News: Marquis opens flagship dealership in Rotherham


Marquis Motorhomes, the largest multi site dealership in the UK, has acquired a new site in Rotherham as it continues to expand.

The six acre retail site at Rotherham Road, Dinnington was formerly occupied by South Yorkshire Motorhomes and Caravans. Marquis South Yorkshire becomes the eleventh branch in its retail portfolio.

Marquis Motorhomes was established in 1973 and following a Management Buy Out, Marquis became privately owned together with Auto-Sleepers Ltd and form the Auto-Sleepers Group. The retail and manufacturing divisions work closely together to bring some of the best motorhomes and caravans to the UK market.

Geoff Scott, CEO of the Auto-Sleepers Group said: "Following on from the huge success of Marquis Durham, which was established in September 2012, Marquis South Yorkshire represents another significant and sound financial investment for the business and further consolidates the Marquis brand as the market leader.

"The business acquisition is a strategic opportunity for Marquis to further increase its national sales volumes into the Central regions of the UK and significantly raise the presence of the Auto-Sleepers brand."

Alongside the retail site is a secure customer storage facility for over 1,100 motorhomes and caravans and Marquis believes that it is all set to become a flagship dealership.

Mike Crouch, managing director of the Auto-Sleeper Group, said: "Marquis South Yorkshire has the perfect platform on which to launch an immediate impact in the area.

"Marquis has again seen a record increase in its market share of new motorhome registrations during 2013 despite difficult trading conditions. The expectation for further growth in 2014 remains positive even in a flat market."
