Arnold Clark Acquires The MG Franchise

20th October 2016 Paul Andrews

This month, Scottish family business Arnold Clark has acquired the MG franchise, which became the 24th manufacturer to join the company.

The franchise will be sold from the Rutherglen branch in Scotland, at the same plot as the Volkswagen branch. There will, however, be a dedicated MG building that will be headed up by the same branch staff as customers have come to know at the Rutherglen site.

Gavin Mackenzie, Arnold Clark MG Franchise Manager, said: "We’re really excited about taking on the MG franchise in Scotland. This will give drivers the chance to enjoy this great brand, which is seeing a welcome resurgence in the market. From the MG3 supermini to the family-friendly MG GS SUV, we can’t wait to display the latest models in our showroom."

The branch will retail two MG models, the MG3 supermini and MG GS.

Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, commented: "As one of the UK’s leading car retailers, we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Arnold Clark to our national dealer network. Our partnership with Arnold Clark, who are one of the biggest and most well-managed dealer groups in the country, is a significant move for MG, as it provides a strong retail platform for future growth and shows the MG brand and product range can attract even the largest retailers."
