Chris Peterson, Western Canada Fix Network regional vice president, welcomed Fix Auto Strathmore into the network. The company notes that the new shop strengthens its footprint in Alberta.
The new shop is the third Fix Auto location established by owner-operators Andy and Lana Moritz in four years. The couple launched Fix Auto Calgary Deerfoot in 2016, following up with Fix Auto Drayton three years later. In 2017, they entered the automotive glass repair business by taking up a NOVUS Glass franchise in the region.
The Moritz’s said Fix Auto Strathmore was recently launched to meet the regional demand for advanced collision repair services. Fix Auto Strathmore is a 10,000 square foot repair center, outfitted with modern collision repair equipment and a trained team of auto technicians and support staff, according to the Moritz’s.
“Strathmore is a fast-growing town and we are keen to bring our expertise to this important community,” said Lana. “In this endeavor, we have put together a fantastic team of experienced technicians and front-end staff. From offering the highest quality of repair work to unparalleled customer service, Fix Auto Strathmore aims to become the best-in-class facility in the region.”
The couple has been associated with the region’s collision repair industry for over a decade, but it was only in 2016 that they decided to move their business to Fix Network. “We decided to join the Fix Network as we felt that their core values aligned with ours. We wanted to be part of a team that recognizes the value of family and reputation,” said Lana. “Also, we wanted to make a difference in the lives of not only our family but the people who work for us.”
Recently, Fix Auto Calgary Deerfoot achieved recognition under the Canadian Collision Industry Accreditation Program (CCIAP). The Moritz’s are working towards achieving the CCIAP certification for their Drayton and Strathmore locations.
“Both Lana and Andy Moritz are incredibly engaged members within the Fix Network family and on top of the most modern industry advancements,” said Peterson. “After observing how they have so quickly turned around the operations at their other Fix Auto locations, I am confident that their latest venture too will soon become best-in-class facility in the province.”
