ACF Car Finance Limited has further strengthened its position
as the UK’s leading sub-prime car dealer by becoming the first and only
specialist business of its kind to join The Society of Motor
Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
“As a company we’re all about improving the perceptions of the sub-prime market by
raising awareness and standards. It’s no hidden secret that the proportion of UK
consumers in the market for non-standard car finance is increasing and these
consumers need to know who to turn to when looking to buy their next car,” commented
ACF Car Finance Sales and Marketing Director, Norman Beaumont.
“Customers need to know who to trust and where to get accurate, reliable advice and
great service. By becoming members of such a high-profile organisation we hope to
strengthen our position as the experts in our field and to demonstrate our high
level of professionalism.”
As the leading trade association for the UK motor industry, the SMMT is an
independent organisation that aims to support and promote the interests of the
automotive sector by acting as the voice of the industry.
Beaumont adds: “The SMMT play a vital role in representing the motor industry in the
UK and abroad. As a member, ACF Car Finance has access to a wide range of expert
services and key industry data, which assist in further enhancing the business
proposition. Not only that but we can now play a larger part in influencing the way
the industry is shaped.”
Paul Everett, SMMT Chief Executive said: “We are delighted to welcome ACF Car
Finance as members of the SMMT. As our organisation is run by our members for our
members, we are keen to work with more specialist organisations, such as ACF Car
Finance, to enable us to broaden our representation of every part of the UK
automotive industry. I am sure that they will find membership of such a key
association for the motor trade to be most beneficial.”
