We may have state-of-the-art showrooms and be at the forefront of motoring in Cornwall, but believe it or not, this year we’re celebrating our 80th birthday! To mark our eighth decade, we’ve been celebrating in style and there’s a whole lot more coming up in 2013!
It all began in 1933 when William Henry (Billy) Hawkins founded his first business in the clay village of St Stephen. By 1940, we were stocking tractors, cars, motorcycles and cycles. By 1946, Hawkins Motors were appointed agent for British motorcycles Ariel, BSA, Norton, Vincent, Scott and ETS and it was in 1972, when we became an appointed Peugeot dealership! You know what they say, the rest is history!
Today, we have seven Hawkins Motors dealerships stocking an impressive portfolio including Citroën, Hyundai, Kia, Isuzu, Great Wall and Mitsubishi, as well as hundreds of used cars.
With so much to celebrate, we’ve been busy with promotions, giveaways and events. Our first Electric Car Rally in March really kicked off our year-long party; look out for more big events in the pipeline!
Our Sports Kit Competition is up and running, offering sports kits worth £500 each for two lucky local Cornish teams...have you supported your sport and voted yet!?
Plus, we’ve donated a brand new Peugeot 107 to the annual Cornwall Air Ambulance prize draw! Click here to see how you can get involved and support such a valuable service!
Thanks to all our valued customers for helping us reach this incredible milestone and....Happy Birthday to us! We thought we'd treat you to a little sing song...
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for more great stuff coming up from Hawkins Motors.
