'Craftsman' or 'Master of (a skill)'
A little bit about us...
Why Mastora? We like to think that we are a little different. We are a family run business based in the beautiful town of Alnwick, Northumberland. Having been established in Alnwick for over fifteen years since the family returned from working for a Charity overseas (please see some of our photos in History), the business has grown from strength to strength through customer recommendations and referrals. Our customer base is continually growing and with that comes our continued investment in equipment and training to provide the level of service required to meet the technological advances Land Rover are making.
Mastora’s Founder, Malcolm Diggens (Dad), started his career as an engineering apprentice at the Royal Aircraft Establishment and after qualifying, worked on the full size research and development Concorde. After completing his apprenticeship at the RAE, Malcolm later went on to set up his own highly respected Classic Car Business, restoring valuable Classics such as Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, etc. He later moved on to coach building purpose built medical Land Rovers for Charities, which eventually led to the whole family moving to live and work in Albania.
In June 2009, the family members of Mastora, without any prior warning of illness, lost a deeply loved, but also key member of the team, Carol, who was joint founder, wife and mother. This was a shattering blow to a very close family and dedicated team. In early 2010 the family members of Mastora decided, in loving memory of Carol, to relaunch the business with a new corporate identity using the lighthouse symbol within the name.
Since then, Mastora has had additional, dedicated members of staff join the team with the same vision of providing the best possible service to our customers. In June 2016, Malcolm Diggens (Founder and Chairman) decided to semi-retire, leaving Victoria in the role of Managing Director.
Both Victoria and Stuart were trained under Malcolm and have been with the business since it started in 2003. They continue to pass on their skills and knowledge to new members of the team as it grows. Mastora prides itself on its quality of workmanship and customer service with over 40 years experience of the Land Rover Marque.
If you would like to get in touch or have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch via our contact page, make a booking or simply give us a call on 01665 606745.
We look forward to welcoming you and your Land Rover.
