Founded in 1810, Johnson & Perrott Motor Group is one of Ireland’s leading motor retailers and is owned by members of the Whitaker family, 5th and 6th generation descendants of Mr James Johnson, who purchased the business in 1860. Mr Johnson led the company’s venture into the world of automobiles in 1903 when he sold his first motor car. Today, having recently passed its 200th anniversary, the Group has interests in vehicle hire, motor dealerships and fleet management. It represents a number of leading car franchises at its two dealerships in Cork City: Mahonpoint Retail Park and Douglas Road. The dealership’s new, extensive Peugeot showroom is now open for business, housing the full range of Peugeot passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, including the newly arrived Peugeot 208. A range of quality used Peugeot vehicles is on site. Fully trained Peugeot technical experts are on hand and a wide range of Peugeot spare parts and accessories are stocked.
