    Addison Lee Plans UK Expansion

    Addison Lee has announced its acquisition of Tristar Worldwide, an executive vehicle company with operations in the US, Asia, and Europe. The move places Addison Lee – already Europe’s biggest private hire company – in a position to significantly expand it's executive car operations in the UK, and creates hundreds of new jobs for drivers.

    Alongside the acquisition, Addison Lee also announced plans to establish a full operation of 300 cars in Manchester, and says it is looking for drivers in other UK cities ahead of a nationwide expansion.

    Addison Lee’s CEO commented that the acquisition was “a major landmark for our business”, saying that “coming together with Tristar means our shared ethos and commitment to quality, service, and reliability can be expanded globally”.

    Tristar is currently the largest executive car hire service operating in the UK, and employs a fleet of around 450 chauffeurs. The acquisition will place the Tristar brand as the “executive” wing of Addison Lee’s services. Combined with Addison Lee’s executive fleet, the company will operate around 1000 premium hire vehicles worldwide, placing it as a market leader in the sector.

    The move means that Addison Lee-Tristar will now operate a fleet of around 5000 vehicles across Europe, making it the continent’s largest hire vehicle operator.
