ADRIAN BRIEN AUTOMOTIVE – 40 YEARS OF BEING A VALUED AND TRUSTED BRAND FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIAN MOTORISTS
“Celebrating 40 years of providing motoring solutions that offer superior value, quality and service.”
I am very pleased to announce that we have reached our 40th year milestone, as a Ford Dealership in South Australia. It’s a delight to see that the types of vehicles we used to display in our showrooms are now being featured, in Classic Car shows and exhibitions across the world.
Although the needs and wants of our customers continue to evolve, our mission has always remained the same “to provide motoring solutions that offer superior value, quality and service”.
Over the past 10 years we have sold more than 20,000 vehicles and we estimate that the number of vehicles sold over the past 40 years would be close to 50,000. This includes many highly satisfied repeat and referred customers.
2011 marks a period of celebration for our business, staff and most importantly our loyal customers and neighbours who live in the local area. Without your support our business would simply not survive. As of today, we currently employ 92 staff (most of whom live locally) over our 2 sites (including the Keswick service centre).
Our business currently comprises: New Ford; New Hyundai; New Chrysler Jeep Dodge; pre-owned Ford; pre-owned Hyundai (specialist small car centre); 2 service locations (St Marys and Keswick); a parts department; and a panel shop. You may be surprised to discover that we currently employ 21 automotive technicians on site as well as 10 staff who work in our panel shop.
An ownership change occurred in 2001, when the Adrian Brien family sold the business to the Adtrans Group (now AP Eagers). Although the Adrian Brien Automotive group is no longer owned by the Adrian Brien family we still like to think of ourselves as a family based business, because a large portion of our staff and customers are comprised of friends and family who live in the local area.
We’re very proud to be celebrating our 40th birthday this year, as well as being a recognised, valued and trusted brand in the South Australian automotive industry and look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
