Marshall Motor Group has completed the acquisition of Lookers’ Ipswich Jaguar dealership for an undisclosed sum.
Marshall already represents Jaguar in Cambridge and Peterborough, and the addition of Ipswich Jaguar means that Marshall now covers the whole of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire with the nearest non-Marshall Jaguar dealerships over 40 miles away.
The group’s additional service point in Bury St Edmunds means Marshall now covers the entire A14 corridor to the east of the A1.
The Ipswich Jaguar business will continue to operate from its existing site in Ipswich and all of the former Lookers staff at that site have transferred to Marshall.
Daksh Gupta, Marshall chief executive, said: “This is the fifth new business that we have added this year and is in line with our stated intention to expand our group nationally, deliberately moving beyond our historical boundaries with scalable businesses which offer us further opportunity for growth.”
