Baldwins’ owner sells business
Steve Warner, owner of Baldwins Repair Group, has announced that he has sold the business to single-investor, Richard Steer.
Richard brings a wealth of experience, industry knowledge and expertise with him having previously grown and developed successful businesses prior to this purchase. He will join the accident repairer as owner and managing director on 1 August, 2018.
Peter Randhawa will continue his role of group general manager at Baldwins Repair Group and oversee operations at all repair centres in Aylesbury, Corby, Leicester and Stratford-upon-Avon, as well as the build of the new London site.
During his ownership, Steve developed the business alongside Peter. The sites have
grown from one to five, manufacturer, insurer and network approvals have increased plus the business has become more involved in key initiatives high on the industry’s agenda, such as apprenticeships and electric vehicles.
Steve Warner said, ‘Following 15 very positive years at Baldwins, I have decided that it is time for me to take a step back and focus on other projects and new challenges. I can see the company’s future going from strength to strength with Richard – he has a great deal of experience and I believe he is the right man for the job. I want to thank the team for all their hard work over the years and I wish them every success for the future.’
