About the Bowker Motor Group

In our state-of-the-art Centres across Lancashire, Bowker Motor Group are proud to represent some of world’s most prestigious and iconic car and motorcycle manufacturers.

Bowker was established in 1919 when William Bowker used his war gratuity to buy the first vehicle. He began making local deliveries in Lancashire earning a reputation for a pioneering spirit and an innovative approach to industry’s needs. It wasn’t long before he’d assembled one of the largest fleets in the area.

The Company diversified its activities in 1984 with the acquisition of Clock Garage in Accrington – the BMW retailer for East Lancashire. Today the franchise portfolio includes BMW, MINI, BMW Motorrad, Harley-Davidson and Porsche, with Centres in Preston and Blackburn.

Bowker Ribble Valley, based on the A59 at Osbaldeston, specialises in retailing prestige and sports cars. With a fully equipped workshop and factory trained ATA Technicians, they provide all makes car servicing and repairs including MOT and tyre fitting.

At Bowker Motor Group, your Bowker Experience is as tailor made for you as the vehicle you own, whether you are choosing a new vehicle for personal or business use.

We conduct business with integrity and enthusiasm strongly influenced by the philosophies of what is a very old and well established family business. At Bowker, family means much more than a collection of trusted, successful businesses. It’s about the people who work in them.

We are proud of our exceptional customer service which can only be consistently delivered by attracting, motivating, training and retaining the very best team members.
