We pride ourselves on being able to provide a familiar feel here, for both the new and established customer.

We are very active within our area, being involved in a number of organisations via various sponsorships and support.  We have established a scholarship and support programme with the local College, and supplying a signwritten pool car for their use, and have just undertaken a partnership with the innovative North Wales-based Adventure company, Zipworld , where our products gain massive exposure. We have a strong and historic reputation in our local area, which is crucial in today’s business environment. Building on this, we invest a significant resource in social media, which is essential in today’s changing market.
