Henry Patel hardly needs any introduction to the motorist of Wellingborough and the surrounding area. He started his career as an apprentice with York Ward & Rowlett in 1970 and has been maintaining cars to a high standard ever since.
It was perhaps inevitable that he should start his own business, and Henry finally took the plunge, opening a garage in Arthur Street, Wellingborough in 1984. By 1988, Henrys Autos had expanded enough to move to its current premises in Salem Lane and within a year had developed further to become a MOT testing station.
Since the Henrys Autos has been so successful that it now employs five mechanics in addition to himself, with both of his sons working at the garage.
