At S & B Motors we are proud to employ some of the industry's most enthusiastic and dedicated individuals. We are all passionate about what we do and take great pride in our work.
We currently have a team of nine and have a very low turnover of staff - our head technician Bruce has been with the company for over 40 years. Consequently many of our customers have come to know our technicians and will often have the same person maintaining their vehicle for the whole time they own it.

Bruce joined the team in 1977, he is our longest serving employee, racking up an impressive 40 years so far. Bruce did his training for the motor trade in the army and he has an "old school approach" - if he can't find a tool for a particular function he will make one. We have yet to find a problem car that he cannot fix.
Bruce has a keen interest in D.I.Y, he has even built his own loft conversion and will be found most weekends doing some sort of maintaining at his own or one of his daughters houses.
