Leon Coupland, managing director, Shorade UK, said: “Completing the acquisition of A&M Motors and rebranding as Shorade Bristol is a fantastic achievement for both teams. Having analysed the market within Bristol and the surrounding areas with our partnered vehicle manufacturers, we are confident that the Shorade solution in Bristol will have a significant impact for a greater customer journey for our partnered manufacturers, dealerships and end-users. We have been very fortunate to have gained a great team within A&M Motors, and we welcome them to the Shorade UK family.”
