About SMC Group - your local car dealer

The SMC Motor Group is privileged to have a stellar reputation amongst customers in the South East of England. Ours is one of the most trusted dealership groups in the country, with eight premises across the South East.

Our success can be traced back to our beginnings in 1982. Founded by Mike Warnes and Leon Friedman, the Slough Motor Company quickly established a reputation for outstanding customer service and quality vehicles. Since then the group has gone from strength to strength, with a state-of-the-art Ford dealership opening at our Gravesend site in 1990, as well as a £1 million refurbishment of our Sittingbourne premises in 2001.

As of the time of writing, the SMC group employs over 350 people and represents some of the biggest names in the automotive industry: Ford & Suzuki. Our ideals and principles are summed up by our mission statement.

At SMC we want to be recognised for delivering an outstanding customer experience through engaged, empowered, valued and trusted team members

Our values;

  • Respect
  • Fulfilment
  • Empowerment
  • Teamwork
  • Community
