AW Repair Group’s newest site opened its doors on Monday this week and is a reflection of the group’s continued commitment to utilising the most up to date repair technology.
The facility is located on Beeston Business Park, in Beeston, Nottingham, just three miles from Nottingham City Centre and on the city’s tram route. With junction 25 of the M1 just 20 minutes away, the site has easy access into Derby and Leicester.
Managing Director Andrew Walsh said: “We have transformed this empty shell into a fully functional bodyshop in just three months. The site looks absolutely superb and we have further improved on bodyshop design and layout for maximum efficiency.”
The 13,300sq ft purposely designed bodyshop enjoys the unique perpendicular skate and rail system from Junair which creates a super-speed paint and prep area and enviable working environment.
With a double length full downdraught spraybooth easily accommodating two vehicles or one vehicle and off car panels, different colours can be painted simultaneously without cross contamination.
Together these facilitate a faster and more efficient throughput of vehicles enabling between 12 and 14 vehicles to be painted each day.
The welcoming open plan reception and offices feature the company’s striking blue and orange corporate identity, LED lighting throughout and branding to mirror AW Repair Group’s four other sites.
General Manager of the site James Dunn commented: “I have seen this building transform and it’s all credit to Andrew who has again brought in another AW Bodyshop on schedule.
“We’ve a very experienced hand—picked team here at Beeston with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
“We are looking forward to delivering the AW customer experience with our unique philosophy – we move aside traditional bodyshop processes for a new way of delivering a great customer service experience.”
