FIX AUTO PENZANCE BECOMES THE LATEST FRANCHISEE TO REVEAL A MAJOR INVESTMENT PROGRAMME
Fix Auto Penzance has announced a major investment programme that will see Fix Auto UK’s most southerly repair centre double in size.
Owner Stuart Cameron has secured an area of land adjoining his existing facilities and work has already commenced on creating additional car parking to immediately increase workflow and productivity.
A second phase will see the development of his existing repair centre which was named Bodyshop Magazine’s Small Bodyshop of the Year 2017. The project will create an additional six work bays while plans are also in place to create an express repair facility on land adjacent to the bodyshop, which the business already uses to securely store vehicles.
The announcement follows a series of investment programmes by Fix Auto franchisees over the last 12 months including the creation of Fix Auto Inverness and Fix Auto Perth in Scotland by the O’Hare and Paton families respectively. There have also been the developments of Fix Auto Fix & Go Rochdale and Fix Auto Fix & Go Loughborough, the expansion of Fix Auto Barnsley, the multi-million-pound re-location of Fix Auto Croydon and Fix Auto Wrexham to name but a few.
“It’s been a long process,” said Stuart, “there is simply no industrial land left to develop or move onto in West Cornwall, I’ve spent years looking. Fortunately, we managed to persuade our neighbouring landowner to sell but that was in the summer of 2016, it’s taken until now to tie up the loose ends and gain access to start developing it. We are finally there and making progress.”
“The additional space, which will more than double our existing footprint, will immediately help us to improve our workflow and increase our capacity. Long term, it will also provide the space needed to further develop the centre.”
