Automotive repair giant Kwik Fit has officially joined the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF).
The company, with more than 600 centres nationwide, will support IAAF’s growing network of garages, parts distributors and suppliers, it said.
Kwik Fit will also work closely with the federation on lobbying and campaign issues such as Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Order (MVBEO) and MOT testing.
Kwik Fit will also be represented on the IAAF Council and will “play an active role with other members to help shape the future development of the federation for the benefit of the wider automotive industry”, the federation said.
Ben Boot, Kwik Fit’s head of development (service, maintenance and repair), said: “IAAF has proven an excellent partner in informing and educating industry personnel on the latest issues and legislation affecting automotive businesses. It’s essential at this pivotal time that we unite as an industry and actively support the federation’s message.
“Membership of IAAF also brings us closer to our suppliers and this will only serve to benefit the millions of Kwik Fit customers throughout the UK.”
IAAF boss Mark Field said: “We’ve been working closely with Kwik Fit and I’m delighted that they have become part of the IAAF membership.
“The federation has very ambitious plans to develop and their membership will be crucial to our wider member engagement, development of people in the industry and, Right to Repair campaign, aimed at ensuring choice and affordable motoring for millions of motorists.”
