Fred Bedford

Fred Bedford

Founder of Bedfords Motors | Panel Beater

After training as a panel beater, Fred founded the business back in 1961 along with his then business partner Luke Nolan.  Fred has remained at the forefront of the business over the years, and although the technology in cars and also in garage equipment has moved on, some things always remain the same - having a keen eye, and steady hand for shaping steel panels!  

To keep active, Fred enjoys playing badminton in his spare time.  He has been playing almost as long as he's been repairing cars!
