Lodge Hill Garage has become the latest auto retailer to secure an MG Motor franchise. Located in Abingdon, a short distance from the site of the original MG factory where cars were built from 1929 to 1980, Lodge Hill Garage was established in 2003 and its primary business has focused on the sale of used cars. the addition of the MG franchise has created three new jobs – an MG trained technician, an apprentice technician and a receptionist.

Commenting on the business expansion, Lodge Hill’s Principal, Nigel Murrin, said: “We’ve had a huge response from people wishing us well and saying how glad they are to see the MG name back. It’s just a reminder how much passion there is for the brand.”

Matthew Cheyne, MG’s Head of Sales and Marketing, said: “It’s always great to welcome new dealers to our brand, but even more so to now have a dealer representing us in the very birthplace of MG.”
