T L Darby Ltd is the latest dealer group to join MG Motor UK’s expanding network.
The move coincides with the Burton-upon-Trent retailer’s 50th anniversary celebrations and sees a new MG Motors franchise move in to the group's former Volkswagen facility on New Street, Burton Upon Trent.
It brings a second new car franchise to the group which opened a new Volkswagen showroom on the Centrum East Retail Park in late 2015 and also operates a PDI centre and bodyshop, the T L Darby Select prestige used operation and Derby's Trades Parts Specialist.
Richard Darby, managing director, at TL Darby, said: “Joining MG’s expanding dealer network is exciting news for the whole team and we look forward to displaying the latest models in our showroom.
"One of my key aims as brand manager is to grow the business further, while building a reputation for sales and service excellence. Joining the MG network help us do this thanks to its excellent range of vehicles.”
Matthew Cheyne, head of sales and marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “With an excellent track record for friendly service and expert advice, we’re delighted to celebrate TL Darby’s anniversary by welcoming the team to our national dealer network.
“Having recently announced the highest monthly registration figures since the company’s relaunch, alongside celebrating our most successful year to date, it’s vitally important that we continue to expand our network.
“As a renowned local dealership, we’re confident TL Darby will help to further our presence in Staffordshire and the surrounding areas.”
