Matlock joins Fix network
The owners of Fix Auto UK’s newest repairer, Derbyshire-based Lant Lane Ltd have invested heavily in their facilities to ensure it instantly met the network’s brand standards.
Now operating as Fix Auto Matlock the business, managed by Philip Maycock and his brothers Colin and Mathew, has built a new reception complex designed to complement Fix Auto’s branding, created a tarmacked customer collection area and taken the organisation’s outdoor signage to a new level.
While completing the new front of house facilities was a priority, further investment has been made in the bodyshop area, particularly as the Matlock based firm are also specialists in commercial vehicle repairs and paintwork, blast cleaning, surface preparation and coating systems for a range of industries.
David Owen, Fix Auto UK’s brand integration manager, said, ‘We have been talking to Philip and his family in the hope they would join the network for several months. While the bodyshop and repair facilities were excellent, by their own admission they felt the need to upgrade their facilities and standards to meet customer demands.
‘I’m pleased to say it’s been worth the wait. The centre is excellent. They have left no stone unturned in transforming the site into what is now an exemplary Fix Auto UK repair centre.’
Philip said, ‘While we have been steadily progressing the business over the last 20 years, one of our reasons to join Fix Auto UK is to raise our professionalism. The simplest and most effective solution was to start afresh and that is exactly we have done. I am pleased everyone is delighted with the result.’
