Nationwide Autocentre has seen a 21% increase in sales over the last three years, with a 7.2% increase from September 2008 to January 2009, compared to the same 2007/2008 period.
Duncan Wilkes, Nationwide Autocentre chief executive, said: “People are holding on to their cars for longer at the moment but they’re also keen to avoid huge repair bills. Providing customers with competitive prices, while keeping repair standards at the highest possible level is therefore vital.”
Wilkes added: “We see no reason why the company can’t continue to expand in 2009. Our sales are still growing and we’re always looking to grow through acquisitions and green field development.”
