Neighbourhood watch benefits Rygor Commercials 03 July 2012

Control of one of Britain's best-known Mercedes-Benz truck and van dealers has changed hands – but new owner Rygor Commercials is itself a member of the German manufacturer's franchised network.

Rygor recently concluded the purchase, for an undisclosed sum, of Mudie-Bond, which had represented Mercedes-Benz trucks in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.

The deal has the backing of Mercedes-Benz UK, whose truck sales and marketing director Sam Whittaker confirms: "Rygor Commercials has a proven track record for delivering the premium quality of service commensurate with the Mercedes-Benz brand."

As well as acquiring Mudie-Bond's headquarters in Tewkesbury, and other dealerships in Kidderminster, Oxford and Brackley, Rygor has inherited the dealer's 133-strong workforce.

Rygor managing director Tim Stacey declares: "Mudie-Bond was a well established business and had an excellent reputation within the industry. What's more, it employed a first-class team of people who should see this change as presenting a great opportunity.

"This deal will allow us to combine the best of what Mudie-Bond has been doing ... and to roll them out across all of our locations," he adds.
