BRAMPTON, ON, June 13, 2019 /CNW/ - When the first shovels went into the earth at an auto mall in Brampton, the Zanchin Automotive Group took another step forward in its continuous growth as one of Canada's largest automotive dealership groups. The ground-breaking signified the start of construction for Jaguar Land Rover Brampton – which is expected to open its doors in the summer of 2020. When it does, the new luxury dealership will become the first facility owned and operated by the group to bear historic Jaguar and Land Rover logos.
"Jaguar and Land Rover are iconic, automotive brands with deep heritage and incredibly passionate owners, making it the perfect addition to our group of dealerships," said Joseph Zanchin, Founder and CEO of Zanchin Automotive Group. "Since the company started with a single dealership 46-years ago, we have always differentiated ourselves by our dedication to giving our customers both a rewarding shopping and ownership experience – one that exceeds their expectations. The entire team is eager to apply that philosophy and approach in a way that properly honours the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in the Brampton community."
"We welcome the Zanchin Automotive Group to the Jaguar Land Rover family," said Wolfgang Hoffmann, President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover Canada. "Jaguar Land Rover is driven by a desire to deliver class-leading vehicles, and an ownership experience that customers will love. In speaking with the team at the Zanchin Automotive Group, it's clear they share that same commitment and motivation to continuously elevate what customers can expect from an automotive company. I look forward to joining the celebration when the doors to Jaguar Land Rover of Brampton open for the first time."
"Brampton is vibrant, growing and full of prospering communities because business leaders like Joseph Zanchin and his team recognize the incredible economic opportunity this city represents," said Patrick Brown, Mayor of Brampton. "I would like to extend my congratulations to the team at Zanchin Automotive Group for a successful ground-breaking and send them my best wishes for the construction."
Jaguar Land Rover Brampton was designed by architectural firm Weis LGA INC. in a way that complements the luxury cars and SUV's the dealership will sell and service. The new 55,000 square-foot facility will include a spacious showroom for up to 19 vehicles, a luxury customer lounge, and a state-of-the-art service facility with 21 bays. Once fully operational, the new dealership will add 77 new jobs to the 410-Mayfield Auto Mall in Brampton. With the ground-breaking, construction has officially begun.
