About the employer
Established in the early 1960's, Thomas Jeffery Vickers was the founder member of T J Vickers and Sons car dealers covering the Shrewsbury, Telford and Shropshire area, operating from Don Service Station, Telford.
Soon after younger son Steve joined the fold with elder son Colin completing the partnership in June 1965. Having gained an excellent reputation in their first 17 years of business, Colin and Steve had the chance to purchase Salopian Motors on Trench Road.
They did so and then took on the Fiat franchise. At the same time Colin's son Ian also joined the company, since then the business has gone from strength to strength expanding into Shrewsbury with our Suzuki dealership.
In 2005, to compliment the Telford operation, T J Vickers Shrewsbury moved to the town's Battlefield Enterprise Park offering both Suzuki and Fiat products. 2010 saw the opening of their second Suzuki site on Trench Road, Telford, further enhancing our commitment to both brands throughout Shropshire.
Most recently TJ Vickers Suzuki and Fiat franchises have now been joined by Jeep and Alfa Romeo offering even more choice for customers. Current Co Directors Ian Vickers and Matthew Cole continue the family tradition into the 21st century with the support of a professional and vastly experienced team, backed up by superb manufacturers, creating innovative products.
For us to remain one of the top car dealers for the Shrewsbury, Telford and Shropshire area our aim is to continue to provide you with a vehicle that is good value for money and gives many years of reliable motoring with the hassle free back up you would expect when purchasing from a franchised main dealer.
