Micheldever Group

Winchester’s Micheldever aims to solve all customers’ tyre-related problems, whether they drive cars, motorbikes or trucks, and has built up a reputation for low prices. It has also branched out into other garage services including exhausts, brakes and shock absorbers. The majority of the firm is owned by private-equity house Graphite Capital Partners, which backed management to buy it from founder Anthony Todd in 2006. Sales for that year were £168.8m.
