Take Me Group has made another acquisition, with Crown Cars of Wrexham joining the fast-expanding cab conglomerate.
The north Wales-based company was founded in 1983, and has been run from its base in Rhosllannerchrugog by Andy Roberts since 2016. It currently has a fleet of around 20 vehicles, and Roberts said: “Crown Cars is one of the leading providers of taxi hire in the Wrexham area. We have an extensive fleet of cars including both 6-seater and 8-seater vehicles, only using local drivers with the right knowledge.”
companies including ADT Taxis, VGT Taxis, TC Cars, Steve’s Taxis, Tower Cabs, Taxifirst, Westside Taxis, Intercity Private hire, Raffles, Eco Cars, Lee Cabs, 1AB and Star Cars and have signed up to be part of our growing group of taxis.
Andy Roberts took over Crown Cars in 2016, although the taxi business has been established since 1983. Andy told us “Crown Cars are one of the leading providers of taxi hire in the Wrexham area, we have an extensive fleet of cars including both 6 seater and 8 seater vehicles. With over 35 years in the taxi industry, customer service is key to our business, ensuring we offer a prompt and reliable service only using local drivers with the right knowledge.”
Recent media attention on Wrexham has benefited the company, Roberts said. This is thanks to Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds’ acquisition of the local football team and its subsequent return to the Football League, documented in the hit TV show ‘Welcome to Wrexham’.
Roberts said: “We can see especially on match days that there is more and more work for drivers, and now that the club has been promoted to the football league, we feel more visitors will start to come to the town, which will benefit us, the pubs, hotels and general economy of the town.”
Take Me Group CEO David Hunter said: “It is great that the Take Me team have worked so hard to add Crown Cars to the group. I know Andy and his team will bring new skills that we can all learn from, as well as our other Taxi business leaders sharing their best practices with him and the crew at Crown Cars.”
Hunter added: “This is how as a Group we get better with every single new company that joins us. Each brings its own unique skills, and together we become stronger.” He added that more acquisitions are in the pipeline. “Keep your eyes peeled for what may happen over the summer. 2023 is shaping up to be just as busy as last year.”
Take Me is in the process of rebranding all its subsidiaries under unified Take Me branding, a process that will continue throughout the year and will include Crown Cars.
