Without travelling too far from our starting town, the John Banks Group has come a long way from the small garage and petrol station in Bury St Edmunds set up in the early 1970's to its current seven locations running along the A14 corridor in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
Today, the Company has in excess of 160 staff and handles over £50m worth of business annually, the privately owned family business is now ranked as one of the Top 200 Dealer Groups in the UK which proves we continue to serve the area and the community growing and building our brand.
We host main franchises for Honda Cars and Honda Motorcycles at the head office location in Bury St Edmunds making it an ideal destination centre for people on motorcycles as we also have a Starbucks coffee stop on site as well as Suzuki cars while our Ipswich site holds two large franchises for both Honda and Suzuki having been trading in Ipswich since 1998. At Cambridge we now hold franchises for Honda, Renault and Dacia cars and Renault commercial vans. Honda Scooters and mopeds are also available from our Honda Cambridge site.
The group handles all aspects of motor vehicle requirements including sales, servicing, parts, MOT, hire, finance solutions for customers as well as motorcycle helmets, clothing, accessories, repair and customising of all types of motorcycles.
Whilst having grown to a company of mid economic size primarily over the past twenty five years, the John Banks Group remains a close-knit family concern. Currently, the Chief Executive, the Managing Director and the Sales Director of the company are the children of the founder, five times British motocross champion and world contender in the 1960's John Banks, with the second generation of sons and daughters recently joining the Company in minority roles working their way up through the Company structure ensuring the continuity of the family business for the future.
Throughout the company's history, the Banks family can be said to have followed good business practice - grasping opportunities as they've appeared, reviewing operations in order to remain efficient and keeping up with manufacturers' changing demands and achieving high manufacturer standards throughout all the franchises. Above all, the Banks family has always been careful to continue to meet the needs of customers, ensuring that they enjoy the best service and finest customer attention at all times and requiring specific ethics and integrity from all their staff at all locations meeting with staff daily to ensure service and quality.
Working closely in the community with charities and local organisations John Banks Director's like to give back to the local area and try to assist in charity support as well as growth and development throughout the areas we trade in continually assessing needs and assistance to worthy causes to continue to create a growth of business and development within the Suffolk and Cambridge regions.
