AW Repair Group is pleased to announce that expansion plans for the group are "well underway" with site nine due to open later this year.
The 9,000sq ft site is situated 30 minutes from major cities, Leeds, York and Wakefield and is only 25 miles from AW’s site in Denaby Main. The latest addition to AW group will create circa 12 jobs in the area with apprenticeship opportunities available.
Work has started this week on the modern detached building, which is just 10 minutes from the A1M and 20 minutes from the M62.
The purpose designed bodyshop utilises the latest technological advances available to maximise efficiency and will feature a 10m drive-through Junair spraybooth with QAD drying technology, Skate & Rail vehicle transfer system to minimise vehicle movements and PPG refinishing system. The site will include full Electric and Hybrid vehicle repair capabilities with all staff trained in EV’s to mirror AW’s other eight repair centres.
The two-story offices will consist of AW corporate Blue and Orange branding throughout reception, admin offices and the meeting room.
The site will include integral Minden Dust Extraction, eco-friendly radiant heating and 1000 Lux LED Lighting, creating a quality working environment for the team who will be moving there from AW’s sister sites, where they have been training.
These expansion plans are announced just weeks after the opening of AW’s second LV= General Insurance sole supply site in Denaby Main which boosts the groups annualised turnover to over £17.5M [which would place them as the 13th largest independent bodyshop group in the UK in the ABP Year Book].
