Autohead Recon Ltd - Company Background
Autohead Recon was formed by Thomas W MacLean in early January 1991 to fill a gap in the existing market in the Highlands & Islands.
Having been involved in Welding & Engineering for many years, this was to be the foundation for a successful transformation into the Automotive Industry; mainly specialising in the repair & reconditioning of cracked & damaged Cylinder Heads.
The original business plan was for a staff of four, to service the local industry from an Industrial Unit in Muir of Ord offering a high quality service with a quick turnaround at a cost effective price.
From the outset, Quality & Customer satisfaction have been at the forefront. The initial investment on the very latest machinery available at the time, being testimony to the long service the Company would be offering.
Within a matter of months the Company was well established with a sound customer base, attracting customers from the Islands of Scotland, Mainland UK & Ireland.
Not only single jobs from garages but pallet loads from engine reconditioners. Following our success in the UK, Autohead Recon now receives Cylinder Heads from customers in France, Belgium & Denmark, proving that distance is no object when it comes to quality.
In 1994, we moved to Inverness, requiring new, larger premises, with the addition of a comprehensive stock of new Cylinder Heads, Camshafts, Gaskets, Valves & Head bolts to compliment the reconditioned heads in stock ready for immediate dispatch.
