Camden Motor Group

This Milton Keynes based company, which runs 28 car showrooms across the Midlands and South East, sells over 55,000 new cars a year from its dealerships and preparation centres in Northampton and Manchester. In 2001 Camden Motors demerged its finance company Yes Car Credit, which offers loans for cars to people refused credit elsewhere. Camden reported sales of £768m and 1,383 staff in 2001. Originally set up in 1934, management bought out the business from Barclays Bank in 1996, backed by Candover for an undisclosed sum.
