The Suffolk-based Marriott Motor Group is expanding with the acquisition of Ipswich Renault, Skoda and Dacia dealer Bristo’s.

Marriott already has Audi and Volkswagen car dealerships in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Kings Lynn, with a fourth VW car dealership in Stowmarket, VW van centres in Ipswich and Bury and a Skoda dealership in Kings Lynn.

Paul Barnard, Marriott Motor Group managing director, said: “Bristo’s has enjoyed a long and successful history of motor retailing in Ipswich and has deservedly gained an excellent reputation for its high standards of customer service. It is now our responsibility to maintain and improve on those standards.”

Mark Sherman, franchise manager at Bristo’s, added: “Bristo’s have been serving Ipswich and the surrounding areas for more than 100 years and being part of the Marriott Motor Group further strengthens our focus on high levels of satisfied customers.”
