Van Mossel Automotive Groep, with Belgian head office in Antwerp, has reached an agreement with Wim Bresseleers for the takeover of the Ford garage of the same name in Berchem. From October 3, the activities of garage Bresseleers will be continued in the existing Van Mossel Ford location on Bisschoppenhoflaan in Deurne. The employees also move with them.
Garage Bresseleers has been active in Berchem for more than 30 years and specializes in the maintenance of Ford passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In recent years, Wim Bresseleers also worked as a Ford agent for Van Mossel. The acquisition will continue the group’s growth ambitions in the Belgian market.
“We are already active in Belgium with Ford at 8 different locations in Antwerp and Flemish Brabant”, says Koen Claesen, CEO Van Mossel Belgium and Luxembourg. “With the integration of garage Bresseleers, we are adding an experienced team of mechanics, specializing in Ford, to our current team, strengthening and securing our position in the region. In addition, we also anticipate Ford’s strategy to prepare the remaining dealers for the future.”
The current owner and his team will move to Van Mossel Ford Deurne together from 3 October. Of course, customers also receive the personal attention and service they are used to.
