This is a really exciting time as this acquisition allows Park’s to build on our relationships with Hyundai, Skoda and Toyota with additional locations as well as welcome new brands Lexus and Volkswagen Aftersales to the Park’s family. All of the familiar faces within the dealerships will remain and customers will continue to enjoy the same levels of expertise and service. Over the coming weeks and months, we are looking forward to meeting existing customers as well as new ones, and are confident in our collective ability to grow the business further.
Border majority shareholder Archie Maclean commented, “Once I had made the decision to sell it was important for me to find a buyer that shared my values and ethos. I believe I have found that in Park’s Motor Group and their leadership team have been fantastic to deal with throughout. I was extremely satisfied by their plans for the business, how they believe they can help it grow whilst at the same time looking after our customers and colleagues who have been vital in the growth of the business.”
Park’s Motor Group Chairman Douglas Park said, “We believe Border to be an excellent opportunity and recognise that Archie and his team have created fantastic foundations on which we can build our business in Carlisle, Dumfries and St Boswells. It was a particularly attractive opportunity for us as it allowed us to increase our representation with a number of brands with whom we have had ambition to grow with and also the fantastic addition of Lexus to our portfolio. We would like to express our thanks not only to Archie but to the management teams of Hyundai, Lexus, Skoda and Toyota for making the process go so smoothly.”
