Stansfords Garage in Ifield Road became Southern Counties Garages on 1st July 1946. A glass cutter was employed in 1949 for replacement windscreens and door windows. This side of the business subsequently became Southern Counties Glass with premises in East Park. In 1955 the company took over the old Woolwich building in the Crawley High Street which was turned into car showrooms. The Ifield Road repair shop and Head Office were enlarged in 1957 when they took over the adjoining Crawley Metal Productions property, and in 1958 the company bought the Church of England School in Victoria Road for car showrooms. Expansion continued with the acquisition of Howletts, paraffin oil and general stores adjoining the garage, and an oil depot was set up in Victoria Road, now Southern Counties Fuels. Barker's Garage, in Three Bridges Road, was acquired in 1975.
