AW Repair Group’s five-star show

AW Repair Group is going from strength to strength and will open its fifth site in early January.

Based in Beeston within easy reach of the M1, AW Notts Central is a purpose-designed 12,500sqft site that will expand the group’s coverage west.

Founder and managing director Andrew Walsh said, ‘While we are not adverse to acquisitions, our business model and organic growth has been successful in establishing new sites where the AW ethos takes flight immediately.

‘Many of the personnel are already working within the business at other sites learning our processes and procedures in readiness for the January opening of AW Nottingham Central.

‘We have followed demand and the support of existing work partners who are seeking quality bodyshop space in this area which neatly overlaps the radius covered by our Newark and Markham Vale branches. Markham Vale, which opened only 20 months ago, is just 40 minutes further north along the M1 and Newark just 40 minutes to the south.’

General manager of the group’s Newark site, James Dunn, will be taking the reigns at Beeston whilst continuing to oversee his current assistant Dan Gwyther who will manage the day to day operations at Newark.

James said, ‘I have seen first-hand how AW Repair Group develops a culture where individuals are encouraged to move through the ranks and I know Dan is eager to take on his new challenge too.’

The new site, which joins Markham Vale (Derbs), Newark (South Notts), Denaby (South Yorkshire) and Sleaford (Lincolnshire), will also use Junair products, including a 10m double booth with end loading skate and rail system for even faster throughput, Blackhawk pulling equipment and Minden Dust Extraction.
