Mitchell Charlesworth Helps Automotive Company Race Ahead


A prestige car servicing company is celebrating its tenth anniversary by targeting growth in the new race car season.

JMH Automotive was founded with just two staff by Jason Hughes and specialises in servicing and repairs of prestige marques such as Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini.

Mitchell Charlesworth have been helping Holmes Chapel-based JMH Automotive with their growth plans as they target new contracts for the forthcoming race season.

Mr Hughes, who has more than two decades of experience in the motor trade, said the company was now a family affair after his wife Julie recently joined the business and it had also taken on an apprentice, bringing total staff to nine.

"We are poised to sign new race deals for the 2014 season and are growing the team with our new apprentice so it is a busy time for the business," Mr Hughes said.

"We work with sports car owners to run cars in in both Ferrari and Porsche Championships throughout the UK and were Championship winners in the 2011 GT Cup, running a Porsche 997 as well as winning the 2006 Ferrari Classic championship running a Ferrari 328.

"We’re already looking ahead to 2014 and feel there are great opportunities to grow following the launch of our new garage, HC MOT & Service, next door to our specialist JMH premises in Holmes Chapel.

"We believe that our experience and expertise is a strong selling point which will support this expansion into the middle market. We want to offer a great service at a competitive price and have a loyal customer base who recognise our attention to detail."

Mitchell Charlesworth’s Associate Amanda Turpin said she is delighted to see JMH move from strength to strength.

"Mitchell Charlesworth has worked with JMH from its initial start up 10 years ago and seen it grow into the well-established, reputable company it is today. Bringing Jason’s wife Julie into the business really cements its reputation as a stable, family-owned venture.

"We recently advised the company on a range of suitable products, including cloud-based technology, when they wanted to switch to a new accounts system. We also provided start up advice and do their end of year accounts, tax returns and tax planning."
