Andrew Page has secured a preferred supplier agreement with the only independent car servicing franchise in the country, iAutoUK.

The Coventry business launched the franchise side to its operation at the NEC in October last year. The company says it plans to grow its network to 25 franchises over the next five years.

Andrew Page says it has been so impressed with the growth of the business that it has agreed to supply new iAutoUK franchises with equipment, parts and technical training.

Andrew Page Managing Director Mark Roberts said: “We believe the aftermarket sector benefits from a more professional approach and image to the car driver, so we therefore support the iAutoUK concept as it is focused on quality of service offered to customers.

“iAutoUK is demonstrating how business acumen as much as a technical knowledge is key to running a successful and profitable garage.”

Andy Fox is the Director of iAutoUK: “We chose Andrew Page to be our preferred supplier because they are one of the UK’s top distributors.

“Plus, we were particularly attracted by the range of ATA-accredited training and courses that Andrew Page provides for technicians.

“We are an independent car-servicing company – but we aim for our technicians to be among the best in the aftermarket industry.”

Fox also commented that following the launch of iAutoUK’s franchise program the company has a number of leads for possible franchise investors. He says the model offers people with business acumen the chance to launch their own profitable garage venture.
