About MB Automotive

Here at MB Automotive we are committed to investment in people, diagnostics equipment, training and tooling making sure we stay up to date with your vehicle and ahead of the ever changing technology.

MB Automotive was formed in 2010 by Edd Berridge who has worked with Mercedes-Benz since leaving school and who has over 30 years experience, from his apprenticeship at B&K Thomas of West Bridgford up until December 2009 at Mercedes-Benz of Nottingham.

Due to our continued success and ever increasing demand for our services we have recruited 3 additional fully trained Mercedes-Benz technicians. The first, Ian Pavier, joined us in 2015. He started his career with Mercedes-Benz straight from school where he joined B & K Thomas of Nottingham in 1990. Ian has now amassed over 30 years experience with the marque.

The second, Nick Fletcher, joined the team in 2020. Nick also started his Mercedes-Benz career with B & K Thomas where he served for 25 years, followed by a further 10 years at a Mercedes-Benz specialist.

And recently, we recruited Lee Hammond, who joined us in 2021. Lee started with B & K Thomas in the late 1990’s where he served for 18 years before joining a Mercedes-Benz specialist for a further 8 years.

And finally, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Martin Cosgriff who joined us in 2020 and runs this entire operation. Martin joined B & K Thomas as a parts advisor before working his way up to parts manager and has nearly 15 years experience with Mercedes-Benz.

In short, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience with Mercedes-Benz, amassing over 130 years between us.

MB Automotive’s objective is to provide Mercedes-Benz drivers a genuine and realistic alternative to the main dealer. Using the same genuine parts, installed by Mercedes-Benz trained technicians, using like for like tooling and equipment at a much more sensible and affordable price with an honest and reliable approach.

We are committed to keeping the running costs of Mercedes-Benz ownership as low as possible.
