The newly established Continental Nerang is operated by David McCarthy who has owned a tyre and mechanical services facility on the same premises for the past seven years. David and his team possess an impressive 40 years of combined tyre industry experience and are looking forward to being a part of the Continental Tyre’s family.
“We’d been seeking a change for a while now and when Continental approached us, it was exactly what we’d been looking for,” David McCarthy said. “Continental is one of the most well respected and reputable tyre brands in the world, but it isn’t that well known here yet; therefore it’s a great opportunity to be one of its first retail stores in Australia.
“We are confident these premium tyres will be well received by our customers and residents of Nerang.”
Continental Nerang joins six other Continental retail outlets across the country including Cannonvale (QLD), Wanneroo and Mundaring (WA), Murwillumbah and Port Macquarie (NSW), and Nailsworth (SA).
“We are thrilled to welcome David and his team into the Continental family and thus open our first store on the Gold Coast,” said David Goldsworthy, retail development manager, Continental Tyres of Australia. “David McCarthy and his team bring an unbeatable combination of tyre industry experience and impressive knowledge of the local tyre buying public.”
The opening of these retail outlets is part of Continental’s decision to expand its operations in Australia and enhance brand recognition through a visible presence across all states.
With an active recruitment process and unrivalled support network for its dealers and stores, Continental is confident of opening more passenger vehicle tyre retail outlets across Australia during 2012.
The seven Australian stores have joined over 1400 Continental retail outlets globally, all of which play a vital role in Continental’s research and development through customer feedback.
“Our store owners are in fact, our front line,” David Goldsworthy added. “It is their direct communication with our valued customers that enables Continental to continually grow our business and provide the latest in cutting-edge technology, safety and service offerings. Continental is the number one tyre manufacturer in Europe with its products fitted to one in every three European built cars.”
