Halfords Group plc is the UK’s leading retailer of automotive, leisure and cycling products and through Nationwide Autocentres also the UK’s leading independent car servicing and repair operator. Headquartered in Redditch, Worcestershire, Halfords has 469 stores across the UK and Republic of Ireland, making it one of the largest non-food retailers in the country.

Earlier this year Pinsent Masons advised Halfords on the acquisition of Nationwide Autocentres, the UK's leading independent car servicing and repair operator. This re-financing is the latest in a string of £100m plus transactions we have advised on in the investment grade space over the course of the last 18 months."
