70th Anniversary Celebrations for Sandicliffe, East Midlands

Here at Sandicliffe, 2018 marks our 70th anniversary. Proud to be a leading, local, family-run business, we have grown from a small garage in Stapleford into one of the most popular motoring companies in the East Midlands. From two founders, we now employ hundreds of staff across more than ten dealerships, including the biggest FordStore in Europe.

To mark our 70th anniversary, we will be hosting a range of events. These will celebrate our heritage and customers, as well as explore Sandicliffe’s history.

Our First Showroom

Founded in 1948, Sandicliffe’s roots were humble. The business began when our two founders, Richard and Henry, purchased a garage in Stapleford. Working long hours for little profit and at a time when there were only one million cars in the UK, the pair were dedicated and driven.

Following their entrepreneurial vision and determination to make the business a success, the business grew in 1954. Becoming a registered Ford dealership, this milestone was a foundation for the company, providing the opportunity for further growth and expansion.

In the decades since, we have bought, operated and sold dealerships in locations across the UK, from Birmingham to Lincolnshire. However, our roots have remained firmly where our founders began – in the heart of the East Midlands. As such, we continue to operate in Stapleford, where our Ford Commercial Transit Centre is located.

Sandicliffe Nottingham

In 2014, we opened a state-of-the-art, high-tech, four-storey Nissan centre – one of the biggest in Europe. Eager to continue growing, we added two additional sites to accompany our Nissan site. Not only did we build a two storey Mazda and Used Car Showroom, we also built Europe’s largest FordStore, providing our customers with even more choice.

Sandicliffe Leicester

In addition to Nottingham, we also have four site locations in Leicester boasting five different franchises. Our first location opened in Melton Mowbray in 1995, with a Ford dealership – we later added Kia here in 2006. Next came our Welford Road location in 1996 – this expanded in 2010 with Mazda. Home to a Ford Transit Centre, this is also the site of the region’s leading FordStore.

Sandicliffe Loughborough

Derby Road in Loughborough is one of our oldest dealerships and we are proud of its history. With a Ford franchise already in place, we purchased a garage here in 1965. Today, our showroom is still in the same location and we have expanded our site with Mazda (in 2010) and Nissan (2012).

Celebrate 70 Years with Sandicliffe, East Midlands

From a small garage carrying out repairs and servicing, to a dealership with a dozen showrooms, we are continuing to grow at Sandicliffe motor group. As such, our dealerships offer everything from new cars, new vans and used cars, to car servicing, accident repair and parts, as well as finance and part exchange.

Today, Sandicliffe is still run as a family-led business, with local values and customers at the heart of everything we do. That is why for our 70th anniversary, we have arranged a schedule of exciting events, to celebrate our heritage with our local community.
