Worcester Carsales

Stuart Grieveson says he was only 13 when he sold his first car for Worcester Carsales, the company his father Derrick founded in 1953. Of eight dealerships in Worcester, Shropshire and the West Midlands, three are focused on selling Vauxhall cars while the rest sell a combination of Vauxhall, Daewoo, Suzuki and Chrysler Jeep. Growth has been driven by the acquisition of two garage groups in 2003. This helped to boost sales 79% a year, from £7.5m in 2001 to £42.7m in 2004.
