GK Group

The Kenning family has been trading cars in Derbyshire for more than 100 years. Sir George Kenning and his sons developed the Kenning Motor Group, but following their deaths, the company was subject to a take-over in 1986. The following year, Sir George’s grandsons George, David and Richard established GK Group, which now has dealerships mainly in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and Dumfries and Galloway and reported sales of £134.3m in 2004.
