What We Do:
Peninsula Partnership Ltd was founded in 2010 by brother’s in law Mark Edgecombe & Simon Bell. Currently we operate two businesses, Hyundai Torbay – Our Garage both situated in Torquay on the English Riviera.
We regard our business as a family business. We are family in the sense that we all support each other, but also in that we have a number of people in the team, who inspired some of their own relations to join us & become part of the Peninsula Partnership family.
This family bond helps to create a culture of caring for each other, caring for the company, and caring for our customers, we believe it works very well.
