“I’m delighted to be able to bring in staff that boast experience, expertise, and enthusiasm in equal measure, and feel confident that the appointments will help underpin our ambitions for further growth.”
Twisted specialises in re-engineering the Land Rover Defender into the best vehicle it can be. Established in 2001 by Charles Fawcett, Twisted exports its product to customers all over the world. Most vehicles are crafted tailored to an individual’s requirements, though the recent launch of the Classic range allows customers to order and drive away, for the first time.
