Beeston joins AW family

AW Repair Group’s newest site opened its doors on Monday. Based on Beeston Business Park, three miles from Nottingham city centre and within 20 minutes of the M1, the site joins existing AW bodyshops in Sleaford, Denaby, Newark and Chesterfield.

Managing director Andrew Walsh said, ‘We have transformed this empty shell into a fully functional bodyshop in just three months. The site looks absolutely superb and we have further improved on bodyshop design and layout for maximum efficiency.’

The 13,300 sqft purposely designed bodyshop enjoys the unique perpendicular skate and rail system from Junair which creates a super-speed paint and prep area. With a double length full downdraught spraybooth easily accommodating two vehicles or one vehicle and off car panels, different colours can be painted simultaneously without cross contamination.

Together these facilitate a faster and more efficient throughput of vehicles enabling between 12 and 14 vehicles to be painted each day.

The open plan reception and offices feature the company’s blue and orange corporate identity, LED lighting throughout and branding to mirror AW Repair Group’s four other sites.

General manager of the site James Dunn added, ‘I have seen this building transform and it’s all credit to Andrew who has again brought in another AW Bodyshop on schedule. We’ve a very experienced hand-picked team here at Beeston with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

‘We are looking forward to delivering the AW customer experience with our unique philosophy; we move aside traditional bodyshop processes for a new way of delivering a great customer service experience.’

The branch is expected to achieve its BSI status next month.
