Hickleys has announced Robin Huish as new Managing Director with Duncan Meikle moving to the position of Chairman. The company will celebrate 90 years in business in 2014.
Duncan Meikle commented: “Robin joined the company 40 years ago as an apprentice auto-electrician. He has progressed and was appointed to the board twelve years ago. Most recently he has been responsible for the Diagnostic, Garage Equipment and Technical Workshop Divisions.
Robin Huish said: “This is a very proud day for me. Hickleys is very different now from when I first started; back then we were a company serving local trade. Over the years we have grown to become one of the leading independent specialists in automotive diagnostic and garage equipment.”
Hickleys are exclusive distributors for leading brands like Advanced Diagnostics, Carman and Smokepro and UK distributors for key manufacturers including Bosch, Brainbee, Delphi and Texa.
Robin continued: “Our business is built on being able to offer ‘added value’, we have a team of highly skilled staff offering technical and product support and a team of engineers carrying out service, calibration and repair on all types of diagnostics and garage equipment.
“We employ a great team and it is due to them that each year we achieve growth, I am determined and confident that this will continue into the future.”
