Bristol Street Motors acquires new Vauxhall dealership in Keighley
Bristol Street Motors, which is part of Vertu Motors Plc, the seventh largest motor retailer in the UK, has acquired a Vauxhall franchise dealership operation in Keighley, West Yorkshire.
The business has been purchased from Walter C Brigg and will be the 14th Vauxhall dealership in the Group’s growing portfolio. The dealership based on the Crossings Business Park, will now operate under the well-respected Bristol Street Motors brand and continue to sell Vauxhall new cars, quality used cars, plus servicing and parts.
The West Yorkshire based dealership is part of a growth plan into the area for Bristol Street Motors and will be overseen by experienced General Manager Andy Marlow, who has until recently led the Group’s Vauxhall dealership in Macclesfield.
Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Vertu Motors Plc, said:
"The former Walter C Brigg dealership in Keighley has a great reputation for customer service and its colleagues based at the dealership have in-depth industry knowledge."
"We have built a recognised brand in Bristol Street Motors, delivering the best service to customers and operating a successful business built on honesty and trust. By acquiring the dealership in Keighley we are extending our existing presence in Yorkshire where we currently operate dealerships in Harrogate, Bradford, Barnsley and Doncaster."
"This acquisition represents a great opportunity for the Group to develop its relationship with Vauxhall and to represent the Vauxhall brand in this area."
