Fix Auto UK has teamed up with Florida-based AirPro Diagnostics, a company offering remote vehicle diagnostics and calibration products. The partnership will initially bring AirPro’s Auggie mobile system into the UK.
Ian Pugh, Fix Auto UK’s managing director, says Auggie is a “game changer” that not only frees up valuable space within a workshop, but its simplicity and usability ensures it can be operated by anyone from a newly inducted apprentice through to a senior technician.
“We’re in an age where our repairers face the necessity to complete ADAS calibrations on almost every modern vehicle but it’s a procedure that can dramatically slow down the whole repair process,” Pugh says. “Being part of a global organization, I reached out to my overseas colleagues to see what products were available that can speed up and simplify the process.”
Commenting on the new partnership, Michael Quinn, president of AirPro Diagnostics, says,
“AirPro is proud to launch into the UK, with the Fix Auto UK Group agreement. We know Ian and the UK network to be the most operationally disciplined body shop group in the UK and we look forward to working closely with his franchise partners and delivering our unmatched capabilities in diagnostics and cost-effective ADAS calibration equipment and services to ensure a complete and safe repair for motorists.”
Maria Charlton, AirPro UK managing director, adds, “We are extremely confident in our ability to safely service and calibrate the majority of vehicles serviced by Fix Auto UK. Our North American track record of thousands of satisfied shop clients can readily attest to this fact.”
