Fix Auto in Niagara

According to Collision Repair Magazine, Fix Auto World held its first Fix Automotive Network (FAN) Conference in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Fix Auto has stretched out of the UK to create a more global presence. ‘We have a vision that goes beyond borders. We are not bound by country, but by our mission,’ said Steve Leal, president and chief executive officer, Fix Auto World. ‘Our goal is to become a global brand, not limited to geography.’

Held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, the conference theme of ‘One Family, One Vision,’ had more than 300 attendees representing 200 franchisees. This included delegates from China Automobile Maintenance Industry Association (CAMRA).

Over the course of the two-day conference delegates listened to speakers including David Chilton and Patrick Leroux. AIA president Jean-Francois Champagne was also present to welcome the attendees and give updates on the companies and activities.

Lastly, David Lingham, head of business for Fix Auto World, commented that the Fix Automotive Network model could be transported to others as they develop in Europe, ‘There are several things the repairers around the world can learn from the transparency Canadian consolidators have created including one-stop shopping, different models for insurers and high industry standards.’
