Brotherwood Automobility have been providing quality mobility cars in Dorset and beyond since 1985. The company’s humble beginnings stem back to when founder Rod Brotherwood converted a vehicle for his friend John Lambert after he was paralysed in a motorbike accident. Brotherwood, who was already in charge of a vehicle restoration business at the time, succeeded in rebuilding a Nissan Prairie to Lambert’s specifications and then decided to focus his attentions solely on mobility cars. And so, from this act of friendship, Brotherwood Automobility was formed.
Since then, the organisation has gone from strength to strength. In its first year of production, the company made and sold 26 vehicles and, by 1991, had outgrown its original premises. The decision was taken to relocate to a modern, purpose-built site in Beer Hackett near Sherborne, and this is where Brotherwood have remained to this day.
At the time of the move, the company had expanded to employing 18 workers, who were producing roughly 12 cars per month. Now, there are no less than 58 members of staff and vehicles are shipped all over the world, including to Australia, South Africa and Asia. A truly local business that currently has an annual turnover of over £7 million, Brotherwood is a genuine success story which has always kept customer service as its top priority.
So, if you or a loved one are searching for wheelchair vehicles that you can rely on, you need look no further than Brotherwood Automobility. Having helped countless people improve their standards of living over the years, we take pride in the levels of freedom, comfort and flexibility that our cars provide.
