Leven Car Company Enters Administration

Leven Car Company Administration.

Not a familiar name south of the border, but this Edinburgh based company employed some 140 staff in automotive retail whose jobs are sadly now at risk. Representing a portfolio of brands including Aston Martin, KIA, Rolls Royce, Suzuki, Mitsubishi and Lotus, the company also had a premium used car operation in Edinburgh.

There has been a lot of press about the difficulties the high street is suffering, but the mainstream press seems oblivious to the pressures being faced in the retail motor trade, despite it being collectively one of the largest employers in retail.

Let’s hope that the administrators are able to find a buyer for the business.
