Formerly known as James Kelly Motor Engineers, the Reddingmuirhead company has now changed its name to KM (Kelly Mitchell) Automotive Ltd and has added a new string to its bow with the addition of a Kelpie Campers – a camper van sales business, which offers great value on converted Volkswagen Transporter camper vans which are stylish, reliable and offer a comfortable, hassle free alternative to tent-based camping.

A spokesperson for KM Automotive Ltd said: “James Kelly would like to take the opportunity to inform his regular and loyal customers he has changed the name of his business.

"We have added two new directors – Jonathan Kelly, son of founder James Kelly, and Kevin Mitchell, which is the main reason for the name change. We aim to preserve and grow the business for many years to come.

“James Kelly very much remains involved in the day-to-day running of the business and will still be the face you see – along with his daughter, Suzanne – when you bring your car in for its service, MOT or anything else it requires.

"We remain a small family-run business and will deliver the service and honest opinion on your car just as James has done for the past 30 plus years. We have also acquired the camper van company Kelpie Campers previously owned solely by Kevin and his wife Kirsty and we now sell camper vans.”
