Ivor Gordon, Chairman and stepson of the company's founder was at the helm of Frank Dale & Stepsons for over 50 years before his passing in 2016. James Crickmay started as a salesman at Frank Dale in 1980 and became Ivor’s long term business partner for over 30 years. His son, Giles Crickmay, joined the company in 2006 and following the sad passing of James in 2015 is now Managing Director. Keeping the family tradition alive James' daughter Emma Crickmay joined the company in 2015 supporting her brother as Director. Vincent Roma has been managing the workshop for the past 25 years and Greg West oversees the day to day operations as General Manager. Together, they fondly remember Ivor’s words before his retirement in 2013, "My stepfather started the business in 1946 and from humble beginnings we have continued to grow. I think it is fair to say that we have now established ourselves as one of the leading providers of rare and valuable Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars. Over the past seven decades we have handled some of the most important examples built by the two companies. I think the secret to our success has been our own love for these cars, we are enthusiasts ourselves".
As Ivor and James before them Giles, Emma, Vincent and Greg, along with their team of experienced engineers and craftsmen have created an atmosphere of friendliness, enthusiasm and above all professionalism that has customers visiting from all over the world to buy, service and restore their cars, or simply for trustworthy advice.
The overseas market has become increasingly important with cars for export accounting for a substantial percentage of our sales. We offer full facilities for delivery and registration abroad with a multitude of contacts throughout Europe, The United States of America and the Far East to assist purchasers through importation and registration formalities.
