Skipton business joins leading national motor group

Leading motoring group Sytner has added a Skipton business to its portfolio of Volkswagen dealerships in Yorkshire.

The acquisition sees Volkswagen Skipton, formerly White Rose Volkswagen, becoming part of the UK’s leading prestige motor retail group, alongside showrooms in Leeds, Harrogate and Huddersfield.

Commenting on the deal, Sytner Volkswagen franchise director Robert Scaife said: “We are pleased to bring the Skipton business under the Sytner brand, and look forward to delivering our consistently high levels of service to customers old and new.”

The premises, situated at Crosshills, midway between Keighley and Skipton, offers a full range of new and approved used car sales as well as comprehensive after-sales servicing using genuine Volkswagen parts.

Robert added: “Great pride is taken to ensure every Sytner customer is treated as an individual and we are passionate that each one is 100 per cent satisfied by the service they receive by all departments within our business.

“We believe high staff morale delivers exceptional customer service and the Sytner Group recently achieved fourth place in the Sunday Times’ list of ’25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2014’ in recognition of its commitment to ongoing employee training, development and engagement.”

The group is the only company in the UK to have maintained a top five position for five successive years in the prestigious annual listing. This year’s score was Sytner’s highest and reflected the group’s high marks for employee pride and confidence in future company performance.

“The Skipton dealership is a solid, successful business,” said Robert, “and we look forward to building on those foundations as we introduce the Sytner brand values to loyal customers.”

Sytner Volkswagen Skipton is located on Skipton Road, Crosshills, Keighley. For more information contact 01535 614400 or visit
