Our Story

We have been in business since 1989 over 35 years and are proud to represent Suzuki, Renault, Dacia, Mitsubishi and Nissan in Ripon, York and Otley. We are a family-owned business with our company motto of TLC not PLC, close to our hearts. 'TLC', or Tender Loving Care is what we are all about.

Batchelors of Ripon Limited, as we were originally known, was established by David Batchelor in 1987. By 1996, the business was booming in Ripon and the decision was taken to add the Suzuki franchise, Batchelors continued to grow over the coming years, adding the Mitsubishi franchise to our Ripon operation too.

Fast forward to 2011, Tony Denton, Our Managing Director/Owner joined the business to support David in the operation of the Ripon site. Discussions quickly progressed and the opportunity presented Tony to acquire the business in July 2013 from David when he retired. David and Tony still to this day remain good friends and meet regularly for a catch up.

Since then, there has been a substantial financial investment in the Ripon facility and at the end of 2018, Batchelors Motor Group was proud to announce the addition of Suzuki and Mitsubishi to brand new showrooms in York.

Further expansion took place in 2022 when the now Batchelors Motor Group acquired another family owed business “Kineholme of Otley” again as the owner wished to retire. Kineholme of Otley are a franchised dealer for the Renault and Dacia brand and offer Sales, Service and aftersales facilities.

Finally, and most recent in 2022 our Ripon operation has been awarded the Nissan Service franchise and are now authorised repairers for Nissan for Ripon and surrounding areas.

Our customers trust us. They trust our dedicated knowledgeable team, our straight up and down approach and our great reliable cars. Sometimes we get it wrong, but we always learn from this and try to make things right with you.

So, if you fancy some TLC and are fed up with all the PLC why not call in for a chat and a cup of coffee and let’s talk about you joining the “Batchelors family”.
