FIX AUTOMOTIVE NETWORK ATLANTIC TEAM COMES TOGETHER FOR REGIONAL MEETINGS
Fix Auto, Speedy Auto Service and NOVUS Glass owners from around Atlantic Canada gather in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
HALIFAX (Nova Scotia), October 15, 2018 – Small but mighty, is probably the best way to describe the Fix Automotive Network (FAN) Atlantic region. On October 3rd – 4th, this dynamic group of franchise strategic partners, along with FAN corporate staff, insurance and fleet partners and valued suppliers convened on the historic Halifax waterfront for their annual regional meeting. This is the first time all three banners have come together at the regional level. “It’s exciting to have all of our brands under one roof for our annual meeting,” said Mark Weeks, General Manager of Fix Automotive Network Atlantic. “This gives us the perfect opportunity to continue to build our One Family with One Vision.”
This region has grown to 39 locations across Atlantic Canada, including all three brands. “Since our last meeting, we’ve welcomed five new Fix Auto shops and are so pleased to announce the Network’s first new build, standalone NOVUS Glass shop which will be opening very soon in Miramachi, New Brunswick,” commented Weeks. With this growth, the region has also added additional staff that will be dedicated to all three brands ensuring the owners of each are fully supported so they can continue to operate successful businesses. The FAN Atlantic corporate team has continued to focus on supplier and insurance partner relationships, training initiatives, shop performance and increased presence with Skills Canada; all to benefit the franchise strategic partners.
Steve Leal, President & CEO of Fix Automotive Network World joined the delegates to give an update on the network from a national and global perspective. “Globally, FAN is over 2,100 locations including all three brands,” said Leal. “The hard work of our shop owners in every region directly contributes to the success of Fix Automotive Network around the world, and our spirited team in Atlantic Canada plays a major role in that success. The feedback we receive from our network is immeasurable, which is why these regional meetings are so important to help us continue to deliver the operational and management tools shop owners require to succeed.”
“It’s hard to believe, but this year we are recognizing five Speedy Auto Service shops for achieving 40 years of service in their communities,” said Weeks. “This is a tremendous milestone and we are so grateful to have such a rich history in the FAN family.” The Fix Automotive Network success is attributed directly to the commitment of franchise strategic partners to delivering high quality repairs and amazing customer service.

Weeks concludes, “You can feel the enthusiasm and excitement for all the FAN brands both at the regional meeting and while visiting the locations. I am always impressed by our strategic partners’ ability, and willingness, to adapt in an industry that has changed more in the past 10 years than it has in the previous 30. I am very excited to see how our team continues to evolve as the needs of the automotive aftermarket services industry change.”
