Pendragon became a public limited company when the vehicle division of Williams PLC was de-merged in 1989. At that time the operation included 19 car dealerships, representing specialist and luxury franchises, in addition to the contract hire business known as Pendragon Contracts.
Since then Pendragon PLC has enhanced its portfolio and expanded considerably through a series of new builds and acquisitions, and now represent over 20 brands in the UK and the USA.
Its national scale, wide portfolio of manufacturer partners, combined with superior IT platform and value pricing means it remains the number one internet motor retailer and the largest automotive dealer in Europe. Pendragon Vehicle Management is part of Pendragon PLC and a major FN50 leasing company providing complete fleet solutions with a multitude of blue chip clients across a diverse range of sectors.
