KGC Engineering, 'mobile heritage transport restorers', was formed in 2011, and has carried out restoration work on classic cars such as Morris Minors, Triumphs and MGs.
In 2013 the company was awarded Theo Paphitis' Small Business Sunday award; a scheme run through social media site Twitter.
KGC Engineering mainly focuses on the restoration of classic cars turning them from barn finds to show winners. Within our portfolio we include several Morris Minor’s, a Triumph TR3A and a Rover P6, in addition to this we also provide servicing and training days on various restoration topics. Other projects that KGC Engineering has tackled include a 1930’s Hercules Bicycle.
Restoration takes a long time and costs a lot of money to have a proper job undertaken, we have seen so many poor quality, quick repairs done to classic cars which have allowed the original problem to get worse. This is something that we don’t do, we cut out the rot back to good material and fit in new material that is made to fit, this takes a bit more time, but looks better and keeps the car looking as it should do.
Since the Win KGC Engineering has had more interest from a wider audience and is now regularly picking up projects from far and wide, without the win, and the success of #SBS there is no way we would have a 6 month waiting list for new big projects and a 2 month waiting list for smaller jobs.
