Global Autocare (Global) is a leading provider of unique fleet solutions to large and small-scale businesses across the UK. Its services include daily rental, contract hire, fleet management, mobility solutions, maintenance and repair, movements and storage.

The business has consistently delivered organic growth by over 20 percent year-on-year since 2010.

Global also proudly sponsors elite sports teams across the region, including Leeds United Football Club, Leeds Rhinos Rugby Club and the Tour de Yorkshire – the major international cycle race held in Yorkshire annually.

Backing an ambitious growth strategy 

In December 2019 LDC made a significant investment in Leeds-based Global to support Founder Geoff Bloore and his management team.

LDC’s support and investment is helping the management team to accelerate its national growth plans, building on its strong relationships with some of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers.

In July 2020 Global agreed a new expanded four year partnership with Leeds Rhinos which will include the renaming of the rugby East Stand as the Global East Stand. Global have partnered with the Club for nearly a decade and are proud to continue this long-term partnership.

We chose to partner with LDC for private equity investment due to the firm’s heritage and success in the region, supporting Yorkshire-based businesses looking to scale nationally and beyond.”
