Family, Past, Present and Future

The Cordwallis Group evolved in 1971 from H.W Thomas & Son who specialised in scrap metal, crane hire and transport. Owned and run by two brothers, the Cordwallis Group took the MAN Truck and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle franchise in 1980 at our head office in Maidenhead.

Our Journey

Over the years of 1990-1999, with business growing the Cordwallis Group expanded their current operation, and took on sites in Heathrow and Oxford. The Cordwallis Group proudly added another site in 2006 based in Reading giving the 4 branches they still proudly run to this day.

In 2012, The Cordwallis Group were awarded the Isuzu Truck franchise making all four sites Isuzu Sales, Service and Parts centres. To this day, The Cordwallis Group has continued to grow, with our latest venture being the opening of our new state-of-the-art site in Bicester.
