The Super Group Dealerships division in the United Kingdom consists of 32 dealerships through the acquisitions of Allen Ford, Essex Auto Group and Slough Motor Corporation. Allen Ford is the second largest independently owned Ford franchise network in the UK with 18 Ford dealerships and four Kia dealerships. Essex Auto Group owns five Ford, two Kia, one Mazda and one Fiat dealerships in the Essex region. Slough Motor Corporation owns in total six Ford dealerships and Suzuki dealerships in Kent and Berkshire.
Allen Ford's partnership with the manufacturer stretches back over 100 years to when its founder, Charles Henry Allen, first worked with the famous Model T Ford. From this point onward, the business grew, and was passed down through the Allen family until 1997. The expansion continued and in 2014 was acquired by Supergroup. Now Allen Ford is firmly established as one of the UK's leading suppliers of Ford cars and vans to private motorists and businesses. Our network of 19 locations stretches across the south of England and as far as the West Midlands.
Our network of over 20 locations stretches across the south of English, from Bath to the West Midlands to Essex.

With both new and used cars and commercial vehicles on sale at our dealerships and dedicated Ford Transit Centres, plus our participation in the Mobility Scheme, we can satisfy most drivers' requirements.
