Mitsubishi sell Auckland dealerships

Mitsubishi sell Auckland dealerships

The sale of four Kirk Motors dealerships to independent operators has been confirmed by Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand Ltd.

Managing director John Leighton said that the Newmarket and North Shore dealerships had been sold to Landseer Motor Group which is headed by Andrew Simms, who already operates the successful Mitsubishi dealership in Christchurch and has interests in Dunedin too.

The change of ownership takes effect on 1 July.

Auckland Motors Ltd will take control of the Waitemata and Manurewa branches of Kirk Motors on 1 May. They already operate a successful outlet on the Great North Road.

“Mitsubishi Motors will continue to own the sites,” Mr Leighton said, “but retailing is not our core business. We will continue to focus of marketing and distribution of vehicles.

“We also intend to sell the Kirk Motors branches in Wellington and the Hutt Valley in the future,” he said.
