TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Mercedes-Benz Canada is pleased to announce that the extensive renovations at its retail facility in Mississauga are now complete. Conveniently located on Mavis Road just south of Highway 401, the newly expanded dealership remained open to customers throughout the entire renovation process. Last night, customers, staff and Mercedes-Benz Canada executives gathered at an event to celebrate the grand re-opening of the modern new facility and enjoyed their first opportunity to tour the building.
Consistent with the standards set for the nationwide retail network, the layout of Mercedes-Benz Mississauga adheres to the proprietary Mercedes-Benz "Autohaus" concept. Trademark characteristics of this style include an open concept design and the use of glass to maintain transparency throughout the structure.
The recent expansion builds on this strong foundation. The bright, expansive showroom and new indoor Pre-Owned showroom feature a considerable display area that can accommodate over 20 cars. The dealership is a designated AMG Performance Centre and smart centre, and the renovations have also added three additional service bays that are able to accommodate Mercedes-Benz Sprinters.
Over the last eight years, Mercedes-Benz Mississauga has developed a loyal client base and strong ties within the community. As the highest performing Pre-owned Mercedes-Benz store in Canada, the creation of the new indoor Pre-owned showroom was a crucial element for future growth. The renovation and expansion also provided the space to hire additional sales and support staff to better serve the unique needs of customers. This significant investment in modernizing the Mississauga dealership asserts the company's commitment to the area, and also provides an ideal platform to further expand business in this important region.
"Our global promise is to ensure that the three pointed star always represents an uncompromising ambition to lead, and this philosophy is not limited to just our fascinating product range," said Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada. "As the primary point of contact with our valued customers, it is imperative that our retail facilities also reflect this brand strategy. Mercedes-Benz Mississauga is one of the top performing retail facilities in our network. The expansion of the Mississauga dealership, and the continued corporate and dealer investment in our national network demonstrates our continued and unwavering commitment to providing an unmatched ownership experience. Our customers can always trust that we follow our founder's principle: "The best or nothing."
