About Us

Our family owned business was first established in 1875 by George Thurlow as an oil merchant and engineer. Read our full history here.

From these humble beginnings, the company has grown considerably with Thurlow Nunn becoming one of the largest Vauxhall retailers in the UK. Thurlow Nunn operates from 13 Vauxhall dealerships, and an Aftersales Centre, in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.

The Thurlow Nunn Group of Companies collectively employs more than 700 people, with an annual turnover in excess of £250 million and operates from a total of 22 sites.

We are very proud of our heritage and despite our growth we are still very much a family business, with the fifth generation of the Thurlow family involved in the company today. We strive to retain the ‘family feel’ of our organisation in today’s fast moving world and are mission statement defines that:

“We are a family owned business that cares about our people, who care about our customers; instore and online. We help families and local businesses by providing the best possible experience, selection, quality and value when it comes to buying or maintaining cars or vans.”

The respect generated by the Thurlow Nunn name and the backing of older parts of the business have helped the automotive retail and aftersales arm achieve its pre-eminent position in the region. Nevertheless, the efficiency, fair dealing and friendly attitude of our staff have been key to our on-going success.

We strive through applying our family values of Professional, Trust, Respect, Caring and Together to be the organisation of choice for our people, our customers and our stakeholders.

Our community involvement initiatives with various charities, and sponsorship of the Eastern Counties Football League, ensure that we are fondly regarded throughout our local counties.

We are proud to support our local communities with various sponsorship programmes and if you want us to get involved with something why not contact your nearest branch today? You can find your nearest branch here.
