Autosupplies Group completes Leisureways purchase


Date: 17-Oct-2019

Autosupplies Group has successfully completed the purchase of Leisureways (The Happy Motorist) of Rotherham. 

Having formed a strong relationship with the company in the past 12 months, Autosupplies Group has overseen a very seamless transition of ownership, boosting the business with new brands and products as it looks to grow its trade business in Rotherham and the surrounding areas. 

Leisureways is a long-established family business, serving customers in Rotherham for more than 60 years. 

Autosupplies Group managing director, David Clarke, said: “I’d like to pay tribute to Leisureways directors Ron and Trevor Hinchliffe for their co-operation throughout the acquisition process. It has long been their desire that Leisureways remain independently owned and I look forward to carrying on this tradition in the months and years ahead. 

“We are placing considerable investment into the business including the recruitment of new staff, increased stock availability, infrastructure and logistics. Leisureways is widely known for its retail business and so we are looking to replicate this success in the trade with exceptional customer service to independent garages throughout Rotherham.”

Autosupplies Chesterfield is one of the single largest motor factor sites in the UK with over 100 staff and 70 vans. In October 2017, the Autosupplies Group of Companies purchased Butlers Automotive of Barnsley.
