Perrys expands in Dover with new Ford dealership

Perrys Motor Sales is expanding its business in Dover with a new Ford car dealership and van centre.  The company was granted planning permission by Dover District Council in December 2017 for a new showroom, offices, workshop and MOT facility, alongside its existing Vauxhall dealership at Whitfield.   The new Ford dealership will create an additional 22 jobs.

Perrys is one of the oldest and largest independent dealer groups in the UK with 51 new car showrooms.  The business was founded by Harold Perry in 1908, and in 1912 was appointed as Ford’s main dealer for London.  Perrys has been trading in Dover since 2001.

Construction of the new dealership at Honeywood Road is expected to start this summer and will be open in early spring 2019.

The plans to expand the Perrys business in Dover comes at a time of renewed investment at Whitfield, including a new Lidl supermarket, and the Honeywood Retail Park with B&M Home Store, Pets at Home, Bensons for Beds, and KFC.

A new TradeMarq trade park is also nearing completion featuring trade units for Action Carpets and Eurocell, along with a Subway.  Construction is also underway on a new Lokn’Store self-storage facility. 

Whitfield will also be home to the new £26m Dover District Leisure Centre being built by Dover District Council and due to open in early 2019.
