The Nelson Mail reports on the Bowater Hyundai Move.

Written by Media Manager.

The Nelson Mail reported on our Bowater Hyundai opening held on Thuirsday April 3rd recently, with Marion Van Dijk  on hand to take some photos.
Following is their story as it ran in the Nelson Mail.

Pictured left: Chris Bowater hands over the keys to a new Hyundai i20 to Nelson College for Girls principal Cathy Ewing as a part of the school support that Bowater Hyundai offers the College annually.

Be sure to check out the right hand column where you can see other articles about the refurbishment of the new Bowater Hyundai showroom, as well as photo gallery's from the opening evening. 


Bowater Hyundai makes it's move.

A large turnout of Nelson's business community helped mark the move of Bowater Hyundai to its new central city premises, while its former premises down the road have been given a reprieve from pending demolition.

Close to 300 people, including Hyundai executives from Auckland, gathered last night in the new showroom on the corner of Hardy St and Rutherford St, previously occupied by Bowater Honda.

The group's Honda operations moved late last year from the corner site to new premises next to its Toyota workshop in Achilles Ave, off Wakatu Square.

Bowater Honda chief executive Chris Bowater said it was a great evening helped by an "amazing turnout", and a speech by Nelson College for Girls student Georgie Holdaway, who spoke about her adventure over summer on the sail training ship, Spirit of New Zealand.

Georgie was one of two girls' college students last year to receive a Bowater Hyundai scholarship to join the voyage. The company supports two annual scholarships to the Spirit of Adventure Trust worth $900 each, and the college selected the recipients, Bowater said.

Welcome to our new Bowater Hyundai Showroom, officially.

Bowater Hyundai opening

The new tiled floor sparkled, the new range of Hyundai's gleamed, and the 300 invited guests mingled happily as the opening event for Bowater Hyundai's new showroom got underway last Thursday evening at our recently refurbished showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy Streets.

Amongst the crowd was a strong representation from the Hyundai head office team, with many from the top management tier travelling down to support the opening. Also on hand were many of our valued customers, as was our local MP, and Hyundai Santa Fe driver, the Hon Dr Nick Smith, as well as Tasman Mayor Richard Kempthorne.

The evening got underway just after 5.30 with the showroom filling up quickly. The guests were treated to delightful nibbles provided by Blinc Catering, and fine local wines from Waimea Estates and Stoke Beers from McCashins Brewery.

Take a moment to scroll through the slideshow - we managed to sneak a few photos of the guests during the night, and keep on reading as we have heaps more photos to share further on.

  • Standard 5 year / 75,000km service plan

  • 5 year / 150,000km warranty

  • 5 years of free Warrant of Fitness checks

The floor is polished, the cars are in, and Bowater Hyundai has a new showroom!

This week the new Bowater Hyundai Showroom came together very quickly as the finishing touches are all put in place - the shiny new tiled floors got a polish and the brand new range of Hyundai's have been put into pride of place.

The new showroom is located on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy street's with ample parking for customers in Kerr Street behind the dealership. It is quite a bit larger than the previous showroom across the road, and allows us to enable a better customer experience.

Not only has the showroom had an injection of space and shininess, but the Bowater Hyundai Parts and Service reception is also enjoying a brand new customer lounge and waiting area - much to the delight of Peter and Lana!


The service bay has also moved across and is also a much larger facility - perfect for keeping your Hyundai in tip top condition!
