The history of Barretts of Canterbury

Company founder George R Barrett started the business in Canterbury in 1902, selling cycle and motor fittings. In the 1920s, an extensive new showroom was built, selling cars under the name G R Barrett and Son. Sales steadily rose and in 1939 Barretts of Canterbury, as it was now trading under, became a private limited company.

After damages which occurred during WW2, the Barrett family had to rebuild the company site and ended up opening a huge new workshop boasting the latest modern facilities. Today, the business remains under family ownership and still operates from its original site in Canterbury.
