Cirencester-based classic car restoration company, Cotswold Classic Car Restorations Limited has bought specialist engineering firm South Cerney Engineering.
The merger means that Cotswold Classic Car Restorations has become one of the few companies in the UK that can offer a full end to end restoration process for classic vehicles “in house”.
The services that can be offered are high class bodywork, body fabrication, engineering builds, full interior trim and electrical work. This means that customers only have to deal with one organisation and their car will not have to leave the companies site(s) during restoration. All SCE’s current staff have transferred with the business sale including Jeff Hester who has been with the company for 47 years.
CCCR owner, Jonathan Wills, said “This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for both companies to join forces, move forward and really was the missing piece of the jigsaw for us in being able to provide a full “in house” restoration service . We are delighted to now be able to enjoy the benefits of the 60 years or so of engineering experience that SCE’s pedigree brings. We would like to reassure the existing customers of South Cerney Engineering that all its services are still available and there are plans to invest further in people and equipment as we bring together and develop the services offered by both companies”.
