Blainville, Quebec — Fix Network World has reaffirmed the importance of the Spanish market by announcing the launch of the first six Fix Auto-NOVUS Glass locations across the country.
The six new locations – Barcelona North, Arganda del Rey, Leganes, Madrid Este, Coslada and Guadalajara – are the first of many locations that Fix Network World has planned to support Spain’s aftermarket industry.
“The Spanish market has witnessed exceptional resilience over the past few years, and we anticipate significant growth opportunities in this critical market. Together with GTRES, we are confident of cementing more partnerships with forward-thinking body shop owners and help them to increase their profitability,” Steve Leal, President and CEO of Fix Network World.
The Spanish operations for Fix Auto and NOVUS Glass are led by GTRES master franchisee and CEO Luis Chao Jaramillo and supported by Operations and Strategy Director Fermín Hevia García.
Jaramillo says in the current times, independent collision repair shops can experience the reach of established aftermarket brands such as Fix Auto and NOVUS Glass to remain profitable. By aligning their businesses with Fix Network, body shops can benefit from the network’s unrivalled marketing and technology support, along with gaining access to a large network of insurance providers and suppliers.
“Body shops are always looking to improve their operational efficiencies and build a solid profitable business. Fix Auto and NOVUS Glass offer two attractive business opportunities for such body shops to learn from Fix Network World’s best practices and offer advanced collision and glass repair services of the highest level,” Jaramillo says.
Jaramillo points out that the strategy of the franchise owners to include NOVUS Glass in their service offering shows their determination of the franchisees to offer all aftermarket operations under one roof.
“Almost all collisions involve significant damage to windshields and automotive glass. By offering NOVUS Glass services, they can now control their operations better and ensure quicker turnaround times.
Four of the new franchises – Leganes, Madrid Este, Coslada and Guadalajara – are owned and operated by Juan Antonio Ausin, while the Barcelona North and Arganda del Rey locations are owned by Miguel Angel Lopez Exposito and Miguel Mendez respectively.
