Our History

Weston Body Hardware history

The company was formed in 1984 by Peter Weston, as a second generation Management Buyout from the Wilmott Breedon organisation.

Our product range of locks, handles & Latches and our history were predominantly aligned to the British Motor Industry, supporting iconic brand names such as Austin Rover, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lotus, Aston Martin, Leyland Bus and Truck, ERF etc.

At the outset the Company’s Management Team quickly focused its attention on organic growth and opportunities to expand into other Markets and Sectors, providing Engineering solutions for Access Hardware into non-automotive applications and by providing a bespoke design as opposed to standard commodity.

During the early years, additions were made to our product range to encompass Steering Column Locks, Fuel Filler Caps and Hinges, as well as continually updating products to utilise alternative materials, including Stainless Steel and Injection Mouldings, to enhance aesthetic appearance and durability.
