Fix Auto Petersfield is the latest franchise partner within Fix Auto UK’s network to announce a major investment programme that will double the size of the business and its repair capacity.

The first of the two-phase project is now complete after owners James and Patricia Poste added two neighbouring 4,500 sq ft units to their existing established business. The initial alterations to the buildings have been designed primarily to achieve maximum efficiency and create a seamless workflow. A new reception area and additional offices have also been added during this first phase.

The second phase is ready to commence and will include the installation of additional equipment including a spraybooth for commercial vehicle repairs. Once the project is finished, Fix Auto Petersfield will feature 20 work-bays which will double its capacity and enable the repair of up to 200 vehicles a month.

“This has been several years in the making,” said James, “While we were initially planning to relocate to a larger site to meet our ever-increasing requirements, an opportunity arose when two buildings close to our existing site became vacant which really answered all of our needs.

“It has been an ambitious project for us and will be a significant investment but one which is critical for the business to continue to grow and develop.”

Fix Auto UK’s Managing Director Ian Pugh praised the move and said: “While many in the industry are in survival mode during these unprecedented times, James and Patricia are planning and investing heavily for the future and they’re clearly not letting anything stand in their way. 

“I know from speaking to them in the past that they are extremely ambitious, it’s an ambition now driven further because their two sons have joined their business. This significant investment not only increases our position to collectively repair more vehicles along the south coast but undoubtedly futureproofs their operation for the next generation and all the team.”
