Darren Shaw

Owner/Operator

Darren first opened Malvern Auto Electrical in 2000 in Burke Road, Malvern opposite Central Park. In 2012 we had outgrown our premises and took the opportunity to buy Vitesse Developments from John and Sam who were retiring. Since then we have expanded beyond being Auto Electrical and Air Conditioning specialists to performing mechanical servicing and technical repairs for both retail and trade clients.

Darren renamed the business Malvern Auto Services to reflect the increased range of services provided which now include auto electrical, air-conditioning, Guardian Interlock and mechanical servicing and repairs. John and Sam (Vitesse Developments) passed on their experience in their speciality of 4 X 4 vehicles and with continued education, targeted technician hiring and training we are now also specialists in European cars. Darren serves on the Auto Electrical Division of the VACC and is an active participant in the Bosch Car Service network.
