Fix Auto invests in Goole
Fix Auto UK has declared its intent to the vehicle repair industry after investing directly in one of its own franchisees.
In what could be the first of many similar investments, the organisation has acquired a majority share of Fix Auto Goole and in doing so the UK operation has taken ownership of its own repair centre.
The six-figure capital sum will be invested directly back into the business which will continue to be managed by founders, husband and wife duo Andy and Lisa Kirk. The move accelerates their ambitious business plans to further grow and develop the established centre.
Fix Auto UK’s Ian Pugh said, ‘Fundamentally, Fix Auto UK helps and guides our franchisees. By taking a majority share in Fix Auto Goole we are taking our whole offering to new level never experienced before by the network.’
Andy said, ‘While Lisa and I believed joining Fix Auto UK would be a great move for our business when we joined 12 months ago, we never envisaged we would become partners.
‘We have huge plans for the business and have total belief in not only our own drive and ambition, but that of the team around us. With Fix Auto UK’s investment and the team as partners, we can move the business forward. It’s hugely exciting.’
