Hamilton, Ontario — Fix Network has announced that it is expanding the ProColor Collision brand across Canada. The first ProColor location outside of Quebec, is now open in Hamilton, Ontario.
ProColor Collision was acquired by Fix Network in September 2019 to expand the brand outside of Quebec Canada. This is the brand’s first venture outside of Quebec. The brand already has 175 locations in Quebec and is planning on launching 14 other locations in Ontario, the Atlantic and Western Canada.
“By expanding the brand across Canada, we’re offering customers greater choice for their automotive repair needs,” says Steve Leal, President & CEO of Fix Network. “We’re also providing body shop owner operators a chance to grow their business using Fix Network’s proven operational processes and management tools, and access to our talented team of professionals who know the industry inside and out.”
Fix Network’s business involves collision, glass repair and mechanical services. Its franchise’s strategic partners have exclusive territorial access, full operational support, training and technologies as well as established relationships with insurers and work providers.
Fix Network has added 15 new Fix Auto and NOVUS Glass locations in the last six months. Majority of provinces have also designated collision, auto glass repair and mechanical services as essential services. Fix Network locations have been open for business throughout the pandemic, following strict safety protocols including physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and disinfection, as well as following all provincial and municipal guidance and bylaws.
“We’re always talking with prospective independent body shop owner operators who are interested in growing their business and gaining operational support by joining a network like ours,” says Leal. “The pandemic has further highlighted the value of a network, which can support you through the uncertainty by giving you the tools, knowledge and training that you and your team need to get through the crisis and grow your business the right way.”
Plans for ProColor Collision growth throughout Canada, as well as other markets are expected to be announced soon, says the company.
