About Arnold Clark

Are you looking to reference some facts about Arnold Clark in your social post?

Please refer to the points below:

Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd was founded in 1954 when Sir Arnold Clark left the Royal Air Force and used his demob money to buy a Morris Ten Four for £70. After restoring the car to its original condition, he sold it for a profit. From this first venture, Arnold Clark began to buy and sell cars.

Arnold Clark took off from a single-car showroom on Glasgow’s Park Road, given flight by its founder’s simple philosophy: to offer genuine value for money and customer service of the highest level.

Arnold Clark is Europe’s largest independent, family-run car retailer. With over 200 branches in the UK, the company sells over 200,000 cars a year in locations stretching from Elgin to Southampton.

While Arnold Clark is a name that’s synonymous with vehicle sales, there’s much more to the business than you see on the showroom floor. The Group also offers parts and servicing departments, an accident repairs division, insurance services, vehicle rental, a fleet management division, high-quality training and more.
