A garage in Devon is celebrating its most profitable period of trading since the current owners took charge in May 2022.

Cully Tyres & Autocare of Cullompton says the success is thanks to being part of the First Stop network and investing £100,000 on new equipment and a garage refurbishment.

The business has also recruited a 17-year-old apprentice from Exeter College.

Co-owner Gary Thomson told Devon Live: “We are extremely proud to be part of the Cullompton community and we can’t thank our customers enough for coming back to us again and again and for placing their trust in us.

“We have always been blessed by long-term relationships with our long-standing customer base and we have been able to supplement this with a new generation of motorists who also value the service we provide.”

Speaking about the decision to join the First Stop network, co-owner Scott Morgan added: “Becoming a First Stop member has been a shrewd decision, as we are now backed by a national network, which helps us operate more efficiently.”

First Stop, which is backed by Bridgestone Tyres, has around 2,000 service centres in 25 countries across Europe. It wants to establish 220 outlets in the UK by the end of this year.

First Stop’s retail network manager Mark Widdows concluded: “We’re so happy to be able to work with the Cully Tyres team and even happier to hear of its upturn in business fortunes.

“We identified the centre as one we’d love to work with, precisely because Gary, Scott and the team share our same values.”
