Gemini expands into North East

Following the recent acquisition of NCR Bodyshops in Swindon, Gemini Accident Repairs has announced it has now opened its 37th site.

Situated in Darlington, the 10,000 sqft facility marks the group’s expansion into the North East of the country.

The state-of-the-art build, it features optimal heat loss reduction through the Kingspan cladding system and future-proof technology such as a Todd Zeus infra-red electric oven, full LED lighting, destratification heating to reclaim ambient heat, and energy-efficient compressors.

Brett Wootton, acquisitions manager, said: “Darlington is a fantastic addition to the Gemini family. Its excellent transport infrastructure allows us to serve the North East, a new area for our strategy. The new build also enables us to future-proof our green footprint with the latest technology.”

Dave Sargeant, managing director, added:

“I am thrilled to welcome our 37th site. This expansion greatly strengthens our presence in the North and North East of England, marking our entry into a new territory for Gemini. With this move, we can provide even better support to our insurer partners. We are proud to welcome a dedicated team of skilled professionals, including our new Darlington Production Manager, Joshua Rudrum, who shares our commitment to delivering industry leading support and top-quality repairs to our clients and customers.”
