A LUXURY car dealership is set to expand thanks to a multi-million pound investment.

Gemini-based Vanrooyen EPS is set to open a new dealership in Chester, driven by a £6m investment from Energize Capital and Alphera Financial Service and Management.

Founded in 2012 by Martin Rylands and supported by entrepreneur Steve Hibbert, the Europa Boulevard business now has a £14m turnover and 13 staff.

It is hoped that the new dealership, which will stock up to 150 cars, will double both of these figures.

Vanrooyen EPS had previously expanded into Leigh in 2014.

Chairman Steve said: "Martin has sold me many cars over the years and he always delivered excellent service.

"When he presented the business plan to me in 2012 I backed it immediately as the passion, flair and determination to succeed was evident, and their attention to detail and compliance procedures are first class.

"For me the investment is simple - I back good people with a solid business plan and the guys have exceeded their targets year on year."
