A VOLVO dealership with a base in Milton Keynes has a new owner and name.

The old Pilling Motor Group in Chippenham Drive, Kingston, is now a part of Marshall Motor Group.

Marshall is understood to be the second largest privately owned motor retail company and a top 10 dealer group. Most of the old dealerships employees have transferred over.

Marshall Milton Keynes ‘opened’ its doors for business earlier this month.

Ownership of the Milton Keynes Pilling has been transferred along with its sibling business at Welwyn Garden City.

Marshall Group’s Volvo franchise director Chris Sheppard said: “The acquisition of these two sites means we are now one of the largest representatives of the Volvo brand in the UK. We are looking forward to continuing to build on the firm foundations that have already been laid in the business.

“Marshall Group is able to deliver the best of both worlds – we encourage our dealer principals to run the business as if it were their own, enabling them to create a family friendly style which we know our customers love, while benefiting from the support of a top automotive retail group. We are confident the business will go from strength to strength.”
