Camden Motor Group

More than 55,000 new cars a year are sold by this Milton Keynes company from its showrooms across the Midlands and southeast England. The firm, established in 1934, was bought out by management in 1996. It restructured in 2001, demerging its finance company, Yes Car Credit, which offers loans for cars to people refused credit elsewhere. Yes Car Credit was sold to Provident Financial in 2002 for £141m. Camden’s latest figures show slim margins on sales of £768m in 2001, when it had 1,383 staff.
