SsangYong Motors UK has announced Platinum Motor Group as a new retailer in Frome, Somerset.

Platinum Motor Group was founded in Frome in 1976. The business, which represents several automotive brands has expanded steadily, establishing itself as one of the leading automotive players in the south-west of England.

The Platinum Group ethos is to employ specialists in the fields of car purchasing, information technology, finance, personnel and aftersales ensuring that the process of continuous improvement is sustained. The policy ensures high quality and an efficient service by providing customers with the support of its highly skilled and committed staff.

Nick Laird, managing director at SsangYong Motors UK, said; “SsangYong Platinum is an outstanding dealer, and we are delighted that they have joined the SsangYong family. The Platinum Group has a superb reputation in the south-west, and we look forward to a positive and professional working relationship with them.”

In 2019, the Platinum Group underwent a relocation project for some of its brands, making way for SsangYong Motors UK at its site in Frome.

Ollie Broughton, of Platinum SsangYong, said; "We endeavour to provide a high quality of service to all of our customers by employing highly trained, motivated staff, which I believe is the key to our success. We are sure this success will continue with the SsangYong brand – we’ve been impressed with the new products coming from Korea, and with an industry leading 7-year warranty, so we are delighted to add SsangYong to our portfolio. We think our customers will be impressed too.”
