FIX AUTO ADDS CAPE BRETON TO ITS ATLANTIC FOOTPRINT
Owner Brent Sampson elevates his family’s 57-year collision repair business to a new level
Halifax (Nova Scotia), August 4, 2021: Fix Auto, a leading international name in quality collision repair services, has reinforced its presence across the Atlantic region, welcoming a new location in the picturesque island of Cape Breton, in Nova Scotia.
Fix Auto Cape Breton, located in the River Bourgeois area of Cape Breton, builds on an existing collision repair business, previously called CSN Brent’s Auto Body, which has been operating in the area for the past 57 years. The shop is well reputed among customers and insurance providers in River Bourgeois and surrounding areas for offering quality collision repair and customer services.
Second generation owner Brent Sampson points out that the shop was established by his father and he got involved in the business very early in life. His interest in the repair business remains undiminished since. “Working alongside my father, I came to know the intricacies of running and operating a successful body shop business,” Brent explains. “I have worked in all possible roles at the shop and am always exploring ways to improve my shop’s operational efficiencies.
That mission led Brent to join Fix Network and take up the Fix Auto franchise for his area. He explains that the idea is incorporate some of the most advanced collision repair equipment in his shop and training his team in restoring vehicles of all makes and models to their original condition.
“Over the past few months, I have explored opportunities to expand the business from where my father started off,” Brent explains. “My wife and I visited Fix Network’s Milton training centre a few months back and met up with Fix Network’s President and CEO Steve Leal. Speaking to the team, we were impressed by their vision and direction and immediately decided that we wanted to be a part of this forward-thinking organization.”
Brent and his team soon aligned their business with Fix Auto to keep pace with the changing trends in the collision repair industry. “Joining a respected banner such as Fix Network ensures that our team can benefit from their ongoing training, operations and marketing support. Our onboarding has been relatively easier, and we look forward to profitable growth in the coming months,” he added.
Welcoming Fix Auto Cape Breton into the network, Mark Weeks, Regional Vice-President – Atlantic, Fix Network, says, “Cape Breton is a thriving and growing community where Brent Sampson and his team enjoy a solid reputation for quality repairs and customer service. We are confident that Fix Auto Cape Breton will further enhance Fix Auto’s reputation as a global aftermarket leader in this region.”
