Park's Motor Group

Park's Motor Group is a large company based in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire in Central Scotland. It is one of the most well-known and recognisable brands in Scotland. The company is wholly owned by Douglas Park who founded the business in 1971 as a coach and bus operation with three vehicles. They moved into the motor trade in 1977 with a single new & used car dealership in Hamilton selling Datsun cars.

Now Park's are arguably Scotland's leading coach operators with in excess of 120 coaches, which cater for both business and leisure travel throughout Britain and Europe. The company provides VIP coaches for most Central Scotland-based Scottish Premier League football teams as well as running express services throughout Great Britain on behalf of both National Express and Scottish Citylink. The coaching business was strengthened in 1996 with the acquisition of Trathens Travel Services Ltd, an express coach operator running out of Plymouth and incorporating StarRiders (a well known sleeper bus operator).

The new & used car dealership side of the business has continued to expand and Park's now have 27 dealerships across central Scotland with franchises for a number of manufacurers ranging from Kia to BMW. Six petrol forecourts and a vehicle repair business complete the line-up.
