We pride ourselves in professionalism, and are proud of our story!
We are fully trained, licenced, and insured to work on all aspects of vehicle A/C systems, R12, R134a, HFO-1234yf, including Electric Vehicles (EV) and Hybrid Vehicles.
Whether you have a family run-around, or a £1m Formula GT Racecar (yes we do these too!) and everything in-between, including farmers tractors, HGV’s and large Plant Machinery we do it all!
We were formed in 2004, as a family business intending to provide a Specialist Service into the Motor Trade and Motorsport industry.
You will see our sign-written Smart Cars that we originally used to advertise and travel to our customers garages in our photo gallery.
In 2007, we realised that there was a significant market for a ‘Mobile Service’ to visit our retail customers both at home, and their place of work, whilst still servicing our Trade and Motorsport clients.
We invested significantly in custom built ‘Mobile Workshops’ enabling us to carry out almost every aspect of our specialised trade on site, from our base in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire.
A word from the founder…
“We soon realised that within two years of being open, we had outgrown our previous workshop at Burton Latimer, and after a lot of time looking for a new location, found our new workshop which enabled us to double in size to 5 vehicle bays, and much better customer facilities. In 2017 we again doubled our capacity to give us 11 vehicle Bays, and we are very excited about our future…….
In March 2015, we were voted into the Top 5 Independent Workshops in the country by our customers, then in 2017 winning in the National Workshop Awards, and then in 2018 collecting Garage of the Year for Technology Innovation. We are very humbled, but never lose sight of becoming the best in the business! We will look after every car as if it was a £1m Racecar, and look forward to the opportunity of looking after yours.”
In 2013, bucking the poor economic trend, we invested into the opening of our new workshop and service centre in Burton Latimer within the heart of Northamptonshire.
This was officially opened on the 2nd April 2013 by the Rt. Hon. Philip Hollobone MP.
In May 2015, we again made a significant investment opening a new Service Centre at Cunliffe Drive, in the heart of Kettering. These premises are 1 mile from the Town Centre, and 5 mins drive from the A14. Our new Premises offer 5 servicing bays, as well as the very latest in car servicing technologies. You can wait in our Air-Conditioned Customer Waiting Room, have a Costa Coffee, and use our free Wi-Fi while we look after your car.
In 2017 we opened our second unit, and Sister Business under a different brand, Bee Cool Performance & Motorsport specialising in servicing and maintaining High Performance Marques such as Ferrari, Bentley, and Lamborghini, etc., as well as being the only UK Sales & Servicing Dealer for Keating Supercars, and are fast establishing ourselves as one of the leaders in our field. You can see more about this on the website here; http://www.bee-cool-performance-motorsport.co.uk/
In late 2017 we won ‘Highly Commended’ in the National Workshop Awards, and in 2018 we won Garage Of The Year for ‘Technology Innovation’. In late 2018 we became an ‘AA Approved’ Workshop, an accreditation that only a selected few garages can achieve.
In 2019 we continue to grow from strength to strength, we are now appointed Prototype Contractors for A/C Cooling Systems for some of the biggest names in the Car Industry, and have successfully completed many projects to date for, Jaguar Land Rover, Tata, The Geeley Group (London Taxi Co., Lotus, Saab UK), Maclaren Cars, David Brown Automotive, just to name a few!
We have also continued to pick up more National Awards, as we were awarded Garage Of The Year 2019 For ‘Outstanding Achievement’, and no doubt there will be more before 2019 comes to a close. Our growth continues at a rapid rate as well, having now established ourselves as the Largest Car A/C Specialist in the UK, we will shortly be launching a new Online Parts Webshop, another large leap into the future!
We can now say with 100% Confidence that you can trust us to look after all your car’s needs from beginning to end!
