Business helps put Brownlees on the road

The Brownlee Brothers are driving cars provided by Wheel Repairs.co.uk, after the company’s owner and managing director Dan Besau heard the brothers needed sponsored vehicles.

Mr Besau said: “This is a new venture for us as we undertake solely bespoke high-end alloy wheel repairs.

“We have invested in new CNC lathes and equipment to carry out the diamond cut repairs to a high standard and we are the only combined CNC Lathe and powder coating facility of this type in Yorkshire promoting an environmentally friendly paint-stripping method”.

Mr Besau, who is originally from Pickering, North Yorkshire, founded DentRepairs.co.uk, a mobile car repair company in 1995. DentRepairs.co.uk is now sharing the same industrial unit at Copley Hill as its sister company.
