By Chris Britcher

A motor dealership has become one of the UK's biggest after its latest takeover.

The Hendy Group, which has dealerships in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, now commands a turnover of in excess of £1billion after the takeover of the Dorset and Wiltshire-based Westover Group.

It means it now employs 2,000 people with 26 franchises operating out of 83 outlets nationwide.

Hendy chief executive Paul Hendy said the acquisition was a key milestone for the company, which this year celebrates its 160th anniversary.

He said: “It’s very much business as usual and all the dealerships will continue under the Westover name for the immediate future as the business is integrated into the Hendy Group.

“Our investments and acquisitions in the last few years have put us in an extremely good position for the future and the integration of Westover will strengthen this position still further as we continue to look to the future.”
