Acquired: Chorley Group's new Vauxhall franchise

The Chorley Group has joined the Vauxhall and Mitsubishi franchises with the acquisition of Lancashire-based 06 Ormskirk Ltd.

The deal, completed for an undisclosed sum, sees the Vauxhall dealership on County Road, Ormskirk, renamed as Chorley Group Vauxhall (Ormskirk) and the Mitsubishi franchise on Birch Green, Skelmersdale, trade as Chorley Group Mitsubishi (Skelmersdale).

It also sees the addition of 06 Ormskirk Ltd managing director, John Dickson, as a Chorley Group general manager.

Chorley Group managing director, Adam Turner, described the acquisition as the latest move in the business’s mid-term strategic plans across the north-west, adding: “We can’t wait to start working with the team, including one of the current directors John Dickson.”

Taking to LinkedIn to celebrate the acquisition, he added: “We are proud to welcome the 06 businesses into the Chorley Group family.

“A business with a great ethos that fits perfectly with our group values and mid-term growth plans across the North-West.

“Thanks to the team at CG Professional for their support in ensuring we got this over the line for March even in tough COVID environments.”

Jointly run by Dickson and co-director Paul Byron, the 06 Ormskirk Ltd business’s last annual financial results statements were made for the 12-month period to December 31, 2019.

They show that the operation delivered a 3.6% increase in turnover, to £17.3 million, and a 2.6% decline in pre-tax profit to £413,680.
