Symach strengthens Australian leadership team

Symach has named Mark Cunningham as general manager in Australia.

His more than 20 years-experience in motor trade, working with some of the largest vehicle repairers in Australia and Ireland has led him to collaborate with Symach in the expansion of the brand in Australia.

The appointment coincides with Symach’s launch of its commercial structure in Australia and makes Symach’s FixLine technology and processes available to workshops across the country. Symach’s Fixline has been designed to reduce cycle times, improve quality and increase throughput and profitability with existing floor space.

Cunningham said: “The motor industry gives lots of different options to suit various skill sets and always had a lot of appeal to me. Once I completed my trade certificates, I established a large part of my skill set is to listening and assisting customers and teams in panel shops, wherever I have been in my career.”

He continued: “We hold some of the best future tradesmen and women as proven by the World Skills Competition recently. Along with clever business owners taking a keen look towards improved processes, equipment and forward-thinking technology we are in a good spot which can also get better.”

Osvaldo Bergaglio, Symach’s owner and president said: “With Mark joining Symach we expect to introduce our FixLine equipment and process to more workshops across Australia. This is the first step to reinforce our commitment to the Australian market in providing the solutions bodyshops need to grow their business profitably.”
