Fix Auto UK’s ability to provide an unrivalled service to West Midlands motorists once again stepped up another gear with yet another new Franchise Partner joining the network within the region.
Created by serial entrepreneur Deepak Kaler as Autobody Care Ltd in 2019, the 15,000 sq ft repair centre found in the heart of West Bromwich will now operate as Fix Auto Great Bridge, a move that provides further support to established sites Fix Auto Birmingham North, Fix Auto Birmingham East, Fix Auto Kings Norton, Fix Auto Walsall, Fix Auto Wednesbury, Fix Auto Oldbury and Fix Auto Moseley.
With the ink on the contract barely dry, 35-year-old Deepak instructed his builders to move in and transform what was originally a former oil refinery into a completely Fix Auto UK-branded business. Immediate work involved transforming what was a dour-looking reception into a bright and airy visitor area complete with branded colour-coded reception along with comprehensive Fix Auto UK branding.
In addition, plans are afoot to double the eight-strong workforce in order to meet Deepak’s goal of increasing his repair capacity to 30-plus vehicles a week.
“I am so excited about becoming part of Fix Auto UK,” said Deepak, “I’m an all or nothing kind of guy, and when I’m in I’m 100 per cent in.  I want myself, the business and everyone associated with it to be totally immersed in the network as soon as possible, which starts with casting aside our previous name and branding and making a statement with Fix Auto UK.”
He added: “I am extremely proud of where I’ve brought the business to in a relatively short space of time. We have built up a great reputation locally for delivering repairs to the highest standards. For the last 12 months or so we have been working on vehicles for a locally based vehicle manufacturer, specially ensuring their press fleet is perfect when loaned out to journalists and used in shows and events so, for me, you can’t really get a highly accolade than that.
“We have got to where we are with hard work and determination but, in truth, I realised some time ago that with the right help, guidance and support, we could take the business to another level of efficiency which is why I reached out to Fix Auto UK and asked to join and become part of the network.”
Fix Auto UK’s Managing Director Ian Pugh, said: “Deepak’s enthusiasm and commitment to the brand is infectious. He really has left no stone unturned and worked practically around the clock over recent weeks in order to transform his entire operation into a Fix Auto UK site we can all be proud.
“By his own admission he has got the business to where it is today purely by sheer hard work and the determination to succeed and that has to be applauded. Deepak realises, however, that in order to fulfil his, and the businesses, true potential, he needs to be part of a network that provides a support system. Fix Auto Great Bridge is yet another exciting appointment which further underpins our unrivalled service in the West Midlands.”
