Fix Auto moves forward

Fix Auto UK has announced that Forward Motors Ltd of Malvern has joined its network and will now operate as Fix Auto Malvern.

The 16,000sqft, Kitemark-accredited bodyshop is situated on Spring Lane North, in the shadows of the imposing Malvern Hills, and is owned and managed by Andrew Ridley and his wife Pamela.

A team of 12 productives, assisted by two customer service personnel, ensure more than 120 vehicles a month are repaired by the bodyshop, which holds no fewer than 11 vehicle manufacturer approvals including VW Group, Honda, Volvo, Mazda, Kia, Hyundai, Toyota and Lexus.

Commenting on his decision to join the Fix Auto Network, Andrew Ridley said, ‘The prospect of being part of a large network of bodyshops, each independently owned, really appeals to me. I firmly believe in learning from other businesses and, from what I can see, Fix Auto UK provides us with an opportunity to do just that.’

Andrew, a keen motorbike trial rider, added, ‘I have been following Fix Auto UK’s development within our industry closely, and have been impressed with the company’s achievements.  Personally, I believe that the more you put in, the more you are rewarded, and so I really am looking forward to being part of the Fix Auto UK network and forging close working relationships with other driven bodyshop owners.’

Ian Pugh, of Fix Auto UK, said, ‘Geographically, Fix Auto Malvern is another important development for our network as we enhance our capacity and coverage. Andrew runs an extremely efficient Bodyshop and I am sure he’ll bring a huge amount of value to the network.’
