NBRA Membership

AW Repair Group and The National Body Repair Association (NBRA) have now held final discussions at AW’s Prestige HQ in Sleaford, Lincolnshire regarding their newly announced membership.

Andrew Walsh, AW Repair Group’s Managing Director and James Dunn, AW’s Group Operations Manager met with Chris Weeks, NBRA Director and Michael Wicks, NBRA National Business Development Manager to finalise the membership details and confirm support of NBRA’s vision to become a single voice for the body repair industry.

“I feel we are at a time when constructive discussions that arise from the many forums and events within the body repair industry can be taken that step further by an acknowledged members association. It’s great that the NBRA members will have one consolidated voice to help shape the future of this industry.” Commented Andrew.

Chris Weeks, NBRA Director, added: “For years I have admired the way Andrew and his whole team at AW work – long before my role here. Attracting highly evolved groups like AW into membership strengthens our voice when addressing the key issues that affect the body repair industry. As repairers become more united by the NBRA, industry decision makers are increasingly more willing to listen to us.”

Telegraph newspaper film AW documentary

A W repair group is honoured to have been selected as one of 12 businesses to be featured in the prestigious Telegraph Newspaper Business Club’s profiles for 2019.

The acclaimed daily newspaper approached AW after a string of awards and successes in 2018 to put together a short documentary about the growing crash repair group.

In partnership with the Telegraph’s video production company Tracc, the four minute film shows how AW Repair Group continues to “push the boundaries” and is preparing for a future with high tech and electric vehicles being a significant part of the car market.

The slick film also includes interviews with two apprentices and LV= Insurance network manager Michael Golding.

Managing Director Andrew Walsh is delighted with the end result which went live on the Telegraph’s website yesterday (May 7).

“The film is fantastic and not only shows what AW Repair Group is doing but is a focus on the skill, technology and investment required in the accident repair sector,” said Andrew.

“The whole process took more than three months from initial interviews to detailed plans of how visuals and voiceover would work together to convey the message before the cameras even started to roll.”

The film starts with aerial footage over a dusk-lit AW headquarters in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, and features four of the company’s eight sites.

The documentary on the Telegraph Business Club website is accompanied by a detailed article in which journalists Steve Hemsley concludes: “Expect more glowing tributes for a company which has no plans to stop doing things differently.”
