Fix Auto – the world’s largest network of independent repairers has added another NSW based shop, their 2nd of the year. Fix Auto Macarthur, formerly known as AAA Malibu Paint & Panel based in Ingleburn, is the latest repairer to join Australia’s leading independent repair network.
The business has been in operation since 2000 and was purchased by Aaron Samphier in 2016, it was then relocated to a new facility in 2019. The new facility provided the business with the much-needed space to facilitate Aarons aggressive growth plans as well as enabling an entire upgrading of tools, technology and resources to ensure they could deliver the highest levels of quality and service whilst managing this additional volume.
Commenting on this latest partnership in NSW Stuart Faid, VP of Fix Auto for Asia and head of the Australian business said: “Aaron’s facility is outstanding. He has secured a great location with significant scale to grow his business and has spared no expense with equipping his people with all the tools and technology they need. Aaron has a passion for his business and a vision for continued growth, we look forward to achieving that together.”
When asked what drove his decision to join Fix Auto, Aaron explained: “I realised my shop needed to be a part of something bigger. I wanted to continue to own my business and stay in control of it, but recognised that as a single shop in a consolidating market I needed to find a way of staying relevant. Fix Auto is an international brand with over 800 locations worldwide with access to industry best practices, systems and processes to increase profitability and efficiencies, it also provides opportunities with potential work providers. Most importantly, they have been nothing but supportive of my vision and the direction I want to take the business, in fact I am confident that this partnership will make that vision entirely possible”.
Scott Holden, state general manager for NSW and QLD for Fix Auto added “I am very excited about the potential for Fix Auto Macarthur. When selecting partners for our network it is vital that they have the type of attitude that Aaron demonstrates day in, day out with his team and his customers. I look forward to building on Aaron’s success and working with the business to achieve its full potential”.
