Marshall, the privately owned dealer group, completed its acquisition of the BMW, MINI and Motorrad business in Grisby and Scunthorpe from Astle main dealer group.    

The acquisition signals the start of our partnership with BMW and MINI, with the Astle BMW businesses in Scunthorpe and Grimsby, together with MINI in Grimsby and BMW motorcycles in Grimsby. 

Commenting on the acquisition, Daksh Gupta, Chief Executive at Marshall said:  This is an historically important acquisition for Marshall which fits perfectly with our stated strategy to grow with the right brand partners in the right locations.  We are incredibly proud to be partnering with BMW and MINI for the first time and look forward to building a strong relationship with what is undoubtedly one of the most desirable prestige brands in the market.    

Daksh Gupta added: These new businesses, together with the recent acquisitions of Halesworth Land Rover and Bishop’s Stortford Volvo, will take our annualised turnover to £1.2bn and lifts the Group’s portfolio to 75 franchised dealerships.  All staff at Astle BMW and MINI and Astle Motorrad Group have transferred to Marshall, bringing the total number of colleagues in Motor Group to around 2,300.

 We now have a truly balanced portfolio with important partnerships across the volume, alternate premium and premium sectors.  Our priority going forward will be to continue to build with our existing key partners and to grow our specialist representation just as we have recently done with the announcement of our new Maserati business.

With this acquisition, we also join an exclusive club, along with only five other groups, representing all of the major German and British premium car brands.  This is an incredible achievement having added Mercedes, Volkswagen, Audi and now BMW in less than four years. 

Daksh Gupta concluded:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues in the acquisition team for their hard work over the last five months on this project.

Finally, please join me in welcoming our new colleagues to the Marshall family
