About Us

Nigel Ainge began his career in the motor trade when he became an apprentice at Cutlers of Streetly, the main Austin Agent in the area, where he remained until he had completed his training. However he already had ambitions of running his own business and so in 1962 Hillwood Auto Engineering was established by Nigel, working from his home in Hillwood Road, Sutton Coldfield, repairing friends and colleagues' vehicles.

Over the next few years Hillwood Auto grew in size and reputation and in 1968 became part of the Police Recovery Scheme in the area, which in turn led to the business expanding into accident repairs

In 1980 Nigel went into partnership in a second business running a fleet of commercial vehicles with Hillwood Auto taking over the repair and maintenance of those vehicles. This in turn led to the development of the commercial vehicle workshop to run alongside the car repair business.

By 1988 the business had outgrown the site at Hillwood Road and a new site was purchased at Blake Street in Four Oaks to accommodate the commercial vehicle repairs and the recovery whilst the car repairs remained at the original site. The business operated from these two sites until 1998 when the opportunity arose to purchase our present site in Tamworth. This allowed all the business activities to be brought under one roof on a 1.5 acre site and an opportunity to develop the MOT test centre.

By 2002 the centre was established, testing all types of vehicles for both local and national customers.

Technology now plays a large part in the repair of vehicles and the business is still expanding in this area, with diagnostic equipment for both car and commercial vehicles
