BMW Service and Repairs – Humble Beginnings
As you might have guessed, we are passionate about what we do. We love taking care of your BMW and Mini service, repairs and maintenance.
This passion all started when Gilles Bedier started his apprenticeship at BMW. Soon he was servicing and maintaining cars privately for family and friends on the weekends. His service excellence and commitment to quality and detail soon meant that he needed to consider whether to risk starting on his own.
GP Motor Works Is Born
Fortunately, he took the leap of faith and in 1996; Gilles left BMW and commenced his own business in Craighall Park with one employee. They soon outgrew the space available and then in 2001 they moved to Conrad Drive, Blairgowrie. They took over the Renault dealership servicing BMW and Renault. The staff complement grew to seven employees….things were moving!
In 2006 they moved to Randburg and then made the bold decision in 2007 to purchase their own land so that they could be masters of their own destiny.
In 2010, the first spade of soil was turned as building commenced on the property in West Avenue, Ferndale.
In 2011, GP Motor Works moved into its own, state of the art, vehicle service and repair facility.
We now have a staff complement of eleven employees who are eager to see how they can be of service to you.
Over the last eighteen years or so, we have built up a base of over 3600 clients who we believe are happy with their experience at GP. Fortunately, many of our clients have been with us a long time and some good friendships and business partnerships have evolved as well.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you get your vehicle serviced properly and at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
