AMERICAN DEALER Group 1 Automotive has bought Inchcape’s Ford dealerships.
The retail sites, based in Bracknell, Guildford, Wokingham and Farnborough will drop Inchcape’s branding – set to trade under the ‘think Ford’ brand name.
The dealerships join Group 1’s other UK acquisitions – BMW and Mini dealerships in Surrey, and the Essex Audi group – along with over 100 franchises in the US.
‘We are delighted to add Ford to our brand offerings in England with this acquisition of four dealerships in a growing area outside of London,’ said Earl J. Hesterberg, Group 1′s president and chief executive officer.
‘We are also very pleased to expand our relationship with Ford Motor Company internationally.’
