FIX AUTO MITCHAM RELOCATE TO TRIPLE REPAIR CAPACITY
Fix Auto Mitcham has relocated to a new building on the same industrial estate to increase repair capacity.
Owner Daniel Lawes has moved his entire operation from his previous 5,500 sq ft repair centre that had to utilise two adjoining buildings into an impressive 16,500 sq ft building with a layout ideal for a seamless workflow.
The new South London site which features two spraybooths capable to repair high-sided LCVs and 30 workbays, has tripled the overall size of the operation compared to the previous building. Daniel also believes it will also increase his capacity to repair more than 45 vehicles a week once full work volumes return.
Daniel added that the additional space and extra facilities that they have gained not only futureproofs his business but will enable him to expand and recruit new team members in order to meet his business goals and ambitions.
Daniel said: “When I joined Fix Auto UK two years ago, I outlined my aspirations to develop my business and increase my capacity to repair vehicles. The help and support I’ve received so far has undoubtedly improved our productivity. I’ve believed for a while that the only thing holding us back were the restrictions we faced by our smaller, less efficient building so when another on our estate became available, I knew I had to secure it so the business could reach its full potential.”
Fix Auto UK’s Managing Director Ian Pugh, said: “We have another franchise partner who in a time of uncertainty is investing for the future. The belief that Daniel has in not only in his own business’s ability, but also the strength of the network, highlights the confidence that being part of a network like ours can give business owners. I wish Daniel and the team at Fix Auto Mitcham every success with their new repair centre.”
