Top 10 Motor Retail Group, Marshall Motor Group, who acquired Ridgeway in May of this year, are poised to open a flagship state-of the-art Jaguar and Land Rover dealership on Milton Gate, Milton Park near Didcot this autumn (Monday 31st October). Following the acquisition of Ridgeway, the new facility will be named “Marshall Jaguar Oxford” and “Marshall Land Rover Oxford” to reflect the new ownership.
5 Milton Gate is the largest plot at 3.33 acres next to the A34 Milton Interchange and at the gateway to Milton Park.
Adrian Wallington, Marshall JLR Franchise Director, said: “The opening of this stunning facility represents another step in our growth and investment strategy in Oxfordshire for the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. Both brands have a fantastic range of products and some exciting developments planned. This brand new facility will enhance both the customer and our colleague’s experiences.”
Adrian added “Milton Gate, is perfect for our requirements, both in terms of the immediate neighbourhood and the road network. Having the second largest business and science park in Europe next door to us will certainly help our plans to further increase penetration of the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in Oxfordshire."
All colleagues of Ridgeway Land Rover and Jaguar facilities in Cumnor will transfer to Milton Gate (and those locations will close). Marshall also represents Land Rover in Bedford, Cambridge, Lincoln, Melton Mowbray, Peterborough and Halesworth and the Jaguar brand in Cambridge, Ipswich, Lincoln and Peterborough.
This November will also see Marshall start a second development in the Thames Valley region – a new Jaguar Land Rover showroom on Greenham Business Park - Newbury's largest business park. We’ll bring you the news on that development as it is released.
