The Batchelors Way.

Why Should You Deal With Us?

A very brief history

We have been in business for over 30 years and are proud to represent Suzuki and Mitsubishi in Ripon and York, North Yorkshire. We are family owned business, with our company motto TLC not PLC close to our hearts.

Established in 1987, Batchelors of Ripon Limited as we were then known, was established by David Batchelor. The Business did not formally start trading until 1989 with the then up and coming Vauxhall franchise.

By 1996, business was booming in Ripon  and the decision was taken to add the Suzuki franchise, in a small showroom with the ajoining bodyshop. Batchelors continued to grow over the coming years, aquiring a business called Chapmans of Pickering and also adding the Mitsubishi franchise to our Ripon operation too.

Fastforward to 2011, Tony Denton, Our Managing Director/Owner joined the business as Sales Manager in Ripon to support David in the operation of the Ripon site. Discussions quickly progressed and the opportunity presented Tony the opportunity to aquire the business in July 2013 from David.

Since then, Batchelors has undergone substantial restructuring, including the difficult decision to terminate the Vauxhall franchise in Ripon in July 2016. October 2017 saw substantial investment in our Ripon facility and the former Vauxhall Showroom was fully refurbished to meet the brand standards of Suzuki. At the end of 2018, Batchelors Motor Group was proud to announce the addition of Suzuki and MItsubishi in York.
