Fix Auto Tewkesbury owner acquires second site

Fix Auto Tewkesbury owner Kevin Dunlop will open a second facility in Hereford after acquiring a new 55,000 sqft former packaging distribution centre.

Work is now underway to transform the facility into an 11-bay bodyshop with capacity to handle upwards of 40 cars a month.

Assistant Manager at Fix Auto Tewkesbury Nathan Cooper will manage the site, which will employ five technicians.

Dunlop said: “When I joined Fix Auto UK in February last year, I stated I was ambitious and wanted to develop a second and possibly third site and here I am with the keys to a second building exactly one year on. To say it’s exciting is an understatement.”

Mark Hutchins, Operations Director for Fix Auto UK, added: “It’s extremely fulfilling to see a new franchise partner flourish. Prior to joining us Kevin had built up an unviable reputation for delivering first class repairs and a first-class service since starting his business in 2015. Just like so many before him, he just needed that crucial business support and guidance we’re able to provide to help him fulfil his ambitions.”
