Matthew has been working in car body repairs for over 25 years, and is one of the most experienced professionals in the region. He has worked in all types of bodyshops, including one of Europe’s largest Audi and Volkswagen dealerships, based in Sweden.
At the time, Sweden was well ahead in terms of requiring the use of environmentally friendly, waterbased paint systems – so when similar legislation was introduced in the UK, Matthew was ahead of the game.
For many years he was a partner in a highly regarded Portsmouth body repair shop, working with clients such as the Solent Group, who include Nissan, Mazda and Citroën dealerships under their umbrella.
Matthew’s accumulated depth of knowledge and skill, combined with the desire to offer a more versatile service, led to him founding Hampshire Repair and Spray Centre, along side his partner Annie, at premises closer to their home in Fareham.
