Our History

100 combined years of sales experience | 200 combined years of service experience

After working within the Volvo Franchise for over a combined 90 years, Len Hallows, Richard Ingram and Tony Petrie became proud owners of their first Volvo Retailer in Hinckley (formerly Frank Taylor Ltd) in August 2006. Within a year, this first dealership in Hinckley had been awarded Most Improved Dealer within the Volvo network.

They obtained their second Volvo retailer in Coventry (formerly Tollbar) in September 2008. The team, headed up by Len Hallows, Managing Director and supported by Directors Richard Ingram and Tony Petrie, had worked within the Volvo franchise in the Midlands for most of their working life. Between them they had worked in just about every position in the Volvo franchise, from apprentice technician to Dealer Principal.

Between 2011 and 2014, the two TMS retailers won four Area 4 Dealer of the Year awards for their work with Volvo. In 2014 TMS Motor Group expanded its operations by successfully acquiring the Kia Franchise for the Hinckley, Nuneaton, and Tamworth areas. TMS Kia started trading in a temporary showroom at the Trinity Marina in Hinckley in the same year.

This temporary site became a permanent one in 2015 as a completely new dealership was constructed at Trinity Marina as the home for TMS Volvo Hinckley and TMS Kia. Later in the same year, Len’s four sons, Ben, Tom, Dominic, and Oliver, were all appointed as Directors, further cementing TMS as a family orientated business.

TMS Motor Group celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2016.

TMS History

In 2018, the TMS Volvo Coventry retailer underwent a massive redevelopment project to transform it into a Volvo Retail Experience (VRE) space. The aim of VRE is to create an environment for customers in which high levels of visual transparency are key. Large exterior and interior glazing allows customers to see all activity in the new workshops, turning the spotlight on what is often regarded as ‘behind-the-scenes’. Inside the showroom, there is a balanced focus on physical and digital presentation, making sure the sales and service areas are completely integrated to deliver an open, holistic environment.

The redeveloped TMS Volvo Coventry retailer re-opened to customers in October 2018.

In 2019 TMS Motor Group acquired the Volvo dealership on Almond Road, Leicester. A move that increased the operations of the family-owned TMS Group to a trio of sites extending its reach along the M69 corridor from the already well established Coventry and Hinckley sites into Leicester, further cementing the TMS Motor Group's partnership with the Volvo brand.

In July 2020 TMS Motor Group acquired the Sandicliffe Kia Leicester dealership. A move that complements the family owned TMS Groups' existing Kia retailer in Hinckley and further cements the TMS Motor Group's partnership with the Kia brand.

With the increasing popularity of the electric vehicle market, TMS Motor Group have consistently provided top levels of service to all those clients who visit their business. To underline this philosophy in August 2021, TMS Volvo gained its Electric Vehicle Accreditation and in August 2022 TMS Kia gained its Electric Vehicle Accreditation too. The scheme encourages dealerships to further develop their ability in selling and servicing electric vehicles. It recognises dealers’ expertise in the electric vehicle sector and promotes industry standards for the benefit of the consumer. EVA is endorsed by the Government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Energy Saving Trust.
