Bristol Street Motors Orpington Ford is saying a sad goodbye to Peter Lewin, a Parts Advisor who has served the company with distinction for nearly five decades. Peter, who turns 70 in July, is hanging up his hat after a remarkable 48-years with the company.

Starting his career at Bristol Street Motors Bromley Ford in November 1976, Peter began on the parts desk, handling phone sales. His dedication and expertise in automotive parts have been a constant throughout his career. For the past year, Peter has been a cornerstone of the team at Ford Orpington.

He is looking forward to this new chapter in his life and plans to spend more time with his family, including his wife Jacqueline and their two children. He is also eager to indulge in his passions for cooking and wine-making.

Reflecting on his career, Peter said: "The industry has transformed tremendously over the years. When I started, everything was written down and kept manually. It’s been incredible to see the growth of Bristol Street Motors to more than 100 dealerships and to work with so many wonderful colleagues."

Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Bristol Street Motors, commented: "Peter embodies the spirit and dedication we value at Bristol Street Motors. His service over 48 years is an extraordinary achievement, and he leaves behind a legacy of excellence and commitment. We wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement."

Geoffrey Taylor, General Manager at Bristol Street Motors Orpington Ford, added: “Peter is a much-valued colleague and his experience and support for everyone here at the dealership has been invaluable. He will be greatly missed but we all wish him a long and happy retirement.”

Peter's departure marks the end of an era for Bristol Street Motors, which recently celebrated 100 years since the opening of its first dealership on Bristol Street in Birmingham. As one of the longest-serving colleagues, Peter has been a testament to the company's growth and evolution in the automotive industry.
