Fix Auto scores hat-trick at #BE2017

Fix Auto UK is celebrating again after collecting three awards during the 2017 bodyshop Awards, held on Friday night at Birmingham’s Hilton Metropole Hotel.

Reflecting its investment in an innovative Online Learning Platform, along with its Performance in Estimating (PIE) and Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) programmes, Fix Auto was presented with the 2017 Training Provider of the Year award.

The success continued with Fix Auto Penzance being named as the Small Bodyshop of the Year, while Fix Auto Rochdale’s commercial vehicle repair division – Commercial Contract Engineers – took home the CV Bodyshop of the Year prize.

The second bodyshop Awards hat-trick in a row takes the number achieved by the Fix Auto UK network during 2017 to nine, with a total of 27 major industry awards won since 2013.

On collecting the Training Provider of the Year Award, Fix Auto UK’s Head of Marketing Tom Hadfield said, ‘I am absolutely over the moon and delighted. This award is testament to all our franchisees who have pioneered and embraced the programmes, and our team who have worked tirelessly to ensure the learnings are put into practice. Thank you so very much for all your hard work in making our training programme the success it is today.’

Bodyshop Magazine editor Mark Hadaway said, ‘Although Bodyshop Magazine has no say in who wins the awards, the standard of nominations is always extremely high. All the award winners will have gone through rigorous independent assessments and to be successful they must really stand out in the eyes of the independent panel of judges. We would like to congratulate Fix Auto UK for its success in the Education and Training Provider of the Year category. Skills is an acute issue impacting the entire industry, and the more companies that take a proactive approach to tackling it head on, the better off we will all be.’
