Founder / Director

Automotive service/repair and commercial fleet maintenance.

Automotive engineering took me through various areas of the industry from Dealerships, Motor Sport, Utility fleets, Construction plant, Tanker fleet, Hovercraft. Along the way as an employee in a utility company I identified a need for maintenance out of normal hours and I set up a mobile business providing that service. After hours fleet maintenance from the back of a van was the seed that grew into a profitable business occupying premises in Cheshire and Mereyside.
