Fix Network World announced that in 2020 the network added 60 new locations around the world. It also expanded the ProColor Collision brand to the United States.
Despite the pandemic, Fix Network World has steadily grown the footprint of its collision, glass and mechanical business which includes Fix Auto, ProColor Collision, NOVUS Glass, Speedy Auto Service and SRP. According to the company, most of Fix Network World’s growth took place in the second half of 2020.
“Our franchise development strategy is aimed at independent body shop owners who are keen to protect their businesses from the surrounding uncertainty,” said Steve Leal, President and CEO of Fix Network World Leal. “Fix Network World will continue to support such passionate business owners by equipping them with the latest tools and knowledge so they can maintain a robust operation.”
Calling 2021 “the year of sustainable growth”, Leal says that the extraordinary challenges in the “post COVID normal” have made the network even more determined to push ahead with franchise development, in order to create the largest global network of independent collision repair facilities.
The aftermarket industry is changing quickly and one of Fix Network World’s priorities is to ensure that its franchise partners are always supported with the most advanced automotive technology and training, along with the collaborative support structure of the network.
“As future automotive trends become a reality, we are committed to help our franchisees prepare for and benefit from what’s ahead,” added Leal. “From virtual classrooms training technicians in the latest auto repair processes, to teaching office staff in customer service and marketing processes – we are doing everything to ensure that our franchisees can operate at full potential.”
