The founder of this Shropshire-based car dealership company, William ‘Bill’ Lewis, began working in the motor industry aged 21. In 1945, he set up his own body shop. His business quickly grew and he quickly got a reputation for high-quality workmanship. When in 1956 he decided to begin selling cars to the public his new business was an almost instant success. Clients who had previously had their vehicles repaired by him trusted him and bought their new cars from him.
