We have been negotiating for a significant period of time and I'm confident that their investment and expertise will further enhance our performance and service offerings. Van Mossel is a leading automotive group in Europe and a significant reinforcement of our operations. I look forward to working with them to future-proof the business on the islands.

A win-win situation.”
