A MECHANIC has set up his own garage after 17 years in the industry.
Alan Brownridge has opened AMB Autoservices in Barry’s Lane.
The moves sees Mr Brownridge fulfil an ambition to run his own business, which he has had throughout his career.
He said: “I have always worked for other people, so working for myself is something I have always wanted to do. My job is something I am enthused about and I wanted to put that passion in to a business.
“I just thought if I don’t do it now I never will.
“In the past I have worked for dealers and independent garages so I wanted to bring both those experiences together under one roof.”
Mr Brownridge said that since opening the garage he has seen business get busier and busier, and benefits from a good location in Barry’s Lane.
