The Nelson Mail reports on the Bowater Hyundai Move.

The Nelson Mail reported on our Bowater Hyundai opening held on Thuirsday April 3rd recently, with Marion Van Dijk  on hand to take some photos.
Following is their story as it ran in the Nelson Mail.

Pictured left: Chris Bowater hands over the keys to a new Hyundai i20 to Nelson College for Girls principal Cathy Ewing as a part of the school support that Bowater Hyundai offers the College annually.

Be sure to check out the right hand column where you can see other articles about the refurbishment of the new Bowater Hyundai showroom, as well as photo gallery's from the opening evening. 


Bowater Hyundai makes it's move.

A large turnout of Nelson's business community helped mark the move of Bowater Hyundai to its new central city premises, while its former premises down the road have been given a reprieve from pending demolition.

Close to 300 people, including Hyundai executives from Auckland, gathered last night in the new showroom on the corner of Hardy St and Rutherford St, previously occupied by Bowater Honda.

The group's Honda operations moved late last year from the corner site to new premises next to its Toyota workshop in Achilles Ave, off Wakatu Square.

Bowater Honda chief executive Chris Bowater said it was a great evening helped by an "amazing turnout", and a speech by Nelson College for Girls student Georgie Holdaway, who spoke about her adventure over summer on the sail training ship, Spirit of New Zealand.

Georgie was one of two girls' college students last year to receive a Bowater Hyundai scholarship to join the voyage. The company supports two annual scholarships to the Spirit of Adventure Trust worth $900 each, and the college selected the recipients, Bowater said.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

James Duncan. Very good at horsing around....

2015-isuzu-james500xJames has been with Bowater Hyundai & Isuzu since early in 2014, having come through the industry since his first job as a vehicle groomer back in 2002. Over that time he has certainly seen technology change, and is able to point you in the right direction with matching you up with the vehicle that will best suit your needs. He has his finger on the pulse and knows how to take control of the reigns!

Born and bred in Nelson, James grew up in Wakefield and attended Waimea College. He has kept true to his country roots, having competitively ridden horses since he was 5. He now competes on a national level, often travelling to events such as the Horse of the Year with his horse and his executive horse float. Got a question about towing a horse float - James is your man! He has towed more horse floats in his time than most, and has got the full run down on towing statistics.
