Under the deal announced in July 2023, Hedin Automotive acquired all shares in Stephen James Group which operates five BMW and three MINI Centres located in Enfield, Woolwich, Bromley, Ruxley and a city retail outlet in Blackheath.

Stephen James Group offers automotive services, including new and used car sales, aftersales support, servicing, and repairs.
