23 July 2013 – Nanaimo, BC
We are pleased to announce the opening of our new state-of-the-art BMW Nanaimo dealership on Kenworth Road. More than 11,000 sq. ft. designed by Plaston Architects and Dehoog Kierloof are waiting to dazzle even the most discriminating automotive enthusiast.
Planning of the dealership began in 2010 after the German Auto Import Network purchased the BMW Dealership in Victoria BC. Chris Erb headed Superb Construction and the construction of the new BMW Dealership started in June of 2012. The quality of work and attention to every detail has been excellent throughout, and a true partnership was formed in building this state-of-the-art dealership.
The German Auto Import Network screened and interviewed 120 people in order to select the 16 individuals that became the start-up team for the BMW Dealership in Nanaimo. The dealer groups’ Victoria Dealerships, under the leadership of Carl Munro, a long term training professional in Canada, have trained and guided those individuals over the last 90 days in order to bring them up to speed in everything the group and BMW Canada demands from their employees. Most importantly they have been taught to understand the level of service that is expected of them to satisfy the needs and wishes of the approximately 1,500 BMW clients that already own a BMW in this part of Vancouver Island.
We welcome everyone in to our new home and hope it will be as inspiring to you as it is to us. Our community is perfect for many activities including bicycling, skiing, boating, hiking, and kayaking and are perfectly suited for the lineup of BMW all-wheel drive and sport activity models that we have in store for you. We are confident that our new dealership and staff will make a difference in the passion of our current and future BMW clients. Our dealership is meant to be the home for fellow enthusiasts that appreciate performance and style as much as German quality and the spirit of the “The Ultimate Driving Experience”.
