Fix Auto UK welcomes Telford repairer

Fix Auto UK has further cemented its position within the West Midlands with the appointment of Fix Auto Telford.

The new appointment ensures the network now has 18 fully branded repair centres in the region.

Spanning more than 15,000 sqft, the repair centre sits within the Furrows portfolio of car sales, servicing and repair centres, a company that has a rich history in the region since 1918.

It boasts 24 work bays partitioned into two areas, three spraybooths and a team of eight productives with a recruitment drive in process to boost numbers further.

To coincide with joining the network, a major programme of investment is being planned which will see the replacement of the booths, re-designing the production layout and a raft of new equipment and all designed to improve productivity and efficiency.

Group operations manager Alan Clavin said: “We have built up a fine reputation locally as one of the region’s leading repairers but we feel we have a lot more potential particularly when you consider our company’s true expertise really lies within vehicle sales. Joining Fix Auto UK will bring the industry expertise and experience we covet that will undoubtedly help elevate our services and raise our productivity to a whole new level.”

Ian Pugh, managing director for Fix Auto UK, said: “We are always striving to bolster our network and what better than to have arguably Shropshire’s leading vehicle sales and servicing operations join us. A company, I’ll hasten to add, that has been established for well over 100 years which is a remarkable feat and unique for our industry.”
