4 Elms Group is expanding!

We are excited to announce that we have purchased a third bodyshop! We are now the proud owners of the Hidsons Group Bodyshop in Rainham, Kent. The Hidsons Group had recently been taken over by The JCB Group who we are excited to strengthen our relationship with during the transition process and beyond.


This latest acquisition increases our coverage in the area and brings new manufacturer approvals including Citroen, Kia and Mitsubishi to add to our portfolio as well as new a brand new skill set to our workforce.


Robert Dearnaley Managing Director of 4 Elms Group said ‘We’re really pleased that the addition of this third site further strengthens our position in North Kent and, subject to dotting a few i’s and crossing a few t’s, adds Citroen, Kia and Mitsubishi to our stable of manufacturer approvals as well as moving us further into the retail sector with the bodyshop being on Hidson Group’s Citroen Main Dealership in the centre of the town.’

And the winner is...

4 Elms Group are delighted to announce that we have chosen the RBLI Gavin Astor House Minibus to renovate for FREE. The vehicle has been specially converted to transport three wheelchairs and their occupants on outings and would be massively expensive to replace, so to refurbish it would prolong its life and give it a fresh look that will raise awareness for this fantastic cause!


Joining forces with global paint company, AkzoNobel, between us we will provide the paint and facilities so the technicians from both companies, including our AutoRaise apprentices, can get stuck into a project that will give the exterior some much needed TLC.


Based in Royal British Legion Industries’ Aylesford village, which houses more than 300 residents, Gavin Astor House is a specialist nursing care home, providing longer-term support and care as well as shorter respite care packages. The nursing staff at GAH work tirelessly to ensure that residents have the opportunity to take part in social occasions – and the Gavin Astor House minibus is crucial in helping them achieve that.


GAH’s social care co-ordinator Sarah Winter, who drives the minibus, along with help from colleague Marc Taylor and RBLI volunteers, said “the staff cannot thank 4 Elms Group and AkzoNobel enough for kindly offering to refurbish the bus.”


She added: “It is one of the most important tools we have in improving the lives of the residents at Gavin Astor House. “It allows us to take trips out to Herne Bay, the beach, local garden centres, pub lunches and loads of other events without the commitment of having to hire transport. It gives us an immense amount of freedom to give residents days out which greatly benefits their wellbeing – so to have it refurbished is nothing short of phenomenal.”


Robert Dearnaley Managing Director of 4 Elms Group said “Having personally spent time with the team at GAH recently, I cannot think of a more deserving cause and we are looking forward to starting the project!” Keep following our social pages for photos and updates!

Industry Apprenticeship Charity Launch

Last Friday, 4 Elms Group MD Robert Dearnaley was invited to the launch event for AutoRaise, the vehicle repair industry’s charity at The Tower of London.


It was a very uplifting experience, listening to plans to get more young people involved in the industry and in turn working towards reversing the chronic skills shortage. We are extremely proud of our association with AutoRaise, supporting this fantastic cause and we want to urge any young people interested in a vehicle repair career to contact us for more information about our own Apprenticeship Scheme.
