Essex Auto Group has evolved over the past 25 years as a strong, independent, family-run motor retail group. We are dedicated to retailing excellence for our customers in all aspects of our services. Professionalism and integrity are integral parts of our culture and a constant striving to 'do it even better for you'. We employ around 300 people from the local area. The promotion of staff from within the business is enthusiastically encouraged. We are committed to the implementation of proactive measures to help protect and sustain the environment we operate in for future generations. The Group has already shown its commitment to this effect, by the implementation of energy-saving technology and the use of environmentally-sensitive materials during the building of our new dealerships over the past 4 years. We have strong links with the community and keenly assist in sponsoring sports at different levels from Essex County Cricket Club to local teams and schools. In this way we continually strive to give something back to our community.
