The RRG Group, who will feature across the front of Latics’ first-team shirts from the 2023/24 season, are among the largest car dealer groups in the north.

If you are looking for a new or used car, the RRG Group provides a wide selection of quality vehicles to suit a range of requirements.

With its Peugeot dealership situated off Manchester Road in Oldham and a Toyota centre within four miles of Boundary Park on Edinburgh Way, Rochdale, the group has a total of 21 centres across Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Yorkshire.

Over the last 50 years the RRG Group has seen many developments, acquisitions, sales, expansions, building developments - all of which have helped to position the group as a successful diverse business. 

Their centres sell a wide range of vehicles, including new and used Toyota, Lexus, Mazda, Peugeot, Škoda, Nissan, Kia and MG models.

In 1971, RRG acquired the Toyota franchise, leading to the operation of 11 centres. 

The Toyota Motor Corporation was founded in the 1930s by Kiichiro Toyoda, son of Toyota Industries founder, Sakichi Toyoda. 

Toyota moved into the motor industry when Kiichiro was invited to England by the Platt Brothers, who owned and operated a host of mills in Oldham.

The brothers were based out of Booth House on Featherstall Road, about half a mile away from Latics’ birthplace, the Featherstall and Junction Inn. 

Following Kiichiro's visit, the Platt Brothers bought the patent for the Toyoda Model G Loom, which allowed a single worker to operate up to 30 machines, significantly increasing productivity. 

Having generated £100,000 from the sale of the patent, Kiichiro used the money to start the Toyota Motor Corporation, which has now produced over 200 million vehicles. 

Toyota is now a pioneer in the use of hydrogen as a plentiful source of renewable energy that can be produced and used without creating harmful emissions.

As a club, we will be working with RRG throughout the season to highlight life with an EV vehicle, promote the use of hybrid technology and focus on future mobility solutions and alternative powertrains.
