bike and run.
Alexander Duncan - Mechanic and MOT
Started 25th November 2002 - Sandy knows everything
there is to know about VW / Audi group cars. He has
even visited the VW factory in Germany twice. Just one reason why we have many repeat cutomers of this brand.

include welding. Larry has his own fishing boat and
can often be seen in one of his several Ford Capris.
Whatever the weather, even in deep snow, Larry
arrives at work on time in his maroon Capri.
Dominik Wardowski - Mechanic
Started 16th September 2008 - When Dominik started
he couldn’t speak any English but had great skills
as a mechanic. He is now known as ‘Turbo Dom’ as he
is such a fast and efficient worker. We have taught
him a unique version of English! We are hoping that
he never wants to go back to Poland.
Alistair Aitken - Workshop Manager and
Started 07th March 2011 - Ali started with a wealth
of experience as a mechanic, after working for 17
years at his previous employers we finally managed
to persuade him to join Firstdrive. He has made
Paul’s job a lot easier and the workshop runs much
more smoothly with two people.
Likes to party in her spare time. She is always in a good mood, even working here!
