Our Journey & Team
Over 35 years ago, in 1984, Peter Hilton started the body repair business from his parents’ double garage which later became The Hilton Group as you know it today.
The driving force behind the business has always been to provide a service that is second to none and it’s our passion for quality and excellence which has allowed us to become the largest manufacturer-approved repairer in the UK, approved by over 20 of the country’s most prestigious automotive brands.
It’s taken years of hard work to build our reputation from the ground up and we constantly strive to become better, investing in the future to ensure we can grow in line with our plans – to welcome both new customers as well as those customers who return year after year.
Peter Hilton talks candidly about the journey from a double garage to how the business operates today, the importance of a great team and plans for the future.
