News: Gilder Group acquires Mushroom Garage


The Gilder Group has acquired Peter Brooks Honda for an undisclosed sum.

The Sheffield-based company, which owns 11 Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Volkswagen Commercial sites, takes ownership of Peter Brooks' two Honda retail sites on Chesterfield Road, Sheffield, and Doncaster Road, Rotherham.

Garry Scotting, chief executive at the Gilder Group said: "In our second acquisition of 2011, we have added a new franchise and a popular brand to our existing retail portfolio.

"As we continue our planned growth strategy, this latest acquisition will see our current turnover grow to around £200m and we'll welcome 58 new members of staff to bring us to just under 600 employees.

"We plan to invest and develop the two sites over the next few years to enhance the service offered to customers and facilitate a seamless transition into The Gilder Group portfolio."

The Gilder name dates back to 1912 but the Gilder Group Ltd was established as the new company name when Garry Scotting acquired the company from Peter Gilder in 2002.

The group has been operating a Volkswagen dealership in Wickersley, Rotherham since 1999.
