “When we were contacted by Hyundai we saw it was an opportunity for us to expand our area – we have an existing branch of Ernest Doe in West Sussex, therefore it was a natural progression for us to grow the business in that area.
"However, Hampshire was brand new to us and in the short time we have been in the area we have had very good feedback from existing Hyundai customers - Scott Hamilton who is our sales manager at the West Sussex dealership - has been in contact with many of them and we have already conducted service work and part sales.
“We are currently looking to recruit additional service technicians for the new areas. In relation to parts we have introduced a dedicated direct construction parts ‘hotline’ which comes straight into our head office at Ulting, Essex. We have an excellent parts team here with years of experience who know every nut and bolt of a Hyundai!”
In terms of Hyundai machines, the new HX130 is particularly favoured by Ernest Doe and the company have sold quite a number of these machines since their arrival in the UK in May of this year.
