Local car dealer Mervyn Stewart is creating 20 new jobs with a new Skoda franchise.

The company, which is the largest Skoda dealership in Northern Ireland, will open the business between Bangor and Newtownards as part of a £2m investment. The new dealership will be based on a two acre site close to Conlig.

The company currently has its main dealership at Boucher Crescent in Belfast.

Stephen Stewart, managing director at Mervyn Stewart, said: "We have represented Skoda in Belfast for 15 years and we were delighted when we were given the opportunity to represent the brand in north Down.

"The success of the award-winning Skoda range has increased the market share, and it makes north Down an important territory for the brand and a great opportunity for further growth for Mervyn Stewart."

The business received funding for the expansion from Danske Bank. Ellen Matthews, business banking manager at Danske Bank, said: "Mervyn Stewart is one of the best-known family run businesses in Northern Ireland.

"It is a trusted dealership with a wealth of experience in the car market."
