FMG Repair Services opens new bodyshop in Chadderton

FMG Repair Services has opened the doors of another new state-of-the-art accident repair centre. The new bodyshop in Chadderton, Greater Manchester, has been strategically located to strengthen the company’s repair capacity in an area of high demand as well as bring a welcome jobs boost, as the company continues its commitment to investing in sustainable modern automotive repair.

With easy access to the M60 and M62 motorways, the new site has undergone an extensive development programme over the past six months to suit FMG Repair Services’ specific blueprint. At 27,000 sqft, the bodyshop has 35 repair bays, each brand new, pristine clean and installed with high quality equipment and the latest technology to repair a large range of vehicle types including EV, hybrid and LCVs.

Cosmetic aluminium repair is available at present and specific bays have been allocated for structural aluminium repair in the near future.
