Eastbourne Motoring Centre Limited (EMC) has acquired Uckfield Vauxhall from Goldsmith & Allcorn Limited for an undisclosed sum.
The deal was brokered by the automotive consultants, ASE, as part of their Dealmatch service. EMC sought to increase their representation in a local market where they represented Vauxhall & Suzuki for a number of years.
Mark Lambird, Managing Director of Eastbourne Motoring Centre Limited, said: “We are delighted to announce that Uckfield Vauxhall has now joined the Eastbourne Motoring Centre Group and are very much looking forward to working with new team members and warmly welcoming our new customers. We are very excited to share best practice and aim to deliver the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction in both sales & service to our highly valued customers. As brand ambassadors, we can offer exceptional value on both new and Network Q Vauxhalls across the car and commercial range plus hold over 200 quality used cars of all makes and models in group stock. Exciting times are ahead!’’
Ian McMahon, ASE Partner, who advised Eastbourne Motoring Centre, said:“The acquisition allows Mark and his senior team at EMC the opportunity to further develop their market area, and promote many of their customer centric practices to this new point of representation. I have total confidence that the transaction will see synergies for EMC and for their new potential customers at the Uckfield site whilst promoting the Vauxhall brand further. I’m delighted that ASE have been able to assist Mark in making this acquisition and I am excited to see another family managed business thrive in their local market.’’
