JCT600, the Bradford-based privately owned motor retail, has expanded its portfolio of prestige car marques with the acquisition of two Jaguar and Land Rover businesses.

The Doncaster Jaguar and Doncaster Land Rover dealerships have been purchased from Pendragon, owner of Stratsone, for an undisclosed sum.

All staff at the businesses have been transferred to JCT600. The new dealerships will operate as JCT600 Jaguar Doncaster and JCT600 Land Rover Doncaster respectively.

The company said these latest addition extends customer choice and reinforces its geographic coverage.

Chief Exec John Tordoff said: “The addition of Jaguar and Land Rover to our stable of prestigious car marques is a perfect fit – it is the first time we have represented the brand which was the obvious missing link in our portfolio.

He added: “We look forward to building on our success in Doncaster, recruiting new talent to work alongside the existing team as we develop the dealerships over the coming months and years.”

JCT600 employs over 2,250 people across the region and recently announced record sales with turnover reaching £1.251 billion.
