Super Group & Allen Ford announcement

Super Group and Allen Ford has continued its expansion into the UK car retail sector with the acquisition of SMC with effect from the 5th July 2017.

SMC is an ideal and complimentary fit for the Allen Ford Group’s existing dealerships in terms of organisational culture, franchise representation and geographical location. The expanded group will now represent the Ford Brand in twenty four locations, the Kia Brand in four, two Suzuki and one each of Mazda and Fiat.

The directors of Supergroup and Allen Ford would like to thank Mike Warnes and his team for managing the transaction with professionalism and efficiency and would like to take this opportunity to welcome all new and existing employees to the expanded Group.

About the SMC Group

SMC are now part of the Allen Ford Group

Allen Ford Group’s partnership with the manufacturer stretches back over 100 years to when its founder, Charles Henry Allen, first worked with the famous Model T Ford. Now Allen Ford is firmly established as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Ford cars and vans to private motorists and businesses. Our network of over 24 Ford locations stretches across the south of England, from Bath to the West Midlands to Essex and now Kent. The acquisition really does consolidate our presence with Ford in the South East and around London and means that we will be able to realise some of the efficiencies of scale as a result. The SMC Group’s dealerships can be found at FordStore Crayford. Gravesend, Slough, Uxbridge, Windsor, Sittingbourne Ford, Sittingbourne Suzuki, Hillingdon Suzuki and Heathrow Service Centre.

With both new and used cars and commercial vehicles on sale at our dealerships and dedicated Ford Transit Centres, plus our participation in the Motability Scheme, we can satisfy most drivers' requirements. We are also one of the country’s largest Privilege dealers, so we can sell Ford cars at special prices to the manufacturer’s employees and their relatives.

In addition to vehicle supply, we also deliver aftersales care via our service centres. Meanwhile, our online parts and accessories shop enables you to securely order components and products for your model in just a few clicks.

We are very proud to represent the Ford Motor Company and strive to uphold its reputation through our high standards of customer service and competitive prices.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you in person at one of our retail locations soon.
