Arnold Clark Automobiles is now Scotland's largest car dealership, with over 145 new and used car dealerships spread throughout Great Britain.

The company sells over 200,000 cars per year, employs 7,500 people, and has an annual turnover of over £2.2 billion.

Clark started buying and selling other cars, and opened his first showroom in 1954 in Glasgow's Park Road. After gaining his first retail franchise for Morris in 1959, expansion continued with the purchase of existing sites and rivals in and around the Glasgow area.
