Bevan Group, specialist commercial vehicle bodybuilder, recently increased their shareholding from a modest level in 2013 to full acquisition of one of the country’s finest accident repair shops, A&R Vehicle Services.
The long standing PPG FleetWatch member still retains the services of two key personalities within the original business, directors Ron Rushworth and Colin Bannister. This retention paves the way for customers to remain confident that the service levels achieved will remain and the culture continues in the same vein.
The Bevan procurement of the A&R business does not mean a change in the rebranding of the business as they realise its reputation enjoyed in the industry is a major benefit, but they will add their expertise in market development to enhance the future for customers and employees alike.
The extensive site at A&R in Wednesbury offer clients all the services one could ask for, from shot blast, structural repair facilities, such as chassis jigs and alignment systems, to specialist tanker repairs. Built to give clients a ‘one stop shop’ from vehicle painting at new to de-fleeting at the end of life, they cater for all the HGV paint and body requirements anyone could desire.
Situated close to Junction 9 on the M6 they are constantly enjoying work from as far afield as Manchester and London, with distance proving no obstacle.
http://www.aandrvehicleservices.com/ is where all clients, new and old, can really see the professional outlook of their business with an updated news feed, online estimate requests and the facility to upload images of vehicle damage for assessment. Here you can see all the facilities available and watch information videos to underline their quality of service.
As a PPG FleetWatch member, they have access to the PPG PaintSpec vehicle imaging documents that can be built bespoke for any client. These are designed to ensure that the paint and livery on client’s vehicles are well documented and they help to drive corporate consistency. As a valued FleetWatch network member, A&R also have the ability to apply the full FleetWatch warranty when aligned to a PaintSpec document.
Congratulations to Bevan Group and the A&R team on this new dawn and no doubt the industry will be keen to see how the next 40 years will play out.
