Holding continued: “The business has been trading for over 65 years and has built a great reputation in the Stoke-on-Trent area thanks to its team and culture. We are confident that it will be an excellent addition to our group, and we look forward to working with Mark and the team going forward. This is an exciting addition to the Vella Group as we look to continue our recent growth via both targeted new builds and the right acquisition opportunities.”

Sue Hughes, previous owner of Brocksford Motors, said:

“We are pleased to have sold the business to The Vella Group. It was important to us to choose a new owner who would look after the people who have worked hard for us over many years, and The Vella Group has a great reputation in the industry for supporting its team members. We are sure that the business will go from strength to strength under this new ownership and wish them all the best for the future.”
