Fix Auto World announces Ireland plans

At IBIS Ireland’s 2018 Forum, Fix Auto World announced its plans to develop a comprehensive aftermarket services solution in Ireland across its two franchise network brands, Fix Auto and NOVUS Glass.

Operations for both brands are led by Jonathan Penny, in partnership with Denis Dineen.

Jonathan says the franchise will combine the best of the brands’ operational excellence, with local market knowledge and strong marketing resources. ‘Our aim is to provide a collision and glass business model that drives customer service and performance. This will allow our members to concentrate on their expertise, while enjoying the support of a dedicated marketing, sales and operations team to maximise their business potential’, Jonathan explained.

Fix Auto World has developed strong relationships with work providers to simplify the claims process and promote transparency for consumers, a business platform which the Fix Auto Ireland team will similarly develop.

David Lingham, head of business for Fix Auto World, said the calibre of bodyshop professionals in Ireland was already high and could only be enhanced with the support provided by the global franchise organisation.

‘The Irish aftermarket space understands the need for consolidation and seems to be ready to embrace a service offering like ours. We are pleased to bring our proven business model to Ireland and to do so by integrating both our body shop and glass brands from the very start,’ said David of the announcement, made at the IBIS Ireland conference in Dublin.
