Fix Network and Uni-Select Inc. have entered into an agreement that will see Fix Network acquire Uni-Select’s Carrossier ProColor business. The transaction closed on September 30, 2019, according to Fix Network.
“The addition of ProColor will see our network grow to over 450 collision repair facilities across the country; making us the largest collision repair services provider in the Canadian market,” said Steve Leal, Fix Network World president and CEO. “Fix Network is the first to offer all three services under one network; collision, mechanical and glass,” added Leal.
Following the acquisition of the Speedy Auto Service and Minute Muffler & Brake in 2016 and the global NOVUS Glass brand in 2017, ProColor is the next step in the execution of Leal’s vision to create a global force in the automotive aftermarket industry, according to the company.
“We believe the combined operations will ensure a highly complementary service offering to both our valued insurance partners and customers by providing additional capacity to meet collision repair needs across the country,” said Leal. Additionally, existing ProColor members will gain access to Fix Network’s other brands, Speedy Auto Service and NOVUS Glass, which will provide them the opportunity to expand and enhance their businesses.
As part of the transaction, Uni-Select will become a preferred supplier for all of the Fix Network brands in the markets served by Uni-Select.
“Since Uni-Select launched ProColor in 2001, the network grew from 28 to 172 collision repair shops and established its clear leadership position in the Québec market. We look forward to continuing a long-term supply partnership with Fix Auto and supporting ProColor’s growth,” said Brent Windom, Uni-Select President and CEO.
