After returning from the war in 1945, Bill Sinclair bought an old sawmill in Port Talbot which he used as a garage for his car repair business. Since then, Sinclair Cars has grown to become one of the largest new and used car sellers in Wales. It also provides finance and operates repair and service centres. It is now run by Bill’s son Gerald.
