MR. ALLAN J. BORKETT: F.I.M.E., whose portrait appears on this page, is managing director of Halls Commercial Division (Halls Car Sales, Ltd.), which, for some months past, has been acting as sole London distributor for the Seddon oil-engincd 6-tonner.. He is no new-corner to the commercial, vehicle business, for it was as long ago as 1919 that he ran his own haulage concern, starting with a Model T Ford, and, as activities expanded, building up a fleet which comprised vehicles ol Leyland, . Peerless, Pierce Arrow, F.W.D. and Berna makes, until in 1023 he was regularly operating 22 machines. He helped to pioneer the London-toBirmingham 'night run in the days when windscreens were non-existent and acetylene head lamps had to be relied on for lighting, and it is this early experience, coupled with the fact that he had made a keen study of subsequent developments in the industry, that has provided him with a good understanding of operators' running and servicing problems as they exist to-clay. Later he met Mr. Lionel Hall, A.M.Inst.B.E,, who is chairman and a director of the company, and together they entered the car-distributorship business, specializing in one make (Standard). They achieved much success in.this field and in that relating to commercial sales in the lighter class, until the outbreak of war brought such activities to arc abrupt end. Mr. Borkett still had a leaning towards heavy commercials, which is the reason for the present association with Messrs. Foster and Seddon and the decision to handle a spare-parts service for Perkins oil engines. Future policy embraces specialization in oil-engined commer cial vehicles, and plans are well advanced for establishing a first-class service station at premises already in existence in Finchley, North London, so that, in the immediate post-war period, well-conceived arrangements will be available to oiler operators.
