Founded in 1875 by George Thurlow, this group sells new and used agricultural machinery and Vauxhall cars from 20 outlets in East Anglia, Bedfordshire and Bucks. It also operates Saab and Chevrolet aftersales franchises. Chaired by John Thurlow, 78, and his son James, 44, and led by group managing director Simon Bottomley, 47, it has grown through acquisitions, including this year’s purchase of two Motorbodies dealerships in Luton.
