Andy Richardson is the Autoglym franchise owner at Don Richardson Ltd, which was originally started by his father in 1967. Andy has been involved with Autoglym in one way or another for over 30 years. What has kept him there so long? Ask Andy and he will tell you it is because of the quality of the Autoglym products and the professionalism of the people who work within the business.
The franchise is one of the larger within the Autoglym network with 10 Sales Specialists and a fleet of 10 vehicles which are fitted out according to their function. Some are mobile showrooms, some dedicated delivery vehicles and others for demonstrating products to new customers.
Why so many vehicles? Well with North West of England and North Wales to cover you need to be able to service a large area. The franchise area includes North Staffordshire in the South, Anglesey in the West, South Lake District in the North and across to The Pennines in the East. Of course this incorporates the major conurbations of Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
A firm believer in offering excellent products and service at an excellent price, Andy and the team relish the opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of the Autoglym range, and showcase the fantastic results and cost savings achieved compared to other chemical suppliers.
