Motor group celebrate a decade of success

A West Midlands motor group is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, after growing from a start up firm to one that today employs 250 people.

Trust Group UK was founded in March 2006 by managing director Andrew Hockedy and finance director Nigel White, when they bought three Volkswagen dealerships from Reg Vardy PLC. 

The last three years have seen rapid expansion for the company, who have sites at Wolverhamption, Redditch and Stourbridge, having added the Skoda brand to its offering across all three towns.

Mr Hockedy said: “The last 10 years have been truly exciting.

“Building a company from a start-up position into one that today employs 250 colleagues and is recognised as a strong partner within the Volkswagen Group is something of which both Nigel and I are really proud.”

Mr White added: “Having started the business 10 years ago the Group has moved on in size and representation at a steady pace.

“Our Trade Parts Specialist operations covering both Wolverhampton and Birmingham territories were cash generating from day one and gave the group a strong cash flow position from which further investment in facilities could be drawn.”
