FIX AUTO UK’S SIGNIFICANT MOVE TO ENSURE COMPLETE BRAND PRESENCE IN THE MIDLANDS
Fix Auto UK has made another major step forward in its bid to ensure the network has complete brand presence throughout the Midlands with the appointment of Four Ways Accident Repair Centre in Atherstone.
The repairer, who will operate as Fix Auto Atherstone, strategically fills a void in the region for the network between Fix Auto UK repair centres in Birmingham, Lichfield, Coalville, Coventry and Leicester. Significantly, the repairer is perfectly positioned to meet the demands made by motorists living in the North Warwickshire region encompassing the prominent towns of Coleshill, Nuneaton and the east region of Tamworth.
Owned by local entrepreneur Garry Wall and managed by Martin Scott, the business joins the network following a period of investment which commenced with relocating to new premises and installing a new, efficient, spraybooth, a raft of technical equipment, IT, staff training and additional recruitment.
However, by Garry’s own admission, both he and Martin harbour ambitions to grow and develop into a multi-site operation.
“We have a small team of highly skilled individuals who are the backbone behind the business,” said Garry, “they’ve ensured we have built up an enviable reputation for repairing cars to the highest standards. Until now, we have mainly served accident management companies and, of course, we pick up work via word of mouth. We are ambitious and we know the business has potential to grow and develop, which is why we have joined Fix Auto UK to turn that ambition into reality.”
Martin added: “We recognised some time ago that we could only take the business so far on our own and that we need industry help and guidance if we are to reach our potential. Joining Fix Auto UK will help accelerate our development. Being part of a network has to be the future for any repairer.”
“Prior to deciding to approach Fix Auto UK we did our homework by independently speaking to several existing bodyshop owners and discovered just what it meant to be part of the network and that it was all about working together for the greater good of the network. As we see it, we are at the start of what will be an exciting journey and that ambition lies with further developing our business here and possibly opening up sister sites in neighbouring areas.”
Ian Pugh, Managing Director of Fix Auto UK, said: “Right from the get go Garry and Martin have embraced every conversation we’ve had with enthusiasm and excitement. Strategically, Fix Auto Atherstone is yet another key appointment for us as it firmly cements our brand presence in the Midlands. I am sure they are going to be yet another superb addition to the network and I look forward to watching their continual development.”
