Landmark 85th year for Suffolk car dealer Cecil And Larter

Suffolk car dealership Cecil And Larter is celebrating its 85th year of trading.

The business was founded in Bury St Edmunds in 1927 and has represented Volvo since 1970. More recently it added the Seat franchise.

The 49 employees at the car dealer, based on Mildenhall Road, have clocked up more than 500 years of service between them.

This includes six staff members who have each worked for the company for more than 25 years, including managing director Ray Cawson.

Leading the pack for long service is Butch Murrow, who has been with Cecil and Larter since 1971, followed by Lynne Wheeler who has been at the firm for more than 30 years.

Cawson said: “On reaching my quarter of a century I suddenly realised that quite a few employees had been with us for a considerable amount of time as well.

“So we quickly added up all our employees’ service records and it came to 563 years.

“For a relatively small business, in terms of employees, I thought that was quite unusual and would like to pay tribute to all of our staff for the commitment they have shown the company.”
