Vertu Motors came into existence in 2006 as a business aimed at consolidating the retail business in the United Kingdom. Due to huge potential and a positive outlook, the company gained attention quickly and joined the Alternative Investment Market, an affiliate of the London Stock Exchange. The company made a significant acquisition of Bristol Street Motors, a company that precedes Vertu by close to 100 years. Located in the vicinity of Birmingham, Bristol Motors is the largest car dealership under Vertu’s ambit.
Primarily, Vertu sales new and used cars to customers across the United Kingdom. In addition, the company offers spare parts for private and commercial cars. The company maintains a bodyshop and servicing facilities across the U.K. Some of the brands in which Vertu deals include Volkswagen, Honda, Volvo, and Land Rover and Jaguar. Grantham Motor Company and Bristol Street Fourth Investments Limited are some of the company’s subsidiaries. Vertu has its headquarters in Gateshead, U.K. The company trades on the LSE as VTU.
