Creasey car trimmers is a small family firm, first established in 1981 by Max Creasey, who after leaving his engineering job, decided to make a full time job out of a part time hobby he was doing when his upholsterer teacher past away. Working from a workshop round the back of his house, early work was mainly boat interiors from his engineering contacts, but after restoring a Ford Model A, Max soon made contacts in the vintage vehicle field, along with car dealerships around Ipswich.
The firm stayed steady from that point on, with friendly values leading to a wide client list, all work was coming in through word of mouth and not until five years ago did we finally put a small few lines in the yellow pages to help clients find our number. In 1993 Max’s son Richard joined the firm, and has helped move the firm along without changing any of the family values. In 2006 Richard took over most of the running of the firm with Max cutting back to four days a week. Sadly Max passed away in July 2012, and now Richard mainly works alone, using the vast experience Max has passed on, in July 2012 Richard’s wife Donna stepped up her role in the firm and works at least One day a week to help with the work load and to carry on the family tradition. Through out the years there has always been pressure to expand, but rather than risk becoming a autonomous firm we stayed close to our roots as a friendly, professional and personal company, always willing to do the smallest job to the biggest. Our client list is still as varied as ever from the main car dealers to the Police force. We still work from workshops around the rear of what is now Richard’s home in Kesgrave, please come and give us a look we are always here to help and can try to answer any of your questions, we’re afraid we can’t normally go out to quote, as our schedule of work is usually quite full, but please feel free to contact us and preferably bring your vehicle around so we can have a look…
