Our History

The eldest and youngest brothers of the 11 Powell children established Powells Garage in 1953. After 35 years, the oldest brother left leaving the youngest in charge.

During this time, his son Ken was busy learning the skills necessary to join the family business and soon became an integral part of the team. His wife Heather, who now helps Powells run like clockwork, closely followed, joining the team in 1990.

Recently, the third generation of the Powell family has come on board, with Ken and Heathers two sons Jon and Tom joining the expanding team.

Powells Garage have successfully undertaken an ambitious expansion and modernisation programme over recent years, in order to offer customers the most comprehensive and highest quality service possible. This has resulted in the business outgrowing it’s original site and relocating to larger state of the art premises at Barncoose, approximately half a mile from the original site.
