A family company, Hilliers Complete Workshop Services, was founded by Phil Hillier, a qualified Electro Mechanical Engineer in 1988 as “Hillier – Garage Equipment Services”.
Phil started the business as a single engineer assisting car garages in and around Bristol with their equipment maintenance. In under a year the business had grown to require a second engineer, Phil requested the assistance of his brother Dave Hillier, also a qualified engineer to come into the business and run it as an equal partnership. The pair grew the business further, widening their service area and scope to include the south and southwest of England and Wales. This expansion caught the attention of Castrol Oils who asked Hilliers Garage Equipment as we were known by this time, to become the company’s main equipment partner in the south of England and Wales, a partnership that still stands today. The business has continued to grow to be one of the leading workshop equipment suppliers, installers, and maintainers in the UK.
In August 2021 Phil and Dave Hillier retired as directors from the company, handing over the business to Dave’s son David Hillier Jnr and his business partner Chris Watts to take the company forward as Managing Director and Service Director respectively. Re-branding the business to its current namesake “Hilliers Complete Workshop Services” to give customers new and old the confidence that “Hilliers” will continue to support them and allow them to concentrate on their core business of selling and repairing vehicles.
Now with 8 full time engineers covering the service area, looking after the needs of over 1200 workshop premises for our customers and trade partners we have become the leading workshop services company in the south of the UK. We truly offer the Complete Workshop Service, its just what we do!
