Saudi Arabia’s Gulf Motor Company, part of United Motors Group, has signed a significant agreement with Canada-based Fix Network World in order to launch 12 new service and collision repair centers throughout the Kingdom.
Fix Network World is a global leader in the automotive aftermarket services sector, consisting of Fix Auto, NOVUS Glass, ProColor Collision, Speedy Auto Service, Speedy Glass USA, and SRP brands.
The company said in a statement that “the agreement will see Gulf Motor Company becoming the exclusive partner for Fix Auto in Saudi Arabia and the wider region.”
The new partnership will launch with six collision centers and six quick service centers spread across Saudi Arabia. The collision repair services will be known as Fix Auto Collision, while the mechanical service and repair centers, will be called Fix Auto Service.
Mr. Hassan Al Shamrani, CEO of United Motors, stated that, “This is an important time for motorists in KSA. As the Kingdom enjoys a sustained period of unprecedented growth, it’s important to know that your vehicle will receive first-class maintenance and repairs, if an unfortunate accident does occur.”
“In choosing to sign this agreement with Fix Network World, we are partnering with a trusted and high-quality brand recognized around the world, that will ensure drivers and owners in the Kingdom will be in safe hands whenever their car needs service or repairs,” noted Mr. Al Shamrani.
As part of the agreement, GMC will extensively renovate and equip its facilities and retrain its existing staff to meet the high standards of Fix Network World in the months ahead.
“The locations are scheduled to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2022. GMC and Fix Network are also actively considering several potential franchise applicants and will select the best to be part of the network as early as 2023,” as per the company.
