Benfield acquires another VW site

Benfield Motor Group has acquired a Volkswagen site in Thornaby, Teeside marking the third acquisition this month for the company.


The new site marks a busy period for Benfield and quickly follow its acquisition of  VW sites in Dumfries and Carlisle, Cumbria from Verve Ltd.

The new sites in Dumfries, Thornaby, Teesside and Carlisle, Cumbria, added to Benfield's van centre in Fossway, Newcastle, means Benfield's commercial vehicle territory will now stretch from the west coast of England, throughout the north east of England and from the borders to north Yorkshire.

The Teesside territory in Mandale Road, Thornaby is the third largest commercial vehicle site in the country and represents an investment of over £350, 000.

Mark Squires, chief executive Benfield Motor Group, said "Benfield has continued to invest during the economic downturn and we are aiming to make further acquisitions as opportunities present themselves.

“The new sites represent a terrific opportunity to expand Benfield's reputation as a leading commercial vehicle supplier to businesses throughout the UK. We already successfully supply commercial vehicles to national brands such as Asda and Northgate. We’re looking to expand our portfolio further."
