Talbot Design

The Talbot brothers, Chris and Gary, started out as general builders but changed direction when the housing market slumped. A client for whom they were building a house extension asked them to refurbish his Mercedes-Benz dealership in Guildford. It was the start of a new business. Today Talbot Design focuses on designing, constructing and refurbishing car showrooms. With Volkswagen, Mercedes and BMW among its clients, the Aldershot company’s sales have grown 92% a year from £1.4m in 1997 to £10.2m in 2000, when it had 35 staff.
