The company says it has appointed “several high-profile professionals” locally to deal with an increased demand for its vehicles.

Discussing the firm’s plans for 2019, marketing manager Jason West commented: “We have mastered our process as a business by providing the customer with a highly professional experience.
“It’s now my job to ensure that we continue to maintain and develop our relationship with new, existing and future customers by building value in our social media channels and adapting to the way the consumer likes to interact.”
He added: “You can expect to see a lot more of us on Instagram and Facebook this year”
