Read Motor Group has opened an eighth dealership as their turnover accelerates beyond the £100 million milestone.

The Grimsby-based franchised dealer group opened the new 12-car showroom on Altyre Way.  In July 2021 Read opened their first Stellantis new car franchises, also on Altyre Way, with the acquisition of  the Beechdale Motor Group.

Adding MG into the business prompted a second complete new build  with the brand brought alongside Suzuki.

Read’s move will see its previous Grimsby MG and Suzuki site, on Railway Street, become a fleet business centre.

Managing director Mike Read is creating four new jobs in the process.

He said: “It is fantastic. We brought Suzuki into the group in 2014, and it’s been a fantastic brand, going from strength to strength. The addition of MG, which had a fantastic year in 2021 – enabled us to do this.

“I’m absolutely delighted to open, and delighted with the build itself.

“It is our second new build as a group, and while we have expanded geographically, it has always been with established dealerships.”

A new six bay workshop and MoT station are also part of the build, within what has become the focal point for car dealerships.
