The history of Group 1 Automotive UK

The wider business was founded in America in 1985, entering the UK market in 2007 with the acquisition of Chandlers dealerships. In 2010, the company purchased Barons Group, a BMW and MINI dealer based in southern England. The next few years saw some expansion, with Group 1 Automotive UK acquiring six Audi dealerships from Essex Audi in 2012 and four Ford dealerships from Inchcape Group the following year.

Since then, the group has continued to expand its UK operations, including the capture of Beadles dealerships in 2017. All the company’s acquisitions continue to trade under their own brand names.
