We have also taken on a couple of new apprentices. I am pleased to say that the youngsters are doing well. Fitting in to our routine very well. Recently we have added another service to our portfolio. As a result, which is car engine re-mapping. After a slow start we are now doing well with it.

On the internet side. I have added a new tyre website for our customers to buy off us online, www.pellontyres.co.uk. This is now doing very well and we have many accreditation’s from satisfied customers.

Tyre maintenance

History

Pellon Auto Centre was originally known as Pellon Service Station

Of course selling petrol and oil products for cars and vans. Consequently,the garage owners later started to sell cheap tyres and exhausts. At this time the garage was owned by the Martin family.

Eric Roberts, now owner of Pellon-Autocentre. Sold the Martins Michelin tyres and later Goodyear tyres. Mr Martin had a reputation as been the cheapest tyre garage around the Halifax UK area.

Eventually the original owners sadly passed away.Subsequently,the garage was taken over by his son Terry. Terry was eventually overwhelmed by strong competition. Especially, from all the nationally-owned tyre companies. So, deciding to sell his garage business.

The petrol side of the business closed first. The buildings was sold to ACE security. of course who are still trading today.

Tyre business sold off

Tyres were the next to go. This part of the garage was bought by a Mr Stuart Cunliffe. Who has since sadly passed away. Stuart rented part of the building to Colin Swiffen.

Colin was an exhaust fitter. Renting two bays from Stuart Cunliffe to fit his exhausts. Consequently, the lower half of the buildings were sold to Stuart and Bob. To be used as an accident repair centre, called Trim craft.

A few years went by. Eric Roberts was at his first garage business. Hence, called Kut-Kost tyres in Birstall West Yorkshire and once again things were pretty steady. Eric and his business partner Peter Winfield. Had expanded to three tyre depots and things were going well. This was until Eric was offered a large sum of money.Subsequently, by Shell Oil for the business.

After a great deal of thought. So, Eric and Peter decided to sell out and go their separate ways. Eric became bored at doing nothing at home.Soon began to look at other businesses. As a result, he purchased Pellon Tyres. Also buying out Colin Swiffen. Who at that time was suffering from ill health.

Trimcraft the next target for Eric

After a few more years passed by. Bob and Stuart of Trim craft decided they needed larger premises. Buying new premises at Hanson Lane in Halifax. With the help of Yorkshire bank. Then Eric bought the attached bays. Gradually expanding his garage business.

With a few new office and reception extensions. Eric and Pellon Autocentre are where they are now. Together with internet trading are now reaching new levels and all the goals that they can achieve.

All this took place between 1998 up to now, a fantastic achievement, a Great garage.
