Celebrating 100 years of excellence

Frank G.Gates, an army officer returning home from the 1st World War with a baby son and an entrepreneurial spirit, decided that there may be a good future in automobile sales, service and repair. With the help of his father, Frank opened for business in South Woodford and was appointed as one of the first Ford Authorised dealers in 1920.

Now in 2020, we are celebrating our Centenary year as the Gates legacy continues with the business still very much retaining the family touch.
