Montreal, Quebec -- November 3, 2016 -- Fix Auto has announced the addition of two new facilities to the network: Fix Auto St-Augustin and Fix Auto Calgary City Centre.
Fix Auto St-Augustin is owned and operated by Guy and Gilles Vallières.
"Our shop’s philosophy is first and foremost based on a family spirit," says Guy. "This is what pushed us to go with Fix Auto in the first place; it’s a well-known and established brand, but that also takes the time to build business relations around a family spirit."
The Vallières have been in business for more than 23 years, while having almost 40 years of experience in the industry.
“Guy and Gilles Vallières are extremely passionate entrepreneurs who will bring a valuable expertise to the Fix Auto network," says Michel Bourgeois, General Manager of Fix Auto Quebec. "Having Fix Auto St-Augustin as a partner in our ever-growing network makes us very proud. We wish them good luck in this new chapter.”
Fix Auto Calgary City Centre is owned by John Gibson. It previously operated as Heninger Collision Centre. The facility has been in operation since 1975.
“After reviewing all of our options, we made the decision to go with Fix Auto because it was obvious after attending their recent conference in Calgary, that their business values were aligned with our own. We are confident that is a progressive company and that our conjoint future will be positive and full of growth,” says Dave Verboom, Operations Manager for Fix Auto Calgary City Centre.
In 2010, the business moved to a new 20, 000 sq. ft. location.
“The facility was renovated in 2010 and contains the latest equipment such as computerized measurement systems and resistance welding technology," says Verboom. "Our multiple spray booths allows us to minimize cycle time while increasing productivity. We are also a Toyota Certified facility, as well as being in the process of becoming I-CAR Gold Class certified.”
