After a rapid progression through the ranks of other businesses, David Clarke felt ready to start his own business at 25 years old.He says: I\'d always enjoyed selling and really wanted to run a business. I\'d always had that entrepreneurial streak running through me, and wanted to progress and achieve more. It was a big gamble for me, but I really wanted to do it.With his first job out of school being a paint mixer, Autosupplies naturally started as a supplier to the refinishing and paintwork industry in 1990.
The company also has one of the best-developed websites in the industry, with possibly the widest selection of products offered by any factor.The \'onwards and upwards\' approach has clearly paid dividends, as the split in sales between refinishing products and components is nearly 50/50.Not bad compared to those early days, when the company employed two people and used one van!
