Originally from South Africa, Keith established United in 1992 soon after moving to the UK. Previously, Keith completed two years of military service in South Africa and has dedicated his entire life to the industry, qualifying as a Diesel Fuel Injection Technician at the age of 21 and working for the family business, which also included completion of field service diagnostics. Keith (also known as the KitKat man to many of his customers!) has a wealth of experience and a proven history as a Managing Director in the motor industry, skilled in business management, and customer service. Keith believes his extensive career within the diesel fuel injection industry and his background of four generations makes him perfectly placed to service this sector.
