Jennings Ford Direct Company Overview

Jennings Ford Direct is an integral part of the Jennings Motor Group. In 1917, under stewardship of founder Septimus Jennings, the business was one of the first to be appointed as a Ford dealer in the UK. From then Jennings Motor Group continued to grow within the Jennings family, until a management buyout in the early 1990’s and then in 2005, was bought out by current managing director Nas Kahn.

The group has steadily grown and developed by investing in new dealerships and modernising existing ones to ensure that it stays at the forefront of the motor industry. It now includes further Ford franchises, along with other leading brands including Mazda, Kia, SEAT and Harley-Davidson.
