Matt Twigge

Company Owner

A brief overview of Matt’s Previous Work History:

Served his automotive apprenticeship working on Mini’s, Austin, Morris Minor, Leyland, Rover and Land rover. Matt has worked at Honda, Ford and Toyota dealerships; he has over the years worked at independent mechanical workshops working on most makes and models of vehicles. In 1992 Matt was head hunted to work for Pit Stop in Palmerston North, NZ (New Zealand) this was to be his start in the specialist Brake and Exhaust industry. Matt worked his way up to managing one of the 2 workshops in Palmerston North. He finally moved to Tauranga, NZ to purchase a run down existing Pit Stop Franchise and in 1997 won a NZ Franchisee Award for Certificate of Merit for his efforts. Mount Maunganui was the site for the 2nd Pit Stop Franchise we were starting to learn more and more about Franchising and the benefits thereof. Cut forward a few years and having moved to Queensland. 2006 saw me managing a brake specialist outlet but the beck and call of being self employed had me start up First Class Brakes – it’s the last metre that matters! And the future is looking exciting…
