The garage was originally founded over 100 years ago as Staffordshire Tyre Repair Company and has been owned and operated by the Bennett family for generations. The current owner, Simon Bennett, made the decision to join First Stop in order to offer customers an even better service and stay ahead of the game when it comes to technology and mobility solutions in an ever-changing marketplace.

“We are extremely excited to be embarking on a new journey with First Stop,” said Simon Bennett. “The partnership will allow us to offer our customers an even better service and stay ahead of the game when it comes to technology and mobility solutions in an ever-changing marketplace. We want to reassure customers that the same team that they are familiar with will remain, along with our customary levels of honesty and trust.”

The location will now stock a broader range of premium tyres featuring the Bridgestone and Firestone ranges for the first time. In addition, technicians will also be trained to even higher levels and existing garage equipment will be upgraded.

Mark Widdows, First Stop retail network manager, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Simon and his team to the First Stop Network. The reputation he has built up in Wolverhampton over the years is second-to-none and his decision to partner with us validates our own franchise proposition. Each garage we partner with shares our same values and are respected businesses in their communities. It goes without saying that we couldn’t think of a more fitting garage to partner with than First Stop Wolverhampton. We will now be able to offer them support in a number of ways and we can’t wait to get to work.”
