The group has appointed a new operations director, Simon Lucas, to oversee Kwik-Fit Mobile and has moved the management of Kwik-Fit Mobile into the fleet division of Kwik-Fit to cope with demand.
Mike Wise, who co-ordinates Kwik-Fit’s UK fast-fit activities, said: ‘The new structure will give Kwik-Fit Mobile a greater focus on the corporate market.
‘Demand from businesses, large and small, for mobile fast-fit services is rising rapidly as companies and drivers alike search for maximum convenience and minimum vehicle downtime.’
Kwik-Fit currently operates a 200-vehicle fleet of mobile units and has expanded the fleet size to expand as more fleet customers begin using mobile services.
The AA recently announced the closure of its loss-making mobile tyre fitting business used by UK fleets. AA Tyre Fit provided national mobile tyre fitting through a fleet of 130 vehicles but the business has now ceased trading. (Fleet NewsNet, October 14).
