AW Repair Group in Watchdog Programme

BBC & BSI say trust your approved accident repair centre

Trust your approved accident repair centre

AW Repair Group was under BBC spotlight this week featuring in a Watchdog episode focusing on safe vehicle repair.
The British Standard Institute recently contacted us to ensure consumers are aware of the automotive industry standards explored in Monday’s broadcast (March 16th) of BBC Watchdog test house.

The vehicle repair sector is not regulated by law, only those bodyshops with integrity choose to subscribe to the BSI who regularly carry out audits to ensure vehicles are repaired in the way in which the manufacturer and safety methods approve.

AW have opened site 4!

AW Repair Group is proud to have opened the doors at branch number four this morning (Monday 2nd March)

AW Accident Repair Centres (Derbyshire) is a 15,000sq feet bodyshop located on the Markham Vale Enterprise Park, just off Junction 29A of the M1.

Managing Director Andrew Walsh commented: “I am extremely pleased to announce the opening of our latest site. We took possession of the building in December with equipping and installation a very smooth process.

“The site neatly links together our existing branches while expanding our geographical coverage to the Chesterfield area.”

The branch will operate under the watchful eye of Ian Pearson, existing manager of the group’s Yorkshire branch where his assistant Chris Keast will be taking on a more active role.

At Markham Vale, Ian is ably supported by a wealth of knowledge from former paint demonstrator Simon Pratt and customer liaison advisor Amy Baines who has been working at the Yorkshire branch for the past six months.

The £450,000 project includes two drive through Junair booths, three bay Blackhawk Korek pulling system with Shark measuring equipment and Car-O-Liner jig and purposely designed open plan offices in the company’s corporate blue and orange.

“We are very pleased to offer this extended coverage for our existing work partners who are seeking quality bodyshop space and customer service here in the Chesterfield area,” added Andrew. “Along with renewing relationships with some of our former insurance partners.”
