Thriving Larbert-based garage, Ewan Lawson Motors changes name to Lawson Autotech as its powering forwards with expansion plans including significant investment in new technology and equipment as it eyes its fifth decade in business.
Ewan first started this business in 1983 and now that it’s entering its 40th year, he’s delighted with how much he and his son Barry have grown it. Having taken on new technicians and new front of house staff, increased the size of the garage and added an additional MOT and workshop space in recent years, the garage is now investing in cutting-edge new equipment and team training to continue providing the highest level of service and repair to local motorists.
Barry, who first started working in the industry at 16 years old, gained his qualifications from Ford in Stirling, before joining the family garage at 21. Today, he is well renowned in the automotive industry, and has presented at a number of training conferences around the globe. He also writes for an automotive magazine, where he shares his knowledge about the industry and the latest developments in car manufacturing and repair.
The garage itself is part of the nationwide network of DPF Doctor Network and is an authorised retailer for Avon Tuning.
For Barry, being part of the recent growth and seeing all of the investment and expansion the pair have poured into the business coming to life is incredibly gratifying. He said, “My father has spent the last 40 years building this business into what it is today and is well known around Larbert. I’m beyond grateful to have the opportunity to be able to work alongside him and very excited with what this next chapter means. We have worked hard to invest in the business and keep up with the changing technology.
Barry adds, “With the rise in popularity of electric cars, the automotive industry has changed dramatically over the past decade. Therefore, we’re excited to have brought in some new equipment and have undertaken training on new techniques so that as a business, we can make sure we’re able to continue to serve the local area.”
To reflect the new technology and expansion of services, the garage will now change its name to Lawson AutoTech but will continue to deliver a cutting edge service to customers in and around Larbert.
