Lancaster Mercedes-Benz is part of the Jardine Motors Group trading as Lancaster, one of the largest prestige automotive retail groups in the UK.
Founded in 1969 by Nicholas and Ronald Lancaster, the Jardine Motors Group originated as a family-run dealership in East Anglia. At the outset, the group represented just four motoring marques: Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volvo. Jardine Motors have also acquired a flagship dealership, McLaren London, located in the luxurious area of 1 Hyde Park, Knightsbridge. In 2013, Jardine Motors Group majorly invested in the refurbishment and development of a number of dealerships within the group. These included; Ferrari & Maserati Colchester, Toyota Colchester and Milton Keynes Audi. The group is committed to maintaining a high standard and share the Jardine Matheson ethos of constant evolution.
New for 2014, Jardine Motors Group have partnered up with leading children’s mobility charity, Whizz-Kidz. It is the first time in Jardine Motors history that a charity has been selected to receive group wide support. Through the partnership with Whizz-Kidz, we will be able to help improve the lives of disabled children across many of the locations that we operate in and beyond.
Jardine Motors chose to collaborate with Whizz-Kidz due to sharing many values and a common purpose of proving mobility. Our plans to help have already been kick started by the donation of a Van to Whizz-Kidz, in order to help transport disabled children and their equipment. We will also be conducting staff fundraising throughout our dealerships, and plan to implement work experience placements for disabled youngsters.
