Activate Accident Repair opens flagship bodyshop

Activate Accident Repair has opened the doors to its new flagship bodyshop in Warrington.

The new repair centre – based on Europa Boulevard – takes the company’s bodyshop portfolio to four which work alongside its approved network of 200 repairers to service claims for its fleet and insurance clients.

It is the business’ largest repair centre to date. At 24,000sqft, it has the capacity to repair up to 18 vehicles a day and is equipped with the latest technology to repair structural composite materials, all safety features, EVs and HEVs.

The opening is part of a £15million expansion plan that will see Activate Accident Repair open further centres in urban areas where it says customers need them most.

Victoria Turner, CEO of Activate Accident Repair, said: “We plan to open 15 new repair centres across the UK over the next 12 months, and have a thorough process in place to ensure that each site meets our exceptionally high operating standards.

“For me it’s important that, as well as investing in the best technology, we also invest in our people, with great on-site facilities, training and support. We’ve gradually built up the volume of vehicle repairs at Warrington to allow time for the new team to complete a full induction programme focused on service, efficiency, and safety.

“The centre is now fully operational and ready to deliver fast, high-quality repairs for its customers.”

Activate Accident Repair is part of Activate Group Ltd, a group of companies that includes Motor Repair Network, sopp+sopp and Activate Parts.
