Fix Auto Pershore joins the network

Fix Auto UK has welcomed Worcestershire-based Carsmetix to the network, with the bodyshop now operating as Fix Auto Pershore.

The latest addition to the Fix Auto UK network is owned by Robert Stern, the businessman behind the multi award-winning Robert Stern BMW dealerships. The bodyshop is managed by Ray Bower, and was formed nearly five years ago as a single 4,000sqft bodyshop. Following a £600,000 investment, the repair centre now spans 10,750sqft using three adjoining units.

The bodyshop currently repairs up to 55 vehicles a month, a figure that is expected to increase to more than 70 when a final investment programme is completed by the end of the autumn.  The business operates with a team of 12, including painter Gareth Oakes who is shortlisted for the bodyshop/GT Motive Estimate Paint Technician of the Year Award 2017.

Commenting on the decision to join the network, Ray Bower said, ‘We have successfully and rapidly managed to build the business up from scratch to the position where we are today. We believe that joining Fix Auto UK and being part of the network is that next step in our continual development and we are extremely excited about it. Our business has always been focused on customer service and fast turnaround times, so developing a dedicated Fix & Go express facility is certainly on our agenda.’

Ian Pugh of Fix Auto UK said, ‘The team at Fix Auto Pershore is hugely ambitious. The business is a perfect fit for us and will be yet another great asset to the network as we continue to build our national footprint.’
