    Our History | Landrover and 4×4 Specialists 

    Our History

    After a long term family involvement in the motor trade running Rover Dealerships from the mid 1930’s, our history began when APB was established by Phillip Bond in the late sixties.

    Jack Bond opened and ran the first Rover Dealership in Nairobi, Kenya, in the early 1950’s.

    Phillip Bond spent 20 years competing in Specialist Land Rover & 4×4 off-road events with the All Wheel Drive Club (AWDC). As well as such events as the Rallye des Cimes & Plains & Vallies both in France).  Alongside this,  over the past 50 years has assembled a professional team, whose combined years of experience and knowledge has put APB ahead of the competition.

    APB Workshops carry out Land Rover & 4×4 vehicle servicing, repairs & M.O.T’s. In addition, vehicle overland travel & expedition preparation, specialist vehicle preparation, waxoyling and rustproofing. Our parts and warehouse department supplies parts and spares alongside adventure travel gear & equipment to a wide range of countries throughout the world.

    Back in the early 2000s APB became the sole UK importers for a number of South African companies: a country where adventure travel was born. Consequently, we stock many products which have been imported from South Africa, including Eezi- Awn K9 (the pioneers of the roof tent), National Luna (the inventors of a fridge for the transportation of vaccines for world health organisations). As well as Escape Gear (high quality canvas seat covers), Bushtech (superior heavy load canopy tops). Additionally,  Campmor offer high quality canvas ground tents and many more products.
