Matt Goss

Matt previously worked in production and quality sign off for Aston Martin. It’s this discipline of taking a framework of acceptability and measuring each car against this that has been extended to Bamford Rose in our own renowned quality inspection, vehicle service and framework sign off procedures.

Matt’s experience of working under pressure in many successful motorsport teams has made him adept at installing Bamford Rose upgrade solutions right first time for our customers.

Our bodywork expert, Gary, formally worked for Aston Martin in the exacting discipline of prototype paint spraying and process/quality improvement production line spraying. Skills which he has brought to Bamford Rose to ensure that all bodywork is undertaken to the highest standards possible.

Jamie Wickham


Jamie joined us in 2017 as our first homegrown apprentice and has been working under Bamford Roses master technicians as he completes his technical qualifications and apprenticeship.

Today Jamie is following confidently in Adrian and Matt’s footsteps as a competent technician, apart from his dodgy taste in shorts.
