Hillendale acquires Bolton Jaguar dealership

Land Rover dealership Hillendale has opened its first Jaguar showroom in Bolton.

Based at Lomeshaye Business Park in Nelson, the firm has expanded into the Jaguar dealership franchise with the acquisition of Stratstone Jaguar in Bolton from Pendragon Group for an undisclosed sum.

A total of 15 employees have transferred to Hillendale which brings its total workforce to 65.

Lee Collins, managing director of Hillendale Group said “We are delighted to have completed the purchase of Hillendale Jaguar Bolton. We are looking forward to welcoming the team in Bolton to the Hillendale family and being involved with the amazing vehicles Jaguar produce.” Keith Melling of Napthens, who advised on the deal, said: “Hillendale has had a successful, longstanding relationship with Jaguar Land Rover and the acquisition of a Jaguar dealership is the natural next step for the business. Hillendale has a real reputation for fantastic customer service which has previously led to them being shortlisted as Dealer of the Year and that’s sure to continue with their expansion into Jaguar.”
