GKs through the years...
Our History

You might remember GK Motor Factors to have more than it's current Witham store - and you'd be correct. 

GKs began in 1987 under ownership of Geoff with two stores - Colchester and Witham

Colchester was huge - It was where Graphics began and 90's nostalgia was king. We're talking body kits, tribal stickers down the side of vehicles, ICE on steroids and wheels on display. Sadly in 2009, the economy meant rising overheads such as electricity bills and rent, coupled with falling sales, meant the store had to close.

Witham's time to shine - GKs Witham took over where Colchester left off. Whilst it has a smaller premises, it offered (and still does!) the sames services of Colchester: Car parts, cycles, graphics.

2016 saw the retirement of Geoff and the instating of Keith, employee of 24yrs, to Director. 

Keith has been successfully running the business ever since and Witham has been going from strength to strength serving loyal and new customers alike. Geoff still pops in for a catch up and a cuppa from time to time! 

Early 2020 saw huge change for GKs - the grand refit! Blue and yellow was no more. Elegant grey and black replaced the beige 1980's style walls. However our heritage wasn't forgotten - you'll still find a splash of blue here and there. 

The vinyl flooring replaced with carpet. All shelves replaced and stock organised into more logical shopping areas.

Graphics department received a dedicated portion of the shop.

Cycles now have pride of place at the front of the shop. A larger cycle repair area built.

 

Thank you for supporting your local business!

2020 and 2021 in particular have been very difficult for us all. We're very lucky to say we're still going strong through all the hardships and this is thanks to our customers - and we are grateful for your continued support.

We're proud and honoured to continue to serve the Witham community with our unique set of services - and we wouldn't dream of taking that away any time soon.
