FIX AUTO WIGAN ANNOUNCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEXT FIX & GO EXPRESS REPAIR CENTRE ON THE NETWORK
Fifteen months after joining Fix Auto UK, the owners of Fix Auto Wigan are preparing to open the network’s latest Fix & Go express repair facility.
The franchisee is the second in six weeks to reveal a six figure investment, which will see a dedicated Fix & Go express repair centre opened in order to increase productivity.
Being built just yards away from Fix Auto Wigan’s main centre, the new facility will stay true to the “hub and spoke” ethos of the Fix & Go philosophy. The plan being, if all goes to schedule, repairs will be able to commence from the new site by the end of next month.
Managing Director Andy Sankey explained: “For a long time now and like so many repairers, we have found the smaller repairs all too often create problems with productivity and we have often believed in the advantages a dedicated express repair centre would bring to the business.
“When I saw this new building taking shape just yards away I stood back and thought it would be a perfect Fix & Go site. Fortunately, my fellow directors instantly recognised its potential too and here we are developing our own, brand new facility. To say it’s exciting is an understatement.”
The new 7,500 sq ft building will also house a dedicated alloy wheel refurbishment facility.
This news comes just six weeks after Fix Auto Malvern owner Andrew Ridley revealed a similar development neighbouring his established repair centre.
Ian Pugh, of Fix Auto UK, said: “Andy and the Pollitt family who own Fix Auto Wigan stated when they joined the network saying they had done so to fulfil their ambitions to take the business to a whole new level. Here we are 18 months on and they’ve stuck true to their words by investing heavily in the new express repair and the alloy wheel refurbishment facility.
“It’s extremely flattering when they say being part of Fix Auto UK is fuelling their progression but, in truth, it is they who are working tirelessly in making their business work and it is they who need congratulating. We are just here providing all the support, advice and help they are asking for.”
