Endeavour Automotive has celebrated its fifth year of operation, following a rapid succession of dealership acquisitions.
Set up by John Caney, former managing director of the Wayside Group, in August 2012, Endeavour Automotive now operates 10 Volvo and Hyundai dealerships across London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex, placing it 98th in the AM100.
In 2014, Endeavour made a significant investment and added a new franchise to its name, by purchasing the entire share capital of Regent Automotive, acquiring six Volvo dealerships located in and around London to the business.
“Within just five years, Endeavour Automotive’s acquisitions have built us into one of the 100 largest motor groups in the UK, a very encouraging position having only started the business in 2012,” said Caney.
The group is relocating its original North London Hyundai site to a brand-new flagship two-storey showroom in New Southgate set to open in Q4 2017.
“Looking ahead to the future, we’ll continue to deliver our strategic plan of growing a regional group with a balance of manufacturer representation. We’ll aim to develop our current businesses and the market opportunities they represent by working with our franchise partners - starting with our new Hyundai premises in New Southgate,” Caney said.
