SWANSEA ACQUISITION ADDS NINTH BRAND TO THE SINCLAIR GROUP PORTFOLIO
Jaguar is the latest brand to be added to the Sinclair Group’s impressive portfolio after Wales’ largest motor retailer took over Stratstone Swansea.
The acquisition of Stratstone’s Jaguar and Land Rover franchises on Swansea Enterprise Park means that the family-run company now represents nine marques and employs more than 1,000 people. Swansea is already home to Audi, Mercedes-Benz, SEAT, Skoda, smart, Volkswagen Cars and Commercial Vehicles dealerships owned by the Group, which celebrates its 75th anniversary next year.
It is the second acquisition by the Sinclair Group in a matter of months following its purchase of Likes, Hay-on-Wye Land Rover, in December.
All 65 staff employed at the site will be welcomed into Sinclair Group.
"The opportunity to acquire this business fitted perfectly with our ongoing expansion plan – adding the illustrious Jaguar brand to our portfolio and strengthening our association with Land Rover in the wake of our recent purchase of Likes from the Walters Group," explained Andy Sinclair, Sinclair Group Managing Director.
"The Land Rover and Jaguar operations have been trading on Swansea Enterprise Park for 27 and 12 years respectively so both are extremely well-established at this location and we’re extremely proud to welcome them into the Group."
He added: "Since 1945, we have built our reputation on delivering the highest standards of personal service to Welsh motorists and we now look forward to extending that unrivalled retail experience to the customers of Sinclair Land Rover and Sinclair Jaguar in Swansea for many years to come."
