Young entrepreneur launches Autosheen business

As rising youth unemployment is described as a ‘disaster’at Davos and politicians lament a ‘lost generation, one 20-year-old from Ottery St Mary has defied the trend by launching his own successful business.
Recent figures show youth unemployment has risen to a fresh record high, with more than one in five 16 to 24-year-olds out of work. The youth unemployment rate is 22% in the UK, compared with a general unemployment rate of 8.3%.

Determined not to become part of that depressing statistic, forward looking Robin Latcham launched an Autosheen valeting business in the Exeter area last year, providing a range of premium services to local motorists.

Since he joined the UK’s leading network of valeting franchisees, Robin’s business has gone from strength to strength. The young entrepreneur reports that customers are queuing up for specialist services such as paintwork and glass protection, damage correction and a detailing service that removes every speck of dirt from a vehicle (even under the bonnet!) restoring it to showroom condition.

“Very few valeting companies can provide the range or the quality of services I can,” says Robin. “I think if you’re prepared to work hard and are focused on doing a great job for people, investing in your own business is a brilliant way forward. I’ve certainly no regrets and I’m looking forward to building my business further as word spreads about my services!”

Autosheen has recently introduced new marine and leisure vehicle valeting services, which means Robin can also clean and maintain boats and caravans, using specialist techniques and industry leading purpose designed products.

Autosheen is uniquely accredited by the Institute of the Motoring Industry (IMI) Awards.
