The MB Centre’s story began in 2003 with the introduction of the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation, which meant that vehicles could now be maintained outside of the dealer network without invalidating the manufacturer’s warranty.
With that in mind, MB Centre’s Company Director Nick Winter, left Mercedes-Benz of Nottingham formally B&K Thomas Ltd (Nottingham’s main dealership for over 50 years) with the intention to offer Mercedes-Benz customers a realistic alternative to the main dealer with the ability to offer diagnostic and complex work which no other independent specialists in Nottingham could. As part of a partnership, Mercedes First Ltd was created. In 2005 both business partners parted ways in order to pursue different visions. Nick was determined to offer customers everything that the main dealership could offer without the heavy price tag, and so opened MB Centre Ltd which is where we are today. Our business was originally staffed wholly with ex B&K Thomas employees, many of whom have since retired, yet ongoing investment in training and equipment has ensured that we have continued to remain up to date with technology and our staff are fully trained on Mercedes Benz vehicles. We are now lucky enough to have the Thomas family as our customers.
In 2008 the MB Centre moved to larger premises with 8 ramps and a dedicated commercial workshop. In 2018 the building went through a full refurbishment and was re-designed purposely to suit our needs. In January 2022 we purchased a further 6500 square foot of workshop space giving us the opportunity to grow and increase our services.
