Fix Auto Gloucester joins network

Fix Auto UK’s footprint to repair in the South West has been further enhanced with the appointment of Ultimate Accident Repair, which will now operate as Fix Auto Gloucester.

Owned by Aron Matthews, the 8,000 sqft bodyshop operates 12 work bays, two external spraybooths and an oversized commercial booth inside the unit.

The news comes three months after the network added Fix Auto Tewkesbury to its portfolio and which sits alongside Fix Auto Cheltenham, Fix Auto Malvern, Fix Auto Pershore, Fix Auto Bristol North and Fix Auto Bristol South and stretching as far south as Fix Auto Mid Devon, Fix Auto Newton Abbot, Fix Auto Paignton, Fix Auto Yeovil and Fix Auto Devon.

Matthews said: “We’ve operated as a sole independent repairer since I bought the business in April 2017, and while we continue to go from strength-to-strength, like so many who have joined the network before me, I am super ambitious and I feel to really fulfil those ambitions I needed to be part of a network.

“The network has a great reputation for supporting businesses and taking them to that next level so, to me, becoming Fix Auto Gloucester was the obvious next move.”

Ian Pugh, managing director for Fix Auto UK, said: “Aron and his team run a super ambitious repair centre that will add that strength in depth to the network. I’ve said this many times over the years, repairing cars to the highest standards is really a given for a ’shop like Aron’s that is BSI approved, business owners need that extra element of support and guidance if they want to take their bodyshop to another level and we have a proven track record of doing just that. This is another exciting addition to the network and I look forward to seeing their progression.”
