Devon-based independent A&K Gifford has become the 500th garage to sign up to the Bosch Car Service network.

Anthony Gifford, senior partner and founder of the 40-year-old workshop, said: “I’m surprised and pleased to learn we are the 500th member.

“Bosch is a household name that people recognise and relate to quality, and that is one of the reasons that we wanted to join the network.

“Being part of the Bosch Car Service network will now enable us to take our business to the next level.

“We’ve been around for a long time and have built a strong and successful company, but we wanted to give ourselves access to all the latest training courses and diagnostic equipment that Bosch Car Service offers.”

The BCS milestone has been reached in Bosch’s 125th year of trading.

When the garage scheme was piloted in 2003 it had just six members in the South East, Yorkshire and Scotland. It now has national coverage and is approved by the Office of Fair Trading.
