Our History

Ciceley Commercials Ltd was formed in May 1972 by Brian Morgan and his family, and operated from the original Ciceley Lane site in Blackburn, with a team consisting of just 18 employees and in 1975, Ciceley was appointed as the first Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle franchise for the Lancashire area.

Ciceley grew rapidly between 1996 and 2002 with the acquisition of premises in Bolton in 1996, Carlisle in 1998 and Dumfries in 2002. By 2003 the original Ciceley Lane facilities had become unsuitable for modern days needs, therefore a purpose-built facility was opened in December adjacent to the Junction 4 intersection of the M65 to accommodate another Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Franchise. The Ciceley Lane site now houses our Head Office, including a purpose-built PDI centre, which was opened in 2018.

Today, we have a team of over 200 well-trained individuals, dedicated to courteous and efficient customer service, helping to ensure that the growth enjoyed in the past continues for many, many years.
