About Nottingham Volkswagen
There has been a Volkswagen franchise on this site since the late fifties. In 1997 the franchise came under the control of Nottingham Volkswagen, enabling the residents of South Nottingham to experience the same quality of customer care already enjoyed in North Nottingham.
Volkswagen's relationship with the UK dates back to 1952, when the first two Beetles were sold. In 1953 Volkswagen Motors Ltd became the official UK importer, and the brand went from strength to strength.
Volkswagen also centralised its operations in 1978, and moved into its headquarters in Blakelands, Milton Keynes. From Blakelands the company controls sourcing, marketing and distribution of all vehicles and parts in the UK.
Today Volkswagen UK, as part of the Volkswagen Group, is one of the country's largest importers of vehicles, employing nearly 600 people nationwide, with the Volkswagen brand employing 180 in Blakelands alone.
