The Shortis Group has been serving motorists for half a century.

When Kevin Shortis opened his first shop 50 years ago he became a pioneer of the discount motor spares industry. Now the stores and depots have grown into a chain of companies with 81 sites including an internet business. The branches stretch from London to Yorkshire but the business is still rooted in East Anglia and, despite its far-reaching success, is proud to retain its local feel.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Shortis Group – which includes Wilco Motor Spares, Fast-Fit, Wilco Motosave, E.U. Ltd and E.U. Linco – don't miss a special eight-page supplement in the Eastern Daily Press on Thursday and Evening News on Friday about the local motoring group that grew like Topsy.
