Offering Bracknell motorists a trustworthy, friendly and value for money garage alternative
(PRWEB UK) 10 May 2012
The Mayor of Bracknell, Councillor Gill Birch, took time out of her busy schedule on Friday morning (6th April) to officially open a new business in the town.
The Mayor was invited to open the new Halfords Autocentres by centre manager David Hills, who joined Cllr Birch to cut the ceremonial ribbon and declare the brand new garage open.
Halfords Autocentres is the UK’s leading independent car servicing ( http://www.halfordsautocentres.com/car-servicing/), repair, tyre (http://www.halfordsautocentres.com/tyres/) and MOT network (http://www.halfordsautocentres.com/MOT/).
David Hills comments: “The Halfords Autocentre on Western Road is our first garage to open in Bracknell. We have a terrific opportunity here to build up the business, offering Bracknell motorists a trustworthy, friendly and value for money alternative.”
Cllr Mrs Birch, The Mayor of Bracknell Town, commented: “It was an honour to open the new Halfords Autocentre on Friday. It’s wonderful to see a business expanding and the facilities at the garage are second to none. I enjoyed talking to the technicians; they’re a really enthusiastic and friendly bunch, eager to do an excellent job for the people of Bracknell. I was really pleased to learn about the firm’s apprentice opportunities for young local people, as it gives them a chance to learn and develop new skills straight from school. It was delightful to meet an apprentice who lives in Bracknell and hear how much he loves working for Halfords. I wish them every luck with their new business.”
In addition to creating employment in the town, a six-figure sum has been invested in acquiring, equipping and staffing the Autocentre and the new business is set to spend a further £15,000 each month with local suppliers.
David Hills continues: “The investment gives us a fresh, purpose built space, equipped with the very latest technology and tools that enables us to service all makes and models of cars, old and new. It puts us in the very best position to meet the demand created by Bracknell motorists looking for a better deal. We’re working hard to lower the cost of motoring by providing main dealer quality at more affordable prices, something that is resonating strongly in these tough times.”
