Pendragon became a public limited company when the vehicle division of Williams PLC was de-merged in 1989.
At that time the operation included 19 car dealerships, representing specialist and luxury franchises, in addition to a small contract hire business.
Since then we have enhanced our portfolio and expanded considerably through a series of new builds and acquisitions, and now represent over 20 brands in the UK and the USA.
This representation covers both specialist and volume brands, our largest representation is with Ford and is closely followed by Vauxhall where we are the largest retailer in the UK.
Our specialist marques range from Ferrari to Mercedes-Benz and we also retail Harley-Davidson and Triumph motorcycles.
Our national scale, wide portfolio of manufacturer partners, when combined with our superior IT platform and value pricing gives us a competitive advantage and enables us to be the number one internet motor retailer.
