With a decade of serving the local community under their bonnet, the Swansway Honda Group with dealerships in Stockport and Bolton is gearing up to celebrate its 10th birthday later this month.

Over the last 120 months, or 3,650 days, the group has been operating, they estimate they have sold nearly 10,000 cars to customers from Stockport and Bolton, many of them coming back time and time again.

And whilst selling cars has been their business focus, the Swansway Honda Group has ensured the local community is at the heart of its ethos and has made charitable giving an integral part of its operations.

Over the last ten years, the group has regularly donated money to local charities such as Francis HouseStockport Foster Carers Association and Stockport Without Abuse, as well as starting an annual tradition with their ‘Swansway Santa Patrol’, where members of both branches visit the local St Peter & St Paul’s Primary School in Bolton and the children’s ward at the Royal Bolton Hospital to give gifts to children during the festive period.

Despite the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 this year, the group hope to be able to continue this tradition next month, especially in such a milestone year.

In addition to this, both sites make quarterly donations to ‘Circus Starr; enabling a disabled child and their carer to go to world class, not-for-profit circus shows around the country. Since January 2016Swansway Honda have donated over £5,000 to the charity, by contributing £20 for every vehicle sold at a Swansway site on the Motability Scheme, working with children’s hospices and hospitals, Young Carers, foster children, SEN schools and Women’s Refuges to bring joy into the lives of children, who often have little to look forward to. 

Not only has the group showed their support to the local community, it boasts a fiercely loyal workforce, with over half (56%) of the current team having been there since its opening in 2010. The Swansway Bolton branch continues to grow its team and is proud to still have Master Technician, John Williamson, as avital part of its operations. John started off as an Apprentice Technician at Honda 40 years ago, working his way up the ranks to where he is now at the top of his field keeping the local Honda drivers of Bolton on the move. 

honda-blokeMaster Technician, John Williamson (pictured right) says, “My time at Honda has flown by. It’s hard to believe the advancements in the model range since I started in the 60’s as an apprentice technician, to the line-up we have today. The team I get to work with each day, and the working environments created by the Swansway Group, have made the last 40 years a joy.

David Smyth, Swansway Group Director, commented “It’s been a pleasure to see how the dealerships in Stockport and Bolton have grown over the years, and we’re delighted to see sales of cars nearing 10,000 across both locations – very apt to mark our 10 years of service! We are proud to be a part of bothcommunities and keeping everyone on the move, especially during the uncertainty we’ve all faced this year. Our long-serving team of dedicated sales and service specialists have really shone during this time, and we’re excited to welcome customers both new and old into the branches next month to celebrate this milestone with us”.

To mark the occasion, the Swansway Honda branches in Stockport and Bolton are launching a range of Black Friday offers to thank customers for their loyalty over the years, with test drives of the all new Honda e and the new and improved Honda Jazz available over the celebratory period.
