R.W Lister Motor Engineer, started off small, with Robert William Lister, solely trading out of a hired garage within Botesdale. When Robert had a known local reputation for his business, he expanded to his own workshop in Mill Lane, Rickinghall and watched his business grow further. As his son, Andy, joined in 2002, the business changed its name to R.W Lister & Son Motor Engineers. 


After years of working at Mill Lane, Robert and Andy Lister moved to an old barn, on Lower Church Farm, Hinderclay Road, Rickinghall, and turned it into their workshop. 

In May 2012, the now well known business expanded, with an additional side building for an office, making way for the MOT bay within the workshop, making it the first garage to have an MOT bay in Rickinghall for 50 years!


Finally, in 2016 R.W Lister & Son became an Auto Care approved garage, meaning an extra range of benefits for customers.


The business is still going strong and their company vehicles are a well known sight for many in Rickinghall and the surrounding areas.
