From June 2008 edition of Bodyshop Magazine.
AW Repair Group’s Sleaford site has become the first in Lincolnshire to achieve the Thatcham BSI Kitemark, just eight weeks after its South Yorkshire site was accredited.
Managing Director Andrew Walsh said: “Everyone in the AW Group has gained so much from the whole process and I am very proud that both sites can now display the Kitemark with pride.”
Many of the required procedures and processes that were highlighted following a gap analysis at South Yorkshire were implemented at the Lincolnshrie site, particularly in relation to future staff development.
According to Lincolnshire Branch Manager Michael Thorpe, the hard work was worth the effort.
“Achieving the Kitemark is a large expense to any bodyshop, Any bodyshop that ha achieved this know they earned it.”
