Here at Vantage, we are excited to announce that we have expanded our fast-growing portfolio of dealerships to 25 across the North and the Midlands, with the acquisition of Toyota Leeds, Toyota Wakefield and Lexus Leeds! Formerly operated by the Benfield Group, these new additions take the total number of Vantage Toyota dealerships to 12, making Vantage one of the largest Toyota groups in the UK - something that we are very proud of.
This move follows an incredible 2015, which saw Vantage acquire it's first Mazda and ŠKODA dealerships in Oldham and Morecambe, alongside the addition of a second Honda dealership in Bradford and the relocation of Toyota Grange-Over-Sands to Morecambe.
Mark Robinson, Founder and Managing Director or Vantage Motor Group, said:
"This is not about doing deals for the sake of doing deals but because they make a perfect fit - strategically, geographically and culturally. Vantage and Benfield share a philosophy of putting employees and customers at the very heart of the business and matching both with great products."
Mark, who is also Chair of the Toyota Dealer Council for the UK, added:
"These latest acquisitions cement our relationship with Toyota and reinforce our ambition of being a regionally based, national force in the industry, recognised not just for the excellent range of vehicles we sell but for the outstanding level of customer service we deliver and the career opportunities we provide for our staff."
We look forward to welcoming you to our new Yorkshire-based centres soon!
