FIX AUTO UK APPOINT FIX AUTO BENTHAM
Fix Auto UK have added an additional site to their Northern region, with the appointment of Grove Hill Garage of Bentham, Lancaster.
Operating as Fix Auto Bentham, the 12,000 sq ft repair centre is managed by David Wright, who has taken over the day-to-day running of the business. The business was formed by his parents, Phil and Nora, 40 years ago.
David said: “My parents started the business originally as a mechanical service and MOT centre. They then progressed by opening a purpose-built repair centre during the mid 1990’s.
“Our painter joined us about a year ago and questioned why we were not part of the network having worked previously at a Fix Auto UK site. I didn’t have an answer for him at the time but once I started looking into just what being part of Fix Auto UK brings to a business, I knew it would be a great move. We are ambitious but recognise if we are to continue to grow the business we will need that extra help and support that Fix Auto UK brings.”
Mark Hutchins, Head of Franchisee Development for Fix Auto UK said: “You have to congratulate David and his team for their determined efforts over the last 12 months or so. He first contacted me about joining in early 2018 and he asked just what was needed in order to qualify to be part of the network.
“He quietly went away and invested in all the right areas and in personnel. They have acquired their BSI kitemark and adopted a suitable management system, two key elements we require. David and his team have joined us with the right attributes, namely enthusiasm, the ambition to succeed and the ability to provide an industry-leading service.”
