The very first picture from our first day of trading back in 1978 !

Befunky Collage - Clarkson Commercials

Wow this is a blast form the past. This was the first photograph taken on our first day of trading in June 1978. This is my father David, who risked his stable position within a large local motor dealership to start Clarkson of Glasgow with four used Transit vans ……… at that time I was eight years old. Fast forward a whopping 38 years and that eight year old boy is now forty six years old and running the family business …. and that’s me, Barry Clarkson ! What I do here isn’t a job, its a way of life. I’ve been brought up in the business on a basis of mutual understanding, pride and passion. What I’ve learned in all these years you don’t learn at university, its called the school of life and learning. So its for these reasons that Im so proud to fly the flag of being a fully independent family business and not a sprawling faceless multinational operation . Your business matters directly to me . Call me on 01417713990 I’m always here on site . Thanks Barry
