Expand The Brand: Fix Network World adds 60 new locations in 2020

Blainville, Quebec  In 2020, the network added 60 new locations around the world and expanded the ProColor Collision brand into the United States.

Fix Network World is forging ahead upon its global expansion plans, with a strong focus on developing franchises in new markets and increasing penetration in existing territories.

“Our franchise development strategy is aimed at independent body shop owners who are keen to protect their businesses from the surrounding uncertainty,” said Steve Leal, president, and CEO of Fix Network World. “Fix Network World will continue to support such passionate business owners by equipping them with the latest tools and knowledge so they can maintain a robust operation.”

Despite the pandemicFix Network World has steadily grown the footprint of its collision, glass, and mechanical business, which includes, Fix Auto, ProColor Collision, NOVUS Glass, Speedy Auto Service, and SPR.

According to the latest report from The Romans Group, there was a large decrease in miles driven during the pandemic as well as the number of accidents and claims processed compared to 2019. However, consolidation has continued as collision repairers face lagging sales but need to invest in structural changes and training as vehicle repair complexity increases.

In factmost of Fix Network’s growth took place in the second half of 2020, with many independent owner-operators recognizing the value of joining a network for this reason. From Boosting its regional support teams to training franchisees in the latest automotive technologies, the network is continuously redefining the body shop experience, by providing independent collision repairers the support and tools that help drive sales, manage operations, and enhance the client experience.

Calling 2021 “the year of sustainable growth,” Leal said that the extraordinary challenges in the “post-COVID-19 normal” have made the network even more determined to create the largest global network of independent collision repair facilities.

“As future automotive trends become a reality, we are committed to help our franchisees prepare for and benefit from what’s ahead,” Leal adds. “From virtual classrooms training technicians in the latest auto repair processes to teaching office staff in customer service and marketing processes – we are doing everything to ensure that our franchisees can operate at full potential.”

The aftermarket industry is changing quickly and one of Fix Network World’s priorities is to ensure that its franchise partners are always supported with the most advanced automotive technology and training, along with the collaborative support structure of the network.

  1. This is my comment. Why is Icbc and other insurance companies not coming to the plate when it comes to a recycling fee on parts. Ei bumpers and other recyclable materials. They have set precedent all ready on other materials. I’m a a rural shop that pays to have all my recyclables taken even scrap metals cost money to take away. This has been brought up many times during meetings with Icbc and Fix auto here in BC. With the response of oh that’s interesting. I’m at a loss and very upset this is happening. Our industry needs a reset. Over 30 plus years as a tech. Red seal both in paint and body. Shop owner for the last 10. Now I’m reaching out to media. Ps I’m surrounded by farmland live and work on my property. And my neighbor across the street is our local MLA at parliament who is a farmer and was secretary to the minister of transport.
