Foundations for growth
In 1970, William decided the business needed a solid, long-term plan that would provide security for his loyal employees. After much deliberation he decided to leave Rootes Group and become a Ford Main Dealer and specialist centre for Iveco-Ford Trucks.
With a combination of great customer service and a huge choice of new and used cars, Pye Motors took on further expansion and in 1996 opened a branch in Barrow-in-Furness. The following year they took over the Ford franchise in Kendal, making them one of the largest dealers in the Bay area, combining one of the largest geographical Ford areas in the UK.
Today, Pye is still a family run business, with over 140 local employees across three branches, and a level of customer care normally associated with smaller businesses.
"While cars might be our business, customers are still at the heart of everything we do."
