Activate Accident Repair opens Warrington centre

Activate Accident Repair has opened a new body shop in Warrington, giving it a total of four sites.

The new repair centre, which is the business’ largest, is part of a £15 million expansion plan.

Victoria Turner, CEO of Activate Accident Repair, said: “We plan to open 15 new repair centres in quick succession over the next 12 months, and have a thorough process in place to ensure that each site meets our exceptionally high operating standards.

“For me it’s important that, as well as investing in the best technology, we also invest in our people, with great on‐site facilities, training and support. We’ve gradually built up the volume of vehicle repairs at Warrington to allow time for the new team to complete a full induction programme focused on service, efficiency and safety.

“The centre is now fully operational and ready to deliver fast, high‐quality repairs for its customers.”

At 24,000 sq ft, the Warrington body shop has the capacity to repair up to 18 vehicles a day. It is purpose‐built and equipped with the latest technology, including the ability to repair structural composite materials, all safety features, EVs and HEVs.

Activate Accident Repair is part of Activate Group, a group of companies that includes Motor Repair Network, sopp+sopp and Activate Parts.

The Group’s own chain of body shops works alongside its approved network of 200 repairers to service hundreds of thousands of claims a year for its fleet and insurance clients.

The opening of the new repair centre in Warrington is part of an ambitious growth plan that will see Activate Accident Repair open state‐of‐the‐art body shops across the UK in urban areas where customers need them most.
