A Fix Auto franchise business is to open its fourth repair centre in Yorkshire after receiving the keys to a ten,000 sq ft constructing near the M1 motorway with seamless access and ample secure parking.
Fix Auto Leeds South will open by mid-September and can complement the Fix Auto Leeds North repair centre which was designed and built to the specification of the franchisees Stephen and Sam Smith (pictured) 18 months ago. The Smiths also operate Fix Auto Keighley and Fix Auto Bradford South.
Explaining the move, Sam said: “It truly is all about progression. While our previous Leeds South site served us well, productivity and efficiency were restricted by the limited parking there. Access to the constructing wasn’t the very best either. In summary, we simply outgrew it.
“Our latest site will echo our Leeds North operation with an open plan bodyshop, loads of automobile parking and quick access which is able to enable us to operate a far greater work-flow processes. It is usually near the M1 with easy and fluid access out and in of the positioning.”
Sam added: “It’s yet one more major investment for the business but one we feel is essential to keep up the high level of service to our customers. When fully operational I consider our productivity will improve by greater than 100 per cent over our former site.”
Ian Pugh, managing director for Fix Auto UK, commented: “That is yet one more exciting development for Stephen and Sam and for the network. They became the primary franchise partners to design and construct a bespoke site and have really benefitted from its seamless productivity. They’re striving to construct a portfolio of high-performing bodyshops which must be congratulated.”
