Another key acquisition by Lookers has been that of Jaguar Amersham. Previously owned by Jardine Motors Group, the purchase, concluded in September 2015, brings to five the total number of substantial, standalone Jaguar businesses operated by the Group.
Located on London Road, to the north-west of Watford and London, the dealership is a welcome, strategic addition to the wider Jaguar and Land Rover network in the UK. Amersham joins other very well established Jaguar businesses at Charles Hurst Jaguar Belfast; Lookers Jaguar Park Royal and at key sites in Glasgow and Motherwell through the wholly-owned Taggarts Motor Group subsidiary.
In December 2014, Lookers opened a multi-million-pound Land Rover showroom in Battersea, creating 30 jobs. The cutting-edge, custom-built site was the first Land Rover facility of its kind to be built in the UK.
Welcoming the delaership to the Group, Gordon Haining, pictured right, franchise director for Jaguar and Land Rover commented: "We look forward to welcoming the great team at Amersham Jaguar to Lookers"
