Ducati Manchester Group (DMG) has acquired the insolvent Ducati Glasgow and Triumph Glasgow business, and has already welcomed customers back to its showrooms. Click here to read the original story.
DMG was founded in 2002 by Chris Booth and operates Ducati dealerships in Preston, Manchester, Stoke and Worcester.
Staff from both Scottish franchises have been retained, and will remain at the current Hillington address for the next few months. However, DMG intends to relocate the store later in 2021.
Commenting on this acquisition, DMG supremo Booth said: “It made total sense for us to include the Glasgow dealerships in our group and I am proud to be serving Scotland with all that DMG can offer. We are already planning to bring our award-winning customer service, social events, ride outs and trips to Scotland.”
Mike Robins, former owner of the Glaswegian business, has invested alongside DMG in this revived venture. He added, “I am really excited to be joining the DMG family. It’s a very successful and experienced dealer group which will bring a winning formula to Scotland.”
Tim Maccabee, managing director, Ducati UK, commented, “I am very pleased to see that Ducati Glasgow will continue to operate in Scotland representing Ducati and offering continuity to its loyal customers. The DMG group is highly regarded by Ducati which has been recognised both in the UK and globally through a number of awards for sales and service. I believe Ducati customers in Scotland are in good hands with Chris and the DMG group and an exciting future lies ahead.”
