Endeavour Automotive celebrates fifth anniversary

Time 11:35 am, August 2, 2017

ENDEAVOUR Automotive is celebrating its fifth year of operation today after a rapid succession of dealership acquisitions since the company launched in 2012.

Established by John Caney, the former managing director of the Wayside Group, Endeavour Automotive now operates 10 Volvo and Hyundai dealerships across London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex, with its turnover placing it in the top 100 dealer groups in the UK.

The company began life with Hyundai North London and has since gone from strength to strength, adding three new Hyundai dealerships – Hyundai Watford plus Haddocks Hyundai’s Frinton and Colchester sites – to its portfolio along the way.

In 2014, Endeavour made a significant investment when it added a new franchise to its name after buying the entire share capital of Regent Automotive, acquiring six Volvo dealerships in and around London.

Casey, pictured, who is Endeavour’s managing director,  said: ‘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.’

Five years on, the group is relocating its Hyundai North London site later this year to a new flagship two-storey showroom in New Southgate.

“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,’ added Caney.

‘I’d like to personally thank all of our customers and colleagues, old and new, who have made it possible for Endeavour Automotive to take on this journey so far. The future is an exciting one for vehicle retailing, and we look forward to seeing what the next five years will present.’
