Construction begins on Western Canada's latest Porsche Centre
KELOWNA, BC, July 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. (PCL), along with the Wyant Group, officially broke ground on the newest location of a future Porsche Centre in Canada, Porsche Centre Kelowna. Located at Finns Road and Stremel Road, just off of Highway 97, Porsche Centre Kelowna has a planned opening of Q1 2017 with a nine car showroom, new vehicle delivery experience location, and 10 bay workshop.
"Kelowna marks an area of strong potential for the Porsche brand and we are glad that Vaughn Wyant and the Wyant Group are going to be taking care of our loyal, growing customer base in the area," said Alexander Pollich, President and CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. "Kelowna is an exciting opportunity for Porsche Canada and we are positive that it will show strength within our developing network."
Porsche Centre Kelowna will represent the eighth Porsche Centre in Western Canada, making the split from Western to Eastern Canada nearly identical. When Porsche Centre Kelowna opens it will be the Wyant Group's second location (along with Porsche Centre Saskatchewan).
"Breaking the ground on Porsche Centre Kelowna symbolically represents more than just where the next opportunity for the Wyant Group will be built, but it also marks where we will be committed to fostering new relationships and delivering service beyond expectations to the surrounding community," said Vaughn Wyant, President and CEO, Wyant Group.
Porsche Cars Canada, an independent subsidiary of Porsche AG, imports and distributes Porsche vehicles in Canada. The company employs a team of 36 in sales, aftersales, finance, marketing, and public relations. Last calendar year, Porsche sold an unprecedented 6,413 units in Canada, up 30% over 2014.
