About Us

From our family to yours for over 100 years.

The origins of our company date back to the late 1800's when Gilbert Hutchings opened his first butcher shop in Ton Pentre in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales. As Gilbert saw a need for transporting meat through the Valleys he began taking an interest in vehicles.

Fast forward to more than 100 years and four generations later, the company has grown and evolved its sole product focus from butchery to motor vehicles. We are proud to still be serving the wider community of South Wales from our dealerships in Treforest, Bridgend and Swansea.

We are passionate about being a part of the local community and feel strongly about providing an outstanding level of customer service by embodying the mission statement we have held up for over a century:

"We'll welcome our staff and customers into our family and using the knowledge and skills that we've acquired over more than a hundred years to provide an exceptional customer experience, be a great place to work and provide memorable, high-quality, cost effective services"

Thanks to our loyal customers we have continued to thrive and grow amongst the motor traders in South Wales. Over the years, we have been privileged to receive many public, industry, and franchise awards covering various different elements of our business. These have been in recognition of individual, team and whole company achievements whilst always striving to provide top quality, value-for-money products and services.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and we look forward to the prospect and pleasure of doing business with you in the very near future.
