LDS Motor Factors was opened on March 1st 1990 in Main Street, Barry. It employed two members of staff and had one delivery van. By 1997 LDS was employing eight members of staff and had three delivery vans. It was at this point that LDS realised that it was ready to open a second depot.
In September 1998 LDS Nantgarw was born at Taffs Business Centre in Treforest. It initially started with five members of staff and three delivery vans.
In July 2001 we relocated it to a purpose built facility, with over eleven and a half thousand square foot of space and very prominent position at Nantgarw, Cardiff. It now employs eighteen members of staff and has 8 delivery vehicles servicing Cardiff, Pontypridd, Llantrisant and other local areas.
In July 2009 the company moved its head office from the original site in Main Street Barry to its new multipurpose built unit in a very prominent position with over nineteen thousand square foot at Cardiff Road Barry servicing Barry, Penarth, West Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
On January 2nd 2014 we opened our third branch in the heart of the Rhondda where we had an existing customer base that required the needs of its own local LDS branch. It now employs 9 members of staff with 4 vans servicing the area.
May 1st 2015 saw a company merger with NORMAG motor factors in Swansea who had a single branch in the heart of a thriving city and is now trading as LDS NORMAG.
