Citygate scores six with Rye Mill

Citygate Volkswagen has increased its number of dealerships to six following its acquisition of High Wycombe’s VW dealership from Rye Mill.

The company, part of HR Owen, now has representation for the brand over a large stretch from north and west London into the Home Counties.

Its other VW dealerships are in Chalfont, Colindale, Watford and Ruislip – and it has a VW Van Centre in Colindale.

“We’ve established a very formidable force for Volkwagen concentrated in a tight geographical area and the ownership of the High Wycombe outlet reinforces our commitment to the brand,” says HR Owen’s Volkswagen divisional director Jonathan Smith.

Rye Mill was a well established family-owned Volkswagen retailer with a 70-year history. Its workforce has been transferred to Citygate.

The acquisition comes shortly after the group opened its new £6m flagship retail outlet and HQ for the brand in Ruislip.
