Note: Platts has ceased trading.
The North West Section is extremely excited that Platts Garages of Longton has chosen to sponsor the Section during 2017.
Platts’ sponsorship complements the great support and closeness that the members share with Peak Alfa. The Section now has sponsorship from both a great Alfa Romeo main dealer and a superb Alfa independent specialist.
Founded in 1938, Platts Garages is a family run business stretching over five generations in the Stoke-on-Trent area. The company won the Fiat franchise in 1946 and is now the longest established Fiat dealer in the UK. Platts Garages is an authorised Alfa Romeo dealership operating from two Fiat Group Brand Centres located in Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford. With 25 years specialising in Alfa Romeo, the Stoke location is a designated Alfa Centre of Excellence for the Midlands.
In recent years Platts has seen large expansion. Most notably, 2012 marked the opening of Platts Stafford and in 2013 the addition of Jeep and Chrysler to its franchise portfolio made them the complete FCA group site in the UK. Further expansion over the last two years has seen the opening of Platts KIA Stafford and Platts Renault Stafford, extending the Platts offering to a choice of 40 models across eight brands.
Jim Oliphant, the Alfa Romeo Sales Specialist at Platts, presented Section Secretary, Neil Branham with a £500 cheque on behalf of Platts. Jim is a true Alfisti having loved and sold Alfa Romeos for many years. Jim said “I’m looking forward to supporting the North West Section’s events and meetings and also closely engaging with the members and bringing the latest cars to try”. Platts is currently running a 4C with a ‘P14TTS’ number plate.
