Grange Motors: Our Journey Begins
Grange Motors was founded by Frederick Chambers in 1956 with the first business in Brook Street, Brentwood, trading as a Service and Repair Workshop and a Petrol Station.
In December 1958, Grange Motors (Brentwood) Ltd was formed to acquire the business founded by Frederick Chambers and the business was gradually built up over the years to represent a number of marques. This included; Lotus, Volkswagen, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Jensen, Fiat and Saab.
The Grange Motors business was later taken over by his two sons, Colin and Graham Chambers. They expanded by opening up a new business in Welwyn Garden City in 1985, which was a Jaguar and Aston Martin dealership. They further expanded with a brand-new flagship site in Exeter in 1989, which served as a Jaguar and Aston Martin Dealership.
Grange Motors have been fortunate to deal with iconic marques and names throughout our history. Some of the original marques that were proudly represented, have returned to our estate many years later.
Grange Motors operates as a division of an award-winning, Motor Trader Dealer Group of the Year, Cambria Automobiles Ltd.
