Blade Volkswagen

Blade Volkswagen was the founder member of Blade Group when it was originally established in Gloucester in 1995. Back then, little was it realised that just sixteen years later the Group would comprise of ten car dealerships and ten motorcycle dealerships! At the beginning the company employed just 17 staff. Today, that number has grown to around 350 employed at locations across Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire.

Much like the astounding growth of Blade Group, when "Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH" (Volkswagen to you and I today) was founded in 1937 it is unlikely that anyone would have guessed that it would go on to become Europe's largest carmaker. 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, today employing nearly 600 people nationwide.

The concept of the Volkswagen - the people's car - was to offer an affordable and reliable means of transport for everyone. At Blade Volkswagen that concept lives on today. Volkswagen isn't just about innovative engineering and advanced technology – it's about people (it's even in the name). That's why at the heart of Volkswagen's ambition is a business that creates delighted customers. Customers who come back again and again. It sounds simple, doesn't it? But they know it isn't easy, which is why the manufacturer works together with its dealership network – dealerships like Blade Volkswagen - every step of the way, creating a host of programmes and initiatives that are designed to help the local dealerships help you … our customer.
