More about GK
The Chesterfield-based GK Group is one of the longest established dealer groups in the AM100 that runs 5 Ford showrooms, 1 Mazda showroom, 1 Kia showroom and a large Accident Repair centre in the towns of Alfreton, Chesterfield, Dronfield, Mansfield, Retford and Worksop.

The future of Perrys
Perrys Chairman Ken Savage said:“We are very happy to announce the acquisition which extends our relationship with Ford, Mazda and Kia. The addition of GK Group will make a great fit for Perrys with our new dealerships located just south of our existing sites in Yorkshire.
The group’s ongoing success can be credited to its commitment to the core values of customer care, high-quality vehicles and staff retention.I am sure everybody will welcome the GK staff into Perrys and make them feel part of the team.
Alongside the arrival of new franchises in the last few years, such as Nissan in 2013 and Hyundai in January this year, the addition of GK Group Ltd will add considerable scale to the group.”
This news follows last week’s announcement that Perrys have broken ground on their brand new £7m, multi-franchise development in Preston.
Expected to open in April 2016, the move from their Blackpool Road premises will see state-of-the-art Mazda, Kia and Vauxhall showrooms conveniently built right off Junction 31a of the M6.
