Eddie Wright History – 85 Years In 2018!

by admin on December 13, 2017

Here at Eddie Wright, we are entering a celebratory year as well as a new year, as we celebrate 85 Years!

Our dealership was first established in 1933, by founder Eddie Wright, who passed on the business down his family, becoming one of the oldest family-run motor dealers in the UK.

Eddie Wright Dealership Mid 1960sIn the 85 years that our dealership has been running, we have made a reputable mark on the car industry in Scunthorpe. In the late 1940s, we set up the first Ford dealership in the area, followed by the first Volkswagen car seller in the 1950s, to then go on to establish Scunthorpe’s first Renault dealership in the 1960s!

To cover all the motoring needs of motorists in Scunthorpe, we also opened a motorcycle dealership in the 1950s, selling Velocette’s, Matchless, and Ariel motorbikes!Eddie Wright Renault Dealer 1972

Since our doors opened in 85 years ago, here at Eddie Wright, we have strived to be the very best car dealer, with recognition in recent years coming from making the final of Car Supermarket of the Year in 2012, and Best Used Car Retailer in 2013.

Our passion to deliver to our customers stems from our strong grounding of family values as a family-run business. Having Jane and Paul, the third generation of the Wright family, involved in the running of our business echoes the passion that was established when founder, Eddie, set up the dealership back in the 1930s.

As we continue to search for people to work with us who share a dedication to provide an excellent service to our customers, with handpicked and quality vehicles, we plan to keep Eddie Wright’s mantra successful for another 85 years!Eddie Wright
