CLEMENS BROTHERS EMBARK ON FIX AUTO SITE NUMBER FOUR
Brothers Terry and Chris Clemens, who have developed three Fix Auto UK repair centres along the south coast of England, have revealed plans to open a fourth.
The duo intend to have what will operate as Fix Auto Yeovil open for business by the end of August after receiving the keys this week to a 5,500 sq ft industrial unit they have bought in the centre of the Somerset town.
Terry and Chris established Fix Auto Portsmouth over a decade ago. Two years after joining Fix Auto UK in 2014 they transformed a disused industrial unit in New Milton and opened Fix Auto Bournemouth and then followed that by opening their third site, Fix Auto Isle of Wight, in 2018.
As with their previous sites, the duo will personally take over the development. When fully operational, Fix Auto Yeovil will have the capacity to match Portsmouth and Bournemouth which, when repair volumes return to normality, will surpass 45 vehicles a week.
“We have made no secret of our plans to continue expanding,” said Terry, “and while some people may believe we’re being a little hasty expanding further during what’s been a challenging time for many due to Covid and subsequent reductions in volume, we have viewed this as a great business opportunity for us.
“Yeovil is one of the few areas here in the south of England where Fix Auto UK have no presence, but not anymore! We have found ourselves a superb unit perfectly positioned for easy and fluid access. Just like Portsmouth, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight, it’s a great opportunity for us to continue our growth strategy across the South of England.
