We are delighted to announce we have reached agreement with TrustFord for the acquisition of Ford dealership premises in Woodford Green, Walthamstow, Enfield and Potters Bar. The new dealerships will join our existing locations in Bishop's Stortford, Hertford and FordStores in Stevenage, St Albans and the newly redeveloped Harlow.
Gates have been a family owned and operated business for over 97 years. Significantly, when the company was established at a time when the motor industry was in its infancy, it began from premises in High Road, Woodford.
Chairman, Heath Greenall said: "This acquisition will see Gates return to the area where my Great Grandfather started in 1920". Heath continues, "The new additions to the group will complement our current locations geographically as we continue to serve our valued customers to a wider area".
All of the staff employed at these locations will transfer to Gates.
