From facilitating the first Ford dealership in the early 20th century through to its current, extensive roster of manufacturers, Hendy Group has grown immensely since its inception in 1859. Driving the business through some of its most turbulent times in recent memory, Chief Executive Paul Hendy, and his son and General Manager Will Hendy, have seen Hendy Group’s team exhibit incredible resilience to continue the family’s legacy.
