We are delighted to announce that our parts supervisor, Martin Williams, completed his 30th year of service on Wednesday.
Martin joined us in 1989 at the age of 30, recruited to the role of Senior Parts Person, under our parts supervisor Ian Essex.
At the time our managing director was still our founder - Michael Roberts, and Trident Honda was an Austin Rover main dealer selling Austin Metro, Maestro, Montego, Rover 200 (based on the Honda Ballade) and the new Rover 800 (based on the Honda Legend).
Trident Honda had celebrated its 25th anniversary in the previous year.

Martin recollects his first day:
