Chesterfield-based Autosupplies Group has successfully completed the purchase of Leisureways (The Happy Motorist) of Rotherham.
Leisureways is a long-established family business and until the acquisition, was a member of the A1 Motor Stores buying group.
Autosupplies’ MD David Clarke thanked the previous owners for a smooth transition and said: “We are placing considerable investment into the business including the recruitment of new staff, increased stock availability, infrastructure and logistics. Leisureways is widely known for its retail business and so we are looking to replicate this success in the trade with exceptional customer service to independent garages throughout Rotherham.”
Autosupplies Chesterfield is one of the single largest motor factor sites in the UK with over 100 staff and 70 vans. In October 2017, the firm purchased Butlers Automotive of Barnsley.
