Fix Auto confirms German expansion

Fix Auto World is moving into the German collision repair market and has named Roy de Lange as head of business to lead operations.

The announcement comes after recent Fix Auto launches in Australia, South Africa and China.

David Lingham, head of business for Fix Auto World, said, ‘In 2016, Fix Auto underwent significant international growth. We have taken the time to assess opportunities for our network and brand, and we are now pleased to build on these learnings and successes to drive forward and bring the Fix Auto name to Germany.’

Roy, who starts his role on 1 February, has worked as a consultant across Europe, particularly in Germany, and gathered a wealth of knowledge in various spheres of the industry, namely at the retail, import and manufacturer levels.

He said, ‘I am thrilled to join Fix Auto’s team and to work with a network that is recognized around the world for its consistent innovation and growth. I am confident that the Fix Auto model and brand will bring much value to German consumers, insurers and repairers.’

David added, ‘Expanding our operations into Germany is an exciting venture for Fix Auto. We are looking forward leveraging Roy’s experience to explore growth opportunities and evaluate how Fix Auto can not only integrate, but become a key player in the German market. We are pleased to have Roy on board and welcome him to our growing team.’
