Fix Auto Sandhurst rises from the flames

Fix Auto Sandhurst has completed a major programme of investment and rebuilding after an arson attack in 2020.

Owner Martin Weller has spent an additional £150,000 on top of the insurance money received after arsonists destroyed his offices and part of his main workshop.

The repair centre now boasts a brand-new reception area, offices and storage facilities. Attention, too, has been turned to the 12,000 sqft workshop areas which have been totally refurbished with new flooring, efficient LED lighting and three new ramps.

Money has also been invested on a raft of new equipment including a Hunter wheel alignment and geometry system while an ADAS system is currently on order. Weller has doubled the number of courtesy cars on his fleet to 14 and added a large LCV to underpin his ability to repair high-sided vehicles thanks to a specially designed high-sided commercial spraybooth.

Meanwhile, experienced VDA James de Mille has been brought in as the new site manager working alongside general manager Adrian Brimicombe and Nina Ruprah, who has worked in the vehicle repair industry for more than a decade, has taken over the customer liaison manager’s role.

Weller said: “With so much building work needed, I just thought now was the perfect time to seriously invest in the business and I’m delighted to say, we’re now sitting in effectively a totally new repair centre. The building and facilities effectively future-proof us.”
