JCT600 expands Peugeot and Seat site

JCT600 has made a £500,000 investment in its Peugeot and Seat dealership in Menston.

After relocating to a large new showroom at 46 Bradford Road three years ago, the family car retailer has now doubled the size of the exterior space to enable it to showcase a greater number of used cars and also to provide additional customer parking.

The site has 1.3 acres of space and also features a 15-bay service workshop.

Simon Thompson, JCT600 Menston general manager, said: “JCT600 made a significant investment in its Menston site in 2009 when we relocated to larger, more modern premises.

“Since then, the dealership has proved extremely popular and this latest extension will enable us to offer customers an even more extensive range of cars.”

The 42-strong team at JCT600 Menston has been strengthened with the recent appointments of Ian McFadzen as sales manager and Simon Hackney as service manager.

With its head office in Bradford, the JCT600 group is a family business with 42 dealerships throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and the North East. Its dealerships sell 21 brands including Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen.

2010 proved a record year for this proudly family, firmly Yorkshire based group.

It recorded the highest turnover in its 65 year history: £615 million from £498m the previous year. Profit before tax also increased to £12.3m.

It now believes 2011 will be another record year with sales to the end of August already more than 1,000 cars higher than over the same period in 2010.

The group, one of the largest privately owned independent motor groups in the UK, employs 1,350 staff at its 48 dealerships throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and the North East. JCT600 represents 22 franchises.

It also has a car supermarket brand PriceRight with its first solus site opening at Rawdon, near Bradford, at the end of 2010 with a stock of around 120 cars.

PriceRight has also been integrated into used car operations at a handful of low market share outlets, helping to establish these as all-makes used car specialists.

Current chief executive John Tordoff is grandson of Edward Tordoff who founded the business in 1946 and son of Jack Tordoff who ran the company for more than 44 years until he became chairman in 2002.

JCT600 takes its name from Jack Tordoff's Mercedes-Benz 600 personalised number plate.
