Steer Automotive Group continues expansion

Steer Automotive Group has continued its ambitious growth strategy by announcing another acquisition in the North East.

Vertu Accident Repair Centre Newcastle has now joined the group, boosting capacity in the region.

Now operating as Steer Newcastle West, the site was part of the Vertu Motors group, which operates a chain of over 180 franchised and non-franchised motor dealerships.

Richard Steer, Steer Automotive Group chief executive, said: “The acquisition of the successful Vertu Accident Repair Centre Newcastle continues to build on our opportunity to become the leading accident repair business in the region and provides a strategic fit which builds on our existing nine-site Steer North East operation. Myself and our colleagues across Steer Automotive Group are excited to welcome the team from Vertu and we look forward to working with them.”
