Two brothers are hoping to put skills learned in the military to civilian use after opening their own vehicle servicing centre.

Gary and Shaun Hynd opened G&S Auto Services in Harleston in January, after Shaun finished a 22-year career with the RAF.

Together they have more than 30 years’ engineering experience, mostly on military vehicles and associated ground equipment, including Apache helicopter flight training devices.

Gary says the garage will offer diagnostic and repair services for vehicles and related equipment. He hopes to bring in revenue of £83,000 in the first year.

“One of the local car dealers has already put some work our way from his forecourt,” said Gary.

The pair also have a desire to offer training to young mechanics.

Gary said: “Shaun and I served our time as apprentices in the military but we would like to give young people an opportunity of employment with us.”
