Walter Bristo, started the Bristo's company as a horse and carriage taxi firm in Ipswich around 1910. It began trading in motor vehicles in 1932 with the Vauxhall/Bedford agency. Its three sites, just a mile from the town centre, incorporate the most modern showrooms and workshops in the area.
Bristo's has expanded significantly to welcome the prestigious Renault franchise and more recently ŠKODA and Dacia. As of August 2015, Bristo’s is now part of Marriott Motor Group.
Marriott Motor Group is a family run Group and is owned and run by the Barnard family.
Paul Barnard, Managing Director of Marriott Motor Group commented, “Bristo’s is an excellent addition to the Marriott family, as it holds the same core values of providing a traditional and valued personal service.”
