The History of JCT600

The JCT600 Story

The story began back in 1946 when Edward Tordoff and two other partners first established Tordoff Motors Ltd (trading as 'Brooklands Garage'). Later, after the death of his father, Jack Tordoff bought the shares for all of Tordoff Motors Ltd and went on to build a new showroom next to the original garage. Alongside this Jack bought a Mercedes 600 bearing the registration plate 'JCT600' - Jack's initials and the car model which lead him to create the brand name that is now known today.

JCT600 has grown into one of the UK's largest and most highly respected motor retailers now representing 22 of the world's most iconic brands at over 50 locations throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and the North East.

There are around 2,000 colleagues working for JCT600, and among these are four generations of the Tordoff family as it remains to this day, a proud family business.
