We wanted to share the strategic acquisitions of Chartwell and M&A Coachworks, two highly coveted and respected businesses renowned for their expertise in repairing the world’s leading vehicle marques. This strategic move significantly bolsters our capabilities in the luxury vehicle repair sector, expanding our luxury repair footprint and increasing capacity to effectively support the world’s leading OEM factory recommendations, approvals and its highly valued dealership retailer partners. 

Chartwell, established in 1966, and M&A Coachworks, established in 1971, collectively bring over a century of experience and luxury sector repair expertise to the Group. The two collective organisations hold recommendation and approval for iconic luxury brands such as Porsche, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, McLaren and Maserati. 

Chris Brightmore, Managing Director of Chartwell, will remain operationally responsible for the Chartwell business. At M&A Coachworks, whilst George Dionisiou steps down as chairman, Dean Dionisiou, Sales Director and other family members remain in the business with Danny Rota as Managing Director. The Managing Directors of both businesses will be supported by the Group, allowing them to continue to strengthen their partnerships with key OEM retailer partners, as structural vehicle repair technology for the world’s leading marques evolves more rapidly than ever. 

“I am delighted to welcome Chartwell and M&A Coachworks, along with their talented teams, to our Group. These iconic brands represent the pinnacle of the luxury repair market. We are dedicated to preserving the heritage of these esteemed businesses, which are strongly associated with the world's premier supercar brands. This acquisition significantly broadens our presence in the luxury sector and reinforces our dedication to superior automotive services” said Richard Steer, Chief Executive.
