Ten shops in ten months

With Fix Auto coming up for its first birthday in Australia, it is a great time to reflect on just how far Fix Auto Australia has come since October 2016. Having acquired our first ten pioneers, Fix Auto Australia is seeking more independent repairers who are committed to their future, are looking to embrace change and become a part of the world’s fastest growing franchise bodyshop network. The announcement that Fix Auto globally has acquired NOVUS Glass has certainly created interest in the Australian market. Last month, Fix Auto Australia welcomed its latest franchisee, Fix Auto Welshpool in WA, into the family. Like many others, Mark Zeyad Damer from Welshpool can see that Fix Auto is providing another option to repairers across Australia and the rest of the world whilst still retaining his ownership.

Mark states, “Fix Auto is leading the world of collision repair by developing new ideas with suppliers and customers and assisting franchisees in creating a more successful environment within their own business but further, providing them a vision for the future in an industry that is consolidating and changing rapidly.” By delivering operational support and consistency, brand unity and an aligned goal of working together efficiently and fairly, Fix Auto franchisees are paving the way as the repairers of the future. With the aim to be constantly driving forward, Fix Auto Australia is leading the Fix Auto nations around the globe by constantly innovating within the network and providing marketing and advertising to the repairer network like they have never had before.

The recently introduced Youth Initiative Program was launched earlier in the year and had a great reception from key industry stakeholders. Jack Parkinson, Youth Program Leader for Fix Auto said: “We didn’t expect such an instant response from our franchisees, but then again, they joined Fix Auto for change and we are delivering on that. I see our franchisees as industry leaders.”

With so much activity in the network, things aren’t slowing down. As the network gets bigger and better, so do the network’s capabilities. Head of Business, Terry Feehan, says: “Fix Auto has certainly sparked a lot of interest in the Australian industry in less than one year and I know we are being ‘watched’ by interested repairers, potential suppliers, work providers and competitors. All I ask of the Australian collision repairers is, stop peeking at us and come forward and ask some questions of us. That is the only way you will discover if you suit Fix Auto and if Fix Auto suits you. I can guarantee you that you will get facts and no fiction.”
