Abergavenny-based Motorcare Motor Factors has been taken over by AAG, parent of the GroupAuto buying group.
The Motorcare chain comprises of six branches in Wales and the West of England. A branch in Brecon was opened as recently as April of this year.
Motorcare Discount (as it was originally known) was founded in 1984 in Abergavenny by Allen Bailey as an accessory and parts retail store, catering mainly for DIYers. In common with many parts shops it started doing an increasing amount of trade work, and it moved to an industrial unit in the mid-1990s.
Further branches followed from 2010 onwards, and the family-run chain picked up several GroupAuto member awards, including Member of the Year for the large factor, light vehicle category in 2017 (pictured)
