We love to welcome new businesses to Heathhall Business Centre, and in March we welcome Heathhall MOT Station. We also love to show you the people behind the business at Heathhall Business Centre, so we’d like to introduce you to Robin Hyslop. Robin has been in the motor trade for more than 45 years, so he knows a thing or two about cars.
Modern, well equipped garage and MOT facility.
That’s why Robin will open the doors to Heathhall Business Centre’s latest enterprise – Heathhall MOT Station – in early March 2020. Work is well underway to convert Units 14-16 to a modern, well-equipped garage services facility – and the first of its kind at Heathhall Business Centre to provide MOT services, as well as full garage services, tyres and servicing for cars and light commercial vehicles.
Robin first started in the motor industry as an apprentice in 1975:
“I started in the motor trade as apprentice mechanic at Nithsdale Garage at Dockhead on the Whitesands – in the space now occupied by the Snooker Club – before moving to Castle Douglas to work for Haugh’s Garage in 1977. I worked there for seven years before moving back to Dumfries to work for the old Corries garage, then SMT and Dumfries Motor Company, ending up as service manager at the Southergate Motor Company. After a few years I decided to take the plunge and become self employed.”’
We’re delighted that Robin chose Heathhall Business Centre for his MOT Station and Garage:
“For me, Heathhall Industrial Estate is the ideal location for the MOT Station and Garage – it’s a well-established business centre with great facilities, and a good mix of businesses. And when the opportunity came up to take three units together I jumped at the chance. I already run the Red Star Sambo Mixed Martial Arts Club there so I know the Business Centre well.”

As well as working hard to refit the units and get ready to open the garage doors, Robin will also launch his new website and social media presence to make it easy for customers to find out more about his garage and MOT services, so check our tenant directory for more details. Robin looks forward to welcoming customers to Heathhall MOT Station in early March.
