Johnson & Perrott joins with SEAT

Johnson & Perrott Motor Group have acquired Cashman Car Sales, an established SEAT dealership based in Midleton, Co Cork since 1985, writes Trish Whelan. They will continue to operate the business from the existing site on the Cork Road, Midleton until mid-2018 when the franchise will relocate to the  Johnson & Perrott Mahonpoint premises beside the Mahon Point Shopping Centre and Business Park.

Johnson & Perrott officially join the SEAT dealer network this month and are already working with the team in Midleton in showcasing the latest SEAT models for 2018.

Founded in 1810, John & Perrott Motor Group is one of the country's leading motor retailers and is owned by members of the Whitaker family, 5th and 6th generation descendants of James Johnson who purchased the business in 1860. Mr Johnson led the company's venture into the world of automobiles in 1903 when he sold his very first motor car. Today, having recently passed its 200th anniversary, the Group has interests in vehicle hire, motor dealerships and fleet management.

Niall Phillips said the addition of Johnson and Perrott Motor Group to their dealer network 'is a real coup for the brand'. "They are an organisation synonymous with the motor industry and their experience and expertise will be of tremendous benefit to SEAT in what is an exciting period for us."
