Centre adds 13,000 square feet production facility to meet increasing demand for quality collision repairs

HALIFAX (Nova Scotia), October 1, 2020 – Fix Auto Saint John East has announced the expansion of its operations following a major upgrade of its facility, in order to meet increasing local demand for advanced collision repair services.

Over the past few years, Fix Auto Saint John East has emerged as a distinctive New Brunswick landmark, witnessing an impressive year-on-year growth. The new facelift will boost its current repair capabilities by three times and will include high-performance technologies and systems designed to meet the huge demand for quality collision repairs in the region.

Previously spread over 5,000 square feet, Fix Auto Saint John East has now added a 13,000 square foot production facility, which includes an extended paint booth and double preparation station, 3M dustless sanders, Spanesi frame measuring unit, aluminum welder, resistance welder, silicon-bronze welder, fusion plastic welder and a chassis-liner frame machine.

David ‘Scott’ Trites, Owner and President of Fix Auto Saint John East, has been in the automotive repair business for over 32 years and a Fix Auto strategic partner since 2012. He points out that the expansion will further underline his facility’s reputation as a one-stop destination for advanced collision repairs and demonstrates his commitment to implement operational best practices.

“The automotive industry is evolving faster than ever before, and today’s vehicles are increasingly incorporating sophisticated systems, components and materials to make them more efficient. It is therefore very important that our team stays on top of current trends,” says Scott. “While we have grown exponentially over the years, the latest expansion reflects our keenness to invest in technologies, training and processes that can meet the most demanding international repair standards.”

Scott and his team are determined to use their combined experience of 283 years to build one of the most formidable repair facilities in the Atlantic region. The Fix Auto Saint John East is currently working towards I-Car Gold Certification, the rigorous industry standard for training that contributes to complete and safe repair.

Mark Weeks, Regional Vice President for Fix Network Atlantic, adds, “Scott and his team have always been forward-thinking when it comes to embracing new technologies and operational efficiencies. They have seen the evolution of the auto industry over the years at close quarters and continue to inspire other franchise owners in the Fix Network by their sheer determination. At Fix Network, we support and encourage such progressive entrepreneurs who keep ahead of the game.”
