Formed in 1975 by Michael and Stephen Nunn, Nunns of Grimsby Ltd. started as a used car sales outlet on the corner of Rendel Street and Armstrong Street in Grimsby.
A new car franchise, FSO, was added to the business in 1977. A move to bigger premises on the corner of Rendel Street and Corporation Road in 1980, was followed by the addition of the Colt franchise (now known as Mitsubishi). As a Mitsubishi dealer, Nunns is one of this country’s longest serving dealerships. Further developments followed and various franchises were operated by the Company, including BMW, Mazda, Yugo, Daihatsu, Hyundai, Kia and Rocsta from premises in Laceby, Scartho and Louth.
The Company consolidated its activities in 1999 with the sale of the BMW franchise and concentrated on the Mazda and Mitsubishi franchises at their purpose built premises on Hewitts Avenue. In 2001, Michael Nunn retired as a Director of the Company and the business is now headed up by Stephen Nunn & Jeremy Griffiths.
Recent years have seen a significant growth in the new car volume which has served to grow the customer base and ensure a good future for the Company and its employees.
Nunns of Grimsby continues as a family run business, a good number of the current employees having remained with the Company for many years.
