DPG Defenders is a fully equipped Workshop specialising in Land Rover Series/Defenders and Suzuki Jimnys. We also can carry out servicing, general maintenance, MOT and MOT repairs of all other 4x4 vehicles.
Founded by Dunstan Paul Greenbank, a fully qualified mechanic with 30 years mechanical experience, was brought up in Pickering and Slingsby of North Yorkshire where he has lived all his life apart from a short 24 year stint in the British Army.
Based in Keldholme on the outskirts of Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, we service the local area as well as catering for restoration and rebuild jobs nationwide. We are gradually expanding as the business grows, branching out into parts supply and working alongside other business to provide services to the 4x4 market.
Dunstan served/trained as a vehicle mechanic within the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) where a day didn`t pass without him either turning spanners or carrying out inspections of 4x4 vehicles.
From starting off as an apprentice, progressing through junior management to senior mangagement, Dunstan was heavily involved with the maintenance and inspection of a vast range of 4x4 vehicles from Land Rovers and Pinzgauers to 27 Ton recovery vehicles. He has carried out repairs all over the world, having served in Bosnia, Croatia, Falkland Islands, Kosovo, Macedonia, Canada, Germany and Afghanistan.
Due to Dunstan's military background including workshop management of up to 32 mechanics and the responsibility of up to 1000 equipments including Land Rovers, it is the aim that DPG Defenders is run in a similiar way, providing accurate lead times, spares sourcing and an effective service across the board..... a straight line service with accurate information.
Retiring from the Army in 2010, Dunstan worked for a 4x4 expedition preparation company. Here he achieved magazine featured Land Rover Series restorations on 2 occasions, and gained extensive experience within the civilian 4x4 sector, including expedition preperation, roll cage fitting and auxillary fuel/water tank fitting.
