Revive marked a successful year, which has seen it land more top fleet management contracts as well as being the first smart repairer network to have ATA accredited technicians, at its conference last weekend.
Over 145 people were at the Stratford Manor Hotel on Saturday (March 3) to see certificates presented to the latest Revive technicians who had achieved their accreditations – both the QAA and the ATA - while company awards were presented for outstanding performances in sales, service and national accounts.
In the morning delegates heard presentations on technical updates, marketing, PR and business management and in the afternoon a product showcase gave suppliers the opportunity to demonstrate new products and techniques.
An awards dinner ended the conference on a high note when the awards were presented by Revive directors Mark Llewellyn and Terry Mullen and conference sponsors MKPE, AkzoNobel and 3M.
Managing director Mark Llewellyn said: “We’ve worked long and hard to raise the standards within the cosmetic smart repair industry and to establish the technique as a mainstream option for top quality small area paint work and wheel repair.
“The Cosmetic repair ATA has been finally launched and we’re busy putting all our own guys through the ATA process, once again leading the way within the industry.
“There’s no doubt times are tough, but our network of technicians continue to grow their businesses through delivering excellence in quality and service, working together as a team to maintain Revive’s reputation for fast efficient national account work.
“Everyone had a lot of fun at the conference – underlining our philosophy of enjoying everything we do.”
Revive specialises in repairing minor scuffs and scrapes to vehicle bodywork and alloy wheels. It has the largest network of smart repairers in the UK and is one of the few IMI accredited training centres in the country.
