Junair to contribute to Fix Auto Rochdale renovation

Fix Auto Rochdale, a North West Lancashire based Accident Repair Centre have recently announced a huge £1million investment in order to further develop their current award-winning repair facility.

As part of this expansion and investment into their Fix & Go facility, Fix Auto Rochdale are investing in a state-of-the-art Junair 4 bay MultiBooth spraybooth oven. Each MultiBooth cabin is a combination preparation area and a full low bake spraybooth, allowing multiple vehicles to be repaired in a clean, controlled and safe environment. Overspray is contained within individual bays, ensuring a cleaner workshop environment. The MultiBooth is robustly built using a steel, double skinned, insulated construction which meets HSE regulations including the essential 30 minute fire resistance.

Industrial Spraybooth installation services from Junair

The new MultiBooth installation represents a form of our industrial spraybooth installation services, and allows the Fix & Go facility to focus on the rapid repair of light to medium damaged vehicles, improving their customer journey and considerably improving their cycle times.

Work has already begun to transform the 11,000sq ft site into the new Fix & Go facility including the Junair MultiBooth which will be operational early spring.

Phil Ewbank, Chairman, Fix Auto Rochdale, commented, “Our confidence in the economy and our position in the market has been growing month-by-month, so we have been considering our expansion plans very carefully for some time. We are regularly being challenged by Fix Auto and our other clients to accommodate additional repair volumes and, while we are fulfilling those demands the reality is, due to the growth we have seen in our business in 2015, we will soon outgrow our current 26,000sq ft facility.

“There is a clear shift to less severe damage on cars, and by operating the Fix & Go model in conjunction with our traditional bodyshop, we are confident that we will be able to cater for this growing market segment and improve our service delivery all-round. This investment will ensure that we are able to deliver against the long-term needs of our clients and we will look to continually improve the customer journey and reduce our overall cycle times.”

Improved quality services with a Junair Multibooth

Key to key time, quality and cost always feature highly in customer demands and now with the new MultiBooth from Junair, Fix Auto Rochdale are able to deliver on all of these requirements.

Jason Douglas, Sales Director at Junair Spraybooths, enthused, “When Fix Auto Rochdale first came to me with the brief it became apparent quite quickly that the MultiBooth was the answer. Not only does it reduce the cycle times by allowing cars to be prepared, sprayed and baked in situ, but it also offers the same high quality finish that you get from a standard Junair spraybooth. As the MultiBooth shares an air handling plant across all bays the initial outlay is less than you’d expect, and when you include the Junair energy saving extras the savings just keep on adding up.”
