Dear Customer,

After over forty years in business, it is with deep regret that we announce that we have decided to close down the business, entirely due to the imminent retirement of Richard Setchfield.

This means that:

  • We will continue to finish any Workshop jobs that are currently being worked on but unfortunately, we cannot take on any new workshop jobs;
  • Any Workshop job that has been booked in but not started, we will not be able to facilitate;
  • You will be able to collect any parts that have been previously ordered by our Parts Team, however we will not be placing any future non-stock customer specific orders;
  • For a period, you will be able to visit our Parts showroom and buy items off the shelf;
  • Any machinery and equipment currently in stock that has been sold and paid for will be delivered as planned; and
  • Details of the sale for our remaining stock machinery and equipment will be advertised in due course.

We would like to confirm that the company is solvent and the staff will be supported during this difficult time.

It is not a decision we have taken lightly. We would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support over the years.
