About Arnold Clark

Arnold Clark was established in 1954, and the business has expanded from a single-car showroom in Glasgow to a UK-wide organisation, now employing and training over 9,000 members of staff.

With 200 dealerships across the UK, Arnold Clark has over 15,000 new and used cars in stock. The company represents 23 new car manufacturers, and provides servicing, parts, accessories, garage equipment and repairs.
