Opel Liewes Roden dealer from Roden will join Bosch Car Service on November 1st. The connection with the garage formula is accompanied by the acquisition of Autobedrijf H. van Bergen in Roden. Wim Liewes, director of family business, confirms this with Automotive.

Opel dealer from Drenthe, who was awarded in 2018 at the Online Merchant Awards, was recently told by Stellantis that the retailer network is being redesigned and there is no room for Liewes Roden in this. The company will continue to be a universal automotive company and will also introduce the second-hand Carselexy label from VDS Automotive wholesale. From 2023, the company, which has been a brand seller since 1967, can no longer call itself a Opel retailer. Dutch Stellantis retailers will continue as agents from 2023.

Pensions

The employees and operations of the Henk van Bergen car company are moving to the Liewes family business. Van Bergen is retiring. “We are further expanding our workshop to provide working space for Van Megen’s 5 mechanics. In total we will soon be recruiting 11 technicians. In addition to Opel, we will be doing repairs and renovations on other brands. Extra work in this. Extra work is possible because we include half of our current warehouse in the workshop. We put our equipment in it, such as a balancing device. we expect our sales to double, ”said Wim Liewes, who recently handed over the family business to his sons Hendrik and Laurens Liewes.
