Founded in 1912 by Wallace Cunningham and Arnold Crowe the Wallace Arnold coaching business steadily grew until in 1926 the company was taken over by Robert Barr. Under the control of the Barr family the company continued to build its reputation for quality service. In the mid 1950's with the increase in private motoring the company began to diversify making use of its existing facilities to develop commercial dealerships including among others Vauxhall, Bedford and Scammell. The last change in ownership came in 1997 when the company was sold to a management buy-out. The Wallace Arnold name grew to become recognised around the world for its quality holiday and leisure activities until taken over by Shearings.
