Mackie’s is now  part of Park’s Motor Group and has been rebranded.

Park’s Motor Group recently concluded the purchase of the property and stock from Mackie Motors in Arbroath and Brechin and will now trade as Park's.

This sees the Angus retailer become part of a much larger group with access to group stock and resources and Park’s Motor Group trading with additional Renault, Dacia, MG and Nissan locations.

A Park’s spokesperson said: “We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues to the group and the fantastic opportunity to build on the foundations built by Mackie Motors in the local communities over the last 45 years.

We have known the Mackie Motors business for a long time due to the level of success it has enjoyed within its local communities. We are delighted that we could complete the deal and look forward to growing these businesses and the wider group over the coming years.”

Kevin Mackie said: “It was a hugely difficult and emotional process for me, given our family history in the industry over the last 45 years.

“However, I am confident that in selling the dealerships to Park’s I have found a new owner who shares the same ethos and values as I do and I trust them to continue to look after the customers we have been honoured to look after over the last 45 years.”

Park’s Motor Group is a private family-owned business which takes great pride in being Scotland's leading independent motor group.

Its dealerships cover a diverse range of manufacturers including Abarth, Bentley, BMW, BMW Motorrad, Citroen, Dacia, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lotus, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, MG, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Skoda, Suzuki, Toyota and Volvo.

With an impressive range of vehicles and services, the major player in the industry boasts locations throughout Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Angus, Ayrshire, West Lothian, Stirling, Perth, Aberdeen, Inverness and the Highlands and Yorkshire.

The company is wholly owned by Douglas Park who founded the business in 1971 as a small, three-coach operation. Park's later expanded into the motor trade in 1977 with a franchise in Hamilton and a second in 1978.
