Carters - A History of Service

Carters of Swanwick was originally formed by two Carter Brothers in 1921. They provided servicing and repairs to Swanwick and the surrounding areas.

Swanwick was then considered a district covering a large part of the famous strawberry growing area from Botley through to Titchfield and down to Swanwick Wood where the old "Bursledon" Brickworks were located near the Hamble River. The business then was servicing and repairing horticultural and agricultural machines such as tractors and Rotavators. Motor cars, motorcycles, bicycles and farm machinery were also catered for.

After the Carters brothers, Mr Eric Farmer then owned the company for many years until Mr Stan Jacobs, who joined the company as a sales director in 1964, bought the company in 1975. Today, Stan’s son David is Managing Director.
