We are a local company that serves the local community. Started in 1999 by local man, Steve Burrows, the company has grown from 1 site in Rotherham to 9 dealerships and 3 franchises covering Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
Family and community play a major part in the Burrows workplace. Not only with the Burrows family members themselves but also with the many employees we have working alongside their partners and children. As a very people focused company, the relationship between our customers, our people and our manufacturers continues to be the mainstay of the culture of our company.
Working alongside the community and offering a helping hand along the way has become what Burrows is about. Whether sponsoring football kits for local groups or participating in the Macmillan Coffee Morning or Christmas Jumper Day, all of our teams join in.
