Listers Group

Core Values

Since the beginning, Listers core values have not changed. From the day that Terry and Keith opened their first Audi and Volkswagen business in Coventry, their focus has never changed.

The Listers' ethos of success has been built around consistency in every aspect of the business, in employment, training and in customer satisfaction.

Longstanding Relationships

Throughout the eighties and nineties, Listers company surged forward with the completion of new stand-alone centres for Audi Coventry, Audi Worcester and Volkswagen Worcester as well as the purchase of two new Mercedes-Benz centres in Lincolnshire, whilst two of the other Volkswagen retailers relocated to newly built concept sites.

Going Strong

Group activities progressed during the noughties, when two outgoing Volvo franchises were replaced with three new Honda sites. The turn of the year saw the first Listers Toyota market area with three sites opening in Lincolnshire, then later the same year saw Listers opening its fourth and fifth Volkswagen centres in Evesham and Nuneaton, and its third and fourth Mercedes-Benz sites.

The company surged forward again with the completion of four more Toyota centres, two Lexus centres, two Audi centres and one Honda centre, plus two BMW and two MINI centres, along with the accreditation received for Volkswagen Stratford Van Service Centre.
