Paul Brayley, owner of Hertfordshire based Brayley Cars, has expanded his business into Buckinghamshire for the first time following the purchase of Milton Keynes Mazda, Renault and Dacia from Marshall Motor Group. Brayley takes over the Milton Keynes sites on Barnsdale Drive with immediate effect. Resulting from a successful two years of trading at the company’s first Mazda dealership, which opened in Harpenden in May 2012 as a dual franchise with Kia, Brayleys is already gearing up for its third Mazda outlet in Essex, which will open in January 2015.
Commenting on the company’s continued growth, Paul Brayley, Managing Director, Brayley, said:
“Our latest acquisition breaks new ground for Brayley as it marks the launch of our first business in Buckinghamshire as well our first European manufacturer franchises. We are excited at the prospect of serving motorists across the county and taking the Mazda, Renault and Dacia brands forward, all of which are bringing exciting new models to market.”
Daksh Gupta, Chief Executive of Marshall commented: “Although we were not looking to sell the businesses at the time Paul approached us, it does fit our strategy to focus on building scalable businesses and strong relationships with our core brand partners. These were our only Renault and Mazda businesses so it made sense to sell them to someone who can grow scale with them as well as have a geographic presence also. Paul Brayley has a great reputation and I know our colleagues will be going to a good home. I want to thank them for all of their hard work and efforts during their time with Marshall and wish them and Paul all the best for the future.”
