Solus expands network into Wales

Solus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of insurer Aviva, has opened its latest site in Newport, South Wales.

The new 23,000 sqft centre is the first Solus site in Wales and will create more than 30 jobs, ranging from repair consultants and technicians to customer care.

Solus, which repairs and manages the loss of vehicles after a driving accident or incident, manages a third of Aviva’s overall motor damage claims. There are now 22 Solus sites across the UK, with other recent locations including Bolton, Castleford, and Nottingham.

Simon Smith, managing director, said: “We are extremely proud to open our newest branch here in Newport, the first site in Wales. By opening this centre, we can continue delivering great outcomes for our customers, helping them to get back behind the wheel as quickly and as safely as possible.”
