Stuart Grieveson has been selling cars for more than 30 years for Worcester Carsales, a company founded by his father in 1953. Today it has eight dealerships in the Midlands, selling new and used cars from Vauxhall, Suzuki, Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Chevrolet and, after an acquisition in Worcestershire, Kia. The company has just signed contracts with Peugeot and Ford, and future growth is expected to come from repair services, growth of the used-car business after the expansion of its site at Kingswinford, near Dudley, and further acquisitions of dealerships. Sales have grown 75% a year from £8.9m in 2002 to £47.6m in 2005.
