Aftermarket leader Fix Network has expanded its reach in the Latin American market, launching its first two Fix Auto locations in Mexico this week. Steve Leal, president and CEO of Fix Network, describes the launches as milestone moments in the company’s global expansion efforts.
“We see significant opportunities in this critical market with an increasing number of body shops here showing their interest to join our network,” Leal said. “I am confident that, in the coming years, Mexico will contribute significantly to our international growth through robust partnerships with forward-thinking body shop owners and our relentless focus on customer service.”
Manfred Brandes, CEO of Fix Auto Mexico, said that the launch of the two Fix Auto locations comes at a time when Fix Network is determined to expand globally.
“Like many of our strategic partners around the world, our locations in Mexico demonstrate a clear commitment towards delivering a personalized customer experience and sophisticated repair quality,” Brandes said.
Roberto Axle, owner operator of Fix Auto Veracruz, said the expansion offers repairers opportunity for growth.
“The Fix Auto franchise model allows repairers like me to own and operate locally while learning from Fix Network’s established best practices and support,” Axle said. “By aligning our business with Fix Network, we are confident of replicating their global success in the Mexican market.”
Fidel Rocha, owner of Fix Auto Toluca, said that becoming a Fix Auto franchisee will help his team gain access to some of the world’s most advanced collision repair training and marketing support.
“There is a huge demand in Mexico for high quality collision repair and I am keen that our technicians are trained to repair the most complex and modern cars to meet this demand,” Rocha said. “Aligning our business with Fix Auto would help my team to achieve that objective and build a facility that we can be truly proud of.”
