Fix Auto Malvern has become the latest franchisee in the network to expand and open a Fix & Go express repair facility.
Owner Andrew Ridley has bought a 6,000 sq ft business unit neighbouring his existing 16,000 sq ft traditional bodyshop, transforming it into an express repair centre, complete with a three-way moveable spraybooth. Additionally, the facility has the ability to refurbish alloy wheels.
He said: “When I joined Fix Auto three years ago I said I’d done so with the ambition to further develop my business - here I am doing just that.
Buying the building and transforming it into an express repair centre and alloy wheel refurbishment facility has been a significant investment but one I am sure I wouldn’t have made had I not been part of the network.”
Heavy structural repairs will continue to be completed in the existing bodyshop and the lesser, more cosmetic repairs will be triaged to the new site. The investment is set to greatly improve Fix Auto Malvern’s repair capacity.
Ian Pugh, director of Fix Auto UK, said: “Investing in a business is a bold move for any owner so you have to congratulate Andrew and his team for what they have achieved since joining the network three years ago.
"Clearly this investment will elevate Fix Auto Malvern, enabling them to provide two key services for customers in alloy wheel refurbishment and express repairs.”
