Double celebration for Fix Auto Coalville bodyshop

Fix Auto Coalville has cause to celebrate after the Leicestershire business surpassed its 50th anniversary, marking half a century of service to the vehicle repair sector.

Founded by Roger Billett in the summer of 1974, the business, which has been owned and managed by his son Carl for the past 35 years, has grown from a humble single workshop to the 6,500-sqft operation it is today.

The milestone is not just testament to the longevity of the business but also the younger Billett’s ability to adapt to the ever-changing automotive sector having embraced state-of-the-art technologies to maintain the high standards set by his father.

Adding to the celebrations, Fix Auto Coalville received its 10th anniversary plaque from Fix Auto UK during the organisation’s National Conference last month.

Carl Billett of Fix Auto Coalville said:

“We are incredibly proud to reach this 50th anniversary milestone. It’s been an incredible journey, one of both lows and, thankfully, many highs. We owe our continued success to our dedicated team, loyal customers and the support of Fix Auto UK.”

Ian Pugh, managing director of Fix Auto UK, added:

“Celebrating 50 years is an extraordinary achievement, especially in business and particularly in this trade. It’s been an absolute privilege to have Carl and his team within the Fix Auto UK family for the past decade, it seems like only yesterday that we shook hands and welcomed him into the fold. Fix Auto Coalville’s unwavering commitment to delivering not only repairs of the highest quality but a high standard of customer service is a credit to all.”
