25 years for any company to still be in business is quite something these days let alone a lad at the age of 20 starting out and still running it.
This is exactly what Rob Moss did when he formed Chevronics in 1992. Back then the business was based on selling used Citroen parts from a lockup garage.
The business moved into its new workshop in Arlesey in 1998 where it stayed until Rob rebuilt his factory in Hitchin and moved the company over in February 2009.
Moving onto 2017 , Chevronic Centre LTD is still looking after local Citroen and Peugeot folk and also is world renowned for its mass of knowledge and huge stock levels of classic citroen parts.
It remanufactures parts for classic Citroen cars which get exported around the world , the company sells in bulk to other specialist firms mainly in Europe and Japan.
The open day had a programme of events running , spectators could see a windscreen being removed and refitted. An engine being run on a bench. There was a speech talking about vehicle restoration , a jazz band for visitors to relax and enjoy.
Rob also set up a speed test where he and one of his technicians raced each other to remove a vehicle suspension arm and refit it. The crowds cheered and the finish was very close but Klaus won the day. Rob said he obviously taught him well!
Visitors came from France , Holland , Ireland and Bulgaria. Rob Moss Director of Chevronics was touched at the high level of visitors who came to the event.
“Citroen owners are a very passionate bunch of folk and all left us saying what an amazing day they had”
