Revive! is one of the UK’s leading cosmetic repair specialist and has a rapidly growing national network of SMART repair technicians providing professional repairs.
In June, Revive! won the prestigious bfa HSBC award for Franchise Support and once again Revive! leads the way, becoming the first cosmetic repair franchise to be recognised as an approved training centre by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI).
Managing Director Mark Llewellyn states a clear intention of higher standards for the industry.
“We at Revive! have been working on professional standards with the IMI for two years now,” he said. “For too long the SMART sector has had no standards and the term SMART has been tarnished by poor workers and rogue traders. “It is clear that there has been little consistency in terms of quality and service and nothing for technicians to be measured against. We hope this is about to change with a professional accreditation that repairers can be proud to be part of.” Revive! already has the backing of vehicle manufactures with its contract with Fiat group to service Fiat and Alfa Romeo dealerships and has also worked with prestige manufacturers on warranty claims.
Revive! has continued to grow over the past two years as dealerships and national fleet organisations have responded to the demands of the recession and found professional cost effective solutions for their minor repairs through Revive!’s service.
Llewellyn concludes: “We are delighted with the progress we have made over the past two years and this latest development will further push high quality repairers to the forefront.”
