About Us


David Martin Motor Engineers is a well established local family run business in Thurston just outside Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

The business was set up in 2001 by David who previously worked for Eastern Electricity for over 20 years repairing and servicing commercial vehicles. David spent the latter years managing local workshops for Eastern Electricity before taking voluntary redundancy.

David and Sarah (David's wife) started up the business in partnership with David working in the workshop and Sarah doing the administration. David was assisted in the workshop by one of his previous colleagues from Eastern Electricity Keith Osborne.

With the loyal customer base growing, their son Adam joined the business in 2005 to work alongside David and Keith in the workshop closely followed by Robert Godwin in 2007.

2007 also saw the premises grow with the building of a new fully automated one man MOT bay which now enables us to MOT and repair light commercial vehicles.

Keith Osborne retired in 2012 which led to Damien Saffery joining us in the workshop to work with Adam and Robert.

The business continues to grow and expand each year. Now offering tyres and car sales as well as MOT's, servicing and repairs on all makes and models of cars and light commercial vehicles.

The business now runs very successfully with three fully qualified technicians, an apprentice and a permanent administrator.

David and Sarah now take more of a back seat role within the business with Adam now overseeing the running and organising.
