About the employer

Our mission is to deliver the best Franchise Dealer experience within our local areas of influence through great customer service, continuous improvement and a performance culture, in turn being a great business to be a part of for a sustainable future. Long before the advent of the motor car the original Thomas Startin set up his business as a coach builder in 1840. Thomas Startin Jnr Ltd was owned by the Startin family up until 1987 when the Directors who had been with the company since 1949 organised the purchase from the last living member of the Startin family. The acquisition took place to ensure the future continuity of this long-established business which now trades as Startin Group of Companies.
