100 Year Sales Experience | 200 Year 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 Dealership 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 dealership 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 Dealerships 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.
