Marks a year of celebration as new showroom was opened by President and CEO of Kia Motors UK, Paul Philpott


Mantles Kia, based on York Way in Royston, is celebrating a string of high-profile award wins, presented at a special event by Kia Motors UK President and CEO, Paul Philpott.

The team was presented with UK Dealer of the Year and a Kia Customer Experience Award, reflecting the dealership’s successes and dedication to offering top-quality customer service to its customers in Royston.
Kia’s UK Dealer of the Year is a new award which recognises the top 25 of Kia’s 188 dealerships across the UK, awarded to only those dealerships which excel in customer service and sales.

John Mantle, Managing Director of Mantles Kia also travelled to Melbourne, Australia earlier this year to collect Mantles’ Kia Global Platinum Prestige Dealer Status award at a gala celebration dinner. This award marks Mantles as one of the top 3 per cent of Kia dealerships around the world, in celebration of exceptional customer service and results.

John Mantle commented "2017 is already proving to be a fantastic year for us as a dealership. We’re very proud to have been recognised by Kia for our results and dedication to customer service – the whole team has worked very hard to achieve consistently high standards and we are delighted to continue to do so!"

We wish to reassure our customers regarding the recent announcement that we are considering the re-development of our London Road, Biggleswade site into a 70 bed care home. This is a speculative planning application and we plan to relocate to a more suitable site. This is part of a plan to further grow and improve our business whilst also benefiting the people of Biggleswade, as part of our heritage.

 Mantles is a successful and award winning business. In 2016, Mantles Ford  achieved national recognition in respect of our Motability Customer Service and Mantles Kia won the accolade of being the UK’s top performing dealer in respect of both Sales and Customer Care. We are completing a major refurbishment of our Kia dealership to provide even better customer facilities. Our plans to relocate our Ford and Mitsubishi businesses to an alternative site, are dependent on planning approval.

 Meanwhile, it is BUSINESS AS USUAL at Biggleswade and Royston with a continuation of the best deals, coupled with our high standards of personal customer service.
