I got interested in cars when I was a kid, my Dad used to let me help him with repairs and it just grew from there. When I left school I got an apprenticeship and went to college and achieved my City and Guilds in motor vehicles service and repair. I’ve worked in the automotive industry my entire life and started Tyres Rims & Trims in 2006.
I’ve enjoyed it immensely, I particularly enjoy giving clients a valuable service and building relationships. It means a lot to me that we have a good reputation locally. I think clients should be treated with respect and I enjoy providing a quality service.
I want to maintain the standards at TRT, but we also want to develop our business and introduced Alloy Refurbishment in May last year, we have recently taken on an apprentice and we will be launching our new Hydro Dipping service this summer.
I enjoy being an employer and feel like I’m contributing to the town of Whitburn.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and playing golf, I’ve got a handicap of 24 which I’m always trying to get down!
