A brief history – Rybrook

Founded in 1937 by H Whale as Ryland Motors, the Group’s origins were in truck sales and coachbuilding. By the 1950s, Ryland was a Limited Company and the company’s focus changed to passenger cars.In 1994 the Group, by then one of the UK’s largest automotive groups, became a plc under the Chairmanship of Peter Whale, grandson of the company’s founder.

After 9 years as a plc however, Peter led an MBO returning the Group to private ownership. Since then concentration has been on the specialist car sector. 2006 witnessed the formation of Rybrook Holdings Ltd., with Managing Director Henry Whale confirming the group’s aims for future expansion in this sector.The Group represents Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, MINI, Jaguar, Land Rover, smart, Volvo and Honda and in 2010 Rybrook was named as one of the 3 automotive retailers in the UK representing McLaren.
