Stratford, Ontario -- April 30, 2018 -- Fix Auto has announced the addition of Fix Auto Stratford to its network.
The sibling team, Andrew and Kate Tapley, are carrying on their family tradition as second generation owner/operators.
Their father founded the family’s first location back in 1979, acquired a second facility in 2000 and then in 2016 Andrew and Kate consolidated the two locations into one which is now the site of Fix Auto Stratford.
“It was the dream of our mother and father that one day we would take over the business,” said Kate.
“It’s a very exciting time in our industry and we are elated to be part of a growing brand that focuses on supporting their franchise strategic partners with innovative operational, management and marketing tools,” commented Andrew.
Fix Auto Stratford is a 18,000 square foot facility, featuring production space, a drive-in appraisal bay and a modern reception area. In addition, the Tapleys recently installed a new paint booth with the intention of improving cycle times. The team is I-CAR Gold in Progress and has just achieved recognition under the Canadian Collision Industry Accreditation Program (CCIAP). “Andrew and I are extremely proud of our team here. Our staff are all highly trained and treat each of our customers like family,” said Kate.
Daryll O’Keefe, general manager for Fix Auto Ontario and Manitoba Region concludes, “Having Andrew, Kate and their team join the Fix Auto family is great for our entire network. The pride they have in this family run business is inspiring and we are so pleased to partner with them as they continue to grow their business.”
