A MOTOR group led by a Holme Valley man has acquired a Huddersfield dealership as part of an £11m expansion move.
RRG Group, which has Holmfirth-born Arran Bangham as joint managing director, has bought four dealerships from West Riding Motor Group.
The acquisition is made up of the Toyota dealerships at Leeds Road, Huddersfield, and at Bradford and Keighley along with a Lexus dealership in Bradford.
Together, they employ 106 staff who will join RRG’s existing workforce of 760.
Salford-based RRG is also introducing the Nissan brand to an existing site at Bury.
RRG, which celebrated its 45th anniversary in September, plans to double the size of the business by 2015 and is targeting Yorkshire and the north-east from its North West heartland.
Mr Bangham said by acquiring good, profit-making businesses, RRG was looking to significantly boost its dealership revenues.
He said: “Creating long-term business partnerships helps to grow the business, promote confidence and enhance mutual profitability. With this partnership we are bringing WRMG’s successful Toyota and Lexus sites into our portfolio which will undoubtedly increase our revenues and our success.
