Revealing the acquisition, Iveson said he was “delighted, excited, thrilled and equally filled with pride for the Livingstone team”.
He said the dealership has “masses of potential”, with its large forecourt, two showrooms and workshop.
“The renovation has alread begun to bring the location back to its glory,” Iveson added.
“What I even have learned is Broach Hill has a spot in the center of many. The location has been a dealership for over 50 years, serving many shoppers in a large area.
“The location has almost landmark status on a busy road.”
