After returning from war in 1945, Bill Sinclair opened his first garage in Port Talbot, and the company has grown to become one of largest motor groups in Wales. Still headquartered in West Glamorgan, the firm runs a network of 19 car dealerships across South and West Wales, selling marques including Audi, Mercedes, Smart and Volkswagen. It also lets out vehicles, provides financing and contract hire services as well as bodywork and servicing. The company is run by Bill’s son, Gerald, who oversaw sales of £172.8m in 2008.
