The Pentraeth Group History

Pentraeth Group is a privately owned business, and has been since 1981. Something we’re very proud of.

Our Managing Director, Ken Jones was formally a teacher at Ysgol David Hughes before opening the Pentraeth Motor business as a result of his love of cars and motor sport. The Henffordd Garage site was quite different back in the early days as you can see.

Beginning with the Bodyshop, and then with the addition of the Mazda franchise shortly afterwards (followed by several others), the business steadily grew as a result of our talented team and the local community embracing our business as one they could rely on and trust for their motoring needs. Over the next twenty years, expansion continued when more manufacturer partners were added to the business, with more showrooms, along with state-of-the-art aftersales facilities.

Throughout the history of the business, motor sport - particularly rallying, has always been close to our hearts. It’s a tradition we continue today with the recent sponsorship and participation in the annual Glyn Memorial Rally. In fact, we love motoring so much, we simply had to take the opportunity to own the actual Kia cee’d BBC Top Gear Reasonably priced car, as driven by Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.

  • Le Jog John O’Groats to Lands End Rally December 1984
  • Mazda 323 Turbo in Finland 1987
  • Mitsubishi Lancer Glyn Memorial Rally 2013
  • Our Kia cee’d - THE Top Gear Reasonably Priced Car. On display at Pentraeth Kia.

Supporting the local community has always been a part of our business ethos. We’re grateful for the support we receive in return. One of our longest standing relationships is with Bangor City Football Club. As a major sponsor for over 20 years, we’re proud to be associated with such a passionate football team.
