Fix Auto Tewkesbury owner Kevin Dunlop has received the keys to a 5,500 sq ft unit to transform the former packaging distribution centre into what will be Fix Auto Hereford after joining the network exactly a year ago.

Due to the level of improvements needed to transform the building into a repair centre of excellence, Kevin has set a three-month deadline and intends to be fully operational by June 1.

When operational, Fix Auto Hereford will be managed by Nathan Cooper, the current assistant manager at Fix Auto Tewkesbury and will accommodate 11 work bays and will repair more than 40 cars a month with a team of five operatives.

The investment further strengthens the network’s position in the region and complements the existing sites that include Fix Auto Gloucester, Fix Auto Cheltenham, Fix Auto Pershore and Kevin’s established site, Fix Auto Tewkesbury.

“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,” said Kevin, “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, said: “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.

Fix Auto UK is part of a global franchised network of more than 925 bodyshops which carry out more than 150,000 body repairs each year for motor insurance companies, fleets, and retail customers.
