Fix Auto UK is getting closer to achieving its goal to own or part own up to six accident repair centres by the end of the year after acquiring two additional bodyshops.

The network has maintained its presence in south Yorkshire by buying Fix Auto Barnsley and also in West Sussex by purchasing Fix Auto Crawley from the Crawley Down Group.

This latest announcement complements Fix Auto UK’s previous acquisitions including taking a majority share in Fix Auto Goole and buying Daventry Panel Craft Ltd, which has now been transformed into Fix Auto Daventry. In July, Fix Auto UK also bought Ian Hughes Motor Body Repair Centre which now operates as Fix Auto Colwyn Bay.

The Fix Auto UK network currently stands at 107 fully branded repair centres.

Speaking about the latest additions to the Fix Auto UK ownership model, Ian Pugh said: “When I first joined Fix Auto UK in 2011, I said I wanted to take our own path in this industry and not follow what others have done. Our ownership model is a perfect example of this. As a business we continue to execute our development strategy using these acquisitions to underpin our growth. It’s now working to the benefit of those franchisees who want to step away from their businesses and ensures we have consistency, as well as quality in key geographical areas for our partners.”

“Fix Auto Crawley has been a significant franchisee since joining the network five years ago. The business of repairing vehicles on its site has been running for more than 100 years and I’m delighted to have secured it. When we announced our plans to develop our own group of repair centres we set a goal of having up to six sites by the end of 2019, I am delighted to say we are still on course to achieve that.”

Nick Caunter, Crawley Down Group Managing Director added: “In Fix Auto UK we have an operation with the same values of honesty and trust, these core values are aligned perfectly with our own. Our staff have served us so well so, for us it has always been paramount that we secure their future. With Fix Auto UK we have found the perfect home for our repair centre. We can bow out of the business knowing it is in the very best of hands.”
