An East Anglia motor group has increased its portfolio with the recent acquisition of the Volkswagen franchise in Kings Lynn.
Marriott Motor Group purchased the Volkswagen retailer on Bergen Way, which has supplied passenger cars in the area for over ten years and launched Volkswagen Van Centre Kings Lynn in September last year.
The business will see the group increase its presence of Volkswagen and Audi sites to nine across the Norfolk and Suffolk area.
As a family company, the Marriott Motor Group is owned and run by the Barnard family and has supplied vehicles from its ‘aptly named’ Barnards Volkswagen site in Stowmarket for the past 100 years.
Ian Woodward, Group operations director said: “The King Lynn investment is good news for our Volkswagen customers and is an exciting development for the company.
“We presently operate a successful Audi site in King Lynn so the Volkswagen addition will continue to strengthen our automotive expertise and services across Norfolk.
“The new team will bring the Group’s employee numbers to over 310 and we look forward to welcoming them to the business and enhancing the existing services we provide."
