Rew Reed started Rew Auto Services Ltd in 2003 after buying out a previous garage. Since then the business has grown from a small workshop and one man operation, into a 4000 sq/ft workshop with full MOT facilities, 5 service ramps and tyre bay. With state of the art diagnostics and 4 wheel 3D suspension alignment, you are sure to get your vehicle fixed first time, every time.
Having moved to our current location in Lavant, in 2007 from Oving road in Chichester, it was obvious that more skilled hands were required. Matt Langton was the first to join Rew and as word spread Jamie Rose was taken on to cope with the work. Soon the work excalated and paperwork was mounting up!! Nick Demerey was hired as our front of house receptionist. Our latest addition is Paul Gray who beefs up the team to 5 strong.
After leaving school, Rew plunged head first into the world of work. He secured an apprenticeship at a local Rover dealer and spent five years learning his craft from some of the best technicians around. A move to Chichester District Council saw Rew becoming an MOT tester and HGV mechanic. An upwards step came after five years at the council, seeing Rew become a field engineer for a local HGV repairer. He covered the southern area working mainly on his own and having to deal with customers on a face to face level. This customer management experience was to become invaluable when setting up Rew Auto Services, and customer satisfaction is still Rews’ number one aim.
Matt Langton left school and became a qualified brick layer, but soon the lure of oil and grease overtook the cement dust and Matt took his first steps into the car industry. Tyres were calling Matt and he took a position as a tyre fitter at a local garage. Tiring of just fitting tyres he took a job at Carringdale Vauxhall and soon became an accomplished Vauxhall technician, gaining Vauxhall accreditation and Senior Technician status. Now a move to Rew Auto Services has seen Matt become an invaluable member of the team and his skills and knowledge are a considerable asset. Matt is Rews second in command and has recently undertaken the Bosch Diagnostic Technician programme and has passed with flying colours. Currently working towards his Bosch Master Technician award this will put Matt in the top 1% of technicians in the country!!!
Jamie Rose joined Rew Auto Services after spending two years working at a Skoda main dealer. Jamie started his career with an apprenticeship at Vauxhall and is a fully trained Vauxhall technician, he brings a depth of knowledge to our team with over fifteen years experience in the trade. Jamie has undertaken his MOT tester training since being with us and has passed several tests and courses. Jamie grew up in Bognor Regis, has a passion for Formula 1, enjoys playing football and gaming on the Xbox during his spare time.
Nick Demery joined the team having been a customer for over 10 years. He fancied a change and having come from a hotel/pub background, he was able to slot straight into the front of house role with ease. Nick is your first point of contact when you first enter reception and he will help you make your experience with us an easy pleasant one!! He’s a Happy Hammer (West Ham Supporter!!) and has a keen nose for good food and fine wine.
Paul Gray is the latest member of the team. We needed another pair of skilled hands and Paul fitted the Rew Auto remit perfectly!! Paul is conciencious, meticulous and methodical, exactly what’s required when it comes to repairing your car to our exacting standards!! He brings with him a wealth of knowledge that will be applied to fixing your vehicles. He loves F1 especially Ferrari!!
