Woodham Mortimer, the race preparation and classic car restoration specialist, has enjoyed a successful 2019, 12 months on from establishing the new brand.
The company has cemented its position as one of Europe’s leading restoration, race preparation and event support businesses and has supported the classic car industry with significant sponsorship deals with two of Europe’s most prestigious events – the Goodwood Revival and the Mille Miglia.
Woodham Mortimer established itself as the exclusive classic car partner to the Goodwood Revival in 2019 and has committed to the same partnership for 2020. Similarly, the company announced that it was the 2019 Restoration Global Partner to the Mille Miglia, and successfully ran a team of ten cars in the legendary Italian event this year – the biggest single team entry to take part. Its position as the Restoration Global Partner for the 2020 and 2021 Mille Miglia has now been confirmed and the company is aiming to support 10 cars in both events.
As part of the ongoing investment in the business, the company is delighted to announce that it is building new premises in Chelmsford, Essex.
Woodham Mortimer is creating a state-of-the-art headquarters from which the company can continue to expand its world-leading classic car services. The new site will feature improved restoration facilities that will again include a body shop, paint shop, trim shop, engine build facilities, race centre and general servicing workshop.
As a one-stop-shop for restoration work across multiple marques, its comprehensive scope of expertise gives Woodham Mortimer the ability to control restorations throughout the entire process, ensuring a degree of quality control and project management that is rare within the industry.
Jean-Marc Gales, Chairman and CEO at Woodham Mortimer, said: “We are extremely excited to renew our partnerships and invest in the industry that we all love. It is important to build on the success we have enjoyed since Woodham Mortimer launched in late 2018, so our expansion and investment in our facilities and activities in 2020 is fundamental. It’s obviously very exciting to be moving onto the next chapter and continue our growth.”
