Celebrating 20 Years ­ a successful local business

In 1998 after a couple of false starts, the dream became reality for Robin Wilson as he was given the opportunity by Vauxhall Motors to start his own business.

Having begun his career in the motor industry at the age of 17 – starting with selling commercial vehicles and steadily working his way up to senior management – Robin felt more than ready and Wilson and Co was formed. 

The original site at Scunthorpe soon became a thriving business and Robin welcomed further growth with dealerships at Grimsby and Immingham.

The biggest expansion happened in 2004 when Robin was given the opportunity to take over the largest dealership in Bolton and a smaller site in Chorley to become a major force for Vauxhall in the North West.

Twenty years on, and Robin is a ‘hands on’ Managing Director of a group with over 250 valued employees, and is proud to say 60% of whom have been with him for over 5 years, and indeed some much longer – since the very beginning!

Wilson and Co represents Vauxhall in Bolton, Chorley, Grimsby and Scunthorpe and now also two KIA sites in Lincolnshire – six successful dealerships that see Wilson and Co celebrate 20 years!

‘I would like to thank customers and staff – the ‘co’ – that have supported the business  over the years – I am proud of our achievements and it gives me great pleasure to see customers returning year after year’, said Robin who is launching a 20th Anniversary celebration by running 20 days of great offers from 8th June!

The chance to ‘Party like it’s 1998’ will see customers enjoy up to 20% off a new Vauxhall car or van, savings of up to £1000 on used cars – PLUS all cars purchased during this time will receive a choice from 20 FREE Gifts. From an iPad to a Bike, free servicing to a year’s warranty – take your pick with ANY purchase!

It doesn’t end there – 20% off servicing and accessories – means there is a reason for everyone to ‘party’!

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating that great TWENTY year achievement!
