Pulman celebrate seven years of SEAT.

In August 2010 Pulman acquired the already established Alexandra Bridge Cars in Sunderland and are now celebrating a fantastic 7 years as Pulman SEAT.

A lot has happened in the last 7 years, including 4 recognised awards: winning SEAT UK Dealer of the Year twice; named Motorcodes Best Garage and acknowledged for having the very Best New Car Sales Team across the SEAT UK network just last year. Along with these recognised dealership awards, Pulman also celebrated anniversaries for Alex Paget Sales Manager (30 years with SEAT) Lee Morris Service Manager (over 30 years) and Paul Fowler Business Development Manager (30 years with SEAT), true ambassadors and veterans of the SEAT Brand.

Chris Slater, Site Manager at Pulman SEAT commented: “We don’t know where the last seven years have gone! It has been a whirl wind! To win so many awards and to have a fantastic team that have celebrated individual awards and anniversaries is credit to everyone. More importantly we couldn’t have done it without all the support from our amazing customers, a big thank you from all of us!”

Over the last 7 years Pulman SEAT have delivered new and used cars to over 8,000 customers, along with the Motorcodes Best garage award shows the fantastic customer experience Pulman have to offer.

Chris Slater continues “It’s been very exciting to be part of the SEAT brand. Over the last seven years we have launched the new Leon and Toledo, expanded the range with the new Mii and ATECA, just launched the fifth-generation Ibiza in July and look forward to the new City Crossover SEAT Arona coming at the end of this year.”

SEAT from its state of the art manufacturing facility in Matorell just outside Barcelona have developed their new car range significantly, enhancing the design and functionality of the models, entering new markets with the City Car SEAT Mii and the SUV SEAT ATECA.

The fifth-generation SEAT Ibiza was launched in July 33 years after the very first Ibiza left the production line. It has come a long way and is now packed full of all the latest technology and features. Winning awards from Auto Express for ‘Best Supermini’ and Red Dot Product Design 2017, which is the world’s most prestigious design awards and most importantly a five star NCAP safety rating.


The new Ibiza is available in S, SE, FR and Xcellence trims. Get there faster with the integrated navigation system. Enjoy the journey and turn up the tunes with BeatsAudio™. Link your smart phone with Full Link Technology – Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto. Look after your family and friends with intuitive features such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Front Assist.
