Twenty years down the line well-known businessman Michael McNaughton, with the assistance of two partners, purchased Kelly Volkswagen, which developed as the highly successful Market Square Volkswagen.

The dealership was born from humble beginnings and began trading on 1st June 1996 with three new cars in stock, one demo, one salesperson and two used cars.

Today Market Square Volkswagen sells over 80 new and Mastercars a month, services around 40 cars a day and employs just over 90 staff.

In 2012 the Kelston Motor Group invested substantially in the Uitenhage area by developing a new state of the art dealership and relocated the branch from the centre of town to Algoa Road, adjacent to the iconic Volks- wagen of South Africa Uitenhage plant.

In celebrating 20 years, Market Square Volkswagen with Tracy Weise as the dealer principal, is delighted to share that they have three staff that have celebrated this exceptional milestone with them namely Clive Oosthuizen, Louis du Plessis and Wilson Dwane.
