FIX AUTO STEVENAGE REACHES ITS 10 YEAR MILESTONE WITH THE FIX AUTO UK NETWORK
Fix Auto Stevenage has joined the ever-increasing group of franchisees to have celebrated a decade as part of the Fix Auto UK network.
Fix Auto UK’s Ian Pugh recently presented Terry Gilbert, the Owner of Fix Auto Stevenage, with a celebratory plaque at Fix Auto UK’s Head Office.
Terry said: “Like so many, we joined Fix Auto UK wanting to be part of something bigger and something better. I just loved the ethos of it all; working together, helping each other and being part of a family for the greater good of our businesses and the industry. Today we have all that and far more besides. I know I speak for many when I say joining the network was possibly one of, if not the smartest move I could have made.”
Over the last decade Fix Auto Stevenage has grown beyond all recognition from the business that joined in 2009. Significant achievements include relocating to a state-of-the-art 12,000 sq ft repair centre that brought the operation under one roof to increase productivity. The repairer has also been awarded numerous vehicle manufacturer approvals including being the first independent repairer to receive McLaren’s approval.
Terry added: “We have grown from strength-to-strength, not just as an individual business, but as the entire network and I feel privileged to be part of it.”
Ian said: “Fix Auto UK’s successes are only possible thanks to those franchisees like Terry who adopted and adhered to our ethos all those years ago before we became industry leaders. Fix Auto Stevenage is a fantastic site and Terry and his team are highly regarded family members in Fix Auto UK, particularly with their expertise in gaining manufacturer approvals and with Terry’s contribution as chairperson of our National Leadership Team. I look forward to hearing their next success stories over the next 10 years!”
