Things to consider
About the employer
A leading Vauxhall retailer in a customer service/ automotive retail environment.
Aston was established by Brian Kay and two of his then business partners. In 1989 the existing site was purchased and the facilities that exist today were purpose built.
The business opened with just 11 staff members, 3 of whom are still with the company today.
The Aston team today produces a turnover of over £13,000,000 per annum and there are just 23 employees across all departments. The facilities we offer are continually improving and, as the longest established franchised dealer in the area, we are rightfully proud of our ability to satisfy the needs of our many loyal customers in an ever changing world.
Brian drives the business forward, together with a team of committed and highly skilled members of staff. We all work closely together to ensure that excellent customer service is delivered consistently across the business.
