Marshall Group has acquired two businesses from Pilling Motor Group at Milton Keynes and Welwyn Garden City bringing its representation of the Volvo brand to six.
Top 10 UK dealer group and the second largest privately owned motor retail company, Marshall Group retains the majority of staff at both businesses with the group’s franchise director for Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover Chris Sheppard overseeing both dealerships which now sit alongside the other Marshall Volvo sites located at Nottingham, Grantham, Cambridge and Peterborough.
Sheppard said: “The acquisition of these two sites means we are now one of the largest representatives of the Volvo brand in the UK.
“We are looking forward to continuing to build on the firm foundations that have already been laid in the businesses.
"Marshall Group is able to deliver the best of both worlds: we encourage our dealer principals to run the business as if it were their own, enabling them to create a family friendly style which we know our customers love whilst benefitting from the support of a top automotive retail group. We are confident both dealerships will continue to go from strength to strength.”
