Crawley Down Group's Crawley bodyshop is to join the Fix Auto network.
The Crawley Down Group is a multi-marque dealership for Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat and Nissan. The 7,000 sq ft centre holds full manufacturer approval status for all four manufacturers, along with a portfolio of insurance approvals and its full BSI Kitemark accreditation.
Eleven operatives and two spray booths - one capable of accommodating high-top, long wheelbase LCVs - ensures that the business has the capability to repair up to 50 vehicles a week.
Ian Pugh, managing director for Fix Auto UK, said: “Appointing a Fix Auto centre in Crawley is part of our strategic plan to complement our 14 repair bodyshops in and around the M25, and our operations along the south coast. Fix Auto Crawley will be able to provide support to our customers in both these regions.
“Personally, I feel being able to work with an accident repair centre with such a heritage is a major complement to our business, and to the entire network.”
Steve Yates, bodyshop manager for the Crawley Down Group, added: “We have watched Fix Auto UK’s growth and progression within the industry closely. While we have a unique history spanning more than 95 years, the industry is changing so rapidly that we feel it is time to become part of a larger organisation that can help us to introduce new thinking, processes and procedures to our operation. We firmly believe that joining Fix Auto UK, and receiving operational and marketing support will help us to fulfil our goals.”
