A group of UK collision repair businesses are launching their own quality assured repairer network aimed specifically at prestige vehicles.
Membership of the Vizion Network will be restricted to repair businesses that have prestige manufacturer approvals, BSI Kitemark accreditation and operate the same repair management system.
Vizion’s founding members are Eamonn Dunne, of Brooklands, Paul Austin, of Balgores, Trevor Barefoot, of Exway, Gene Clark, of Clarkes, Julian Allen, of Motorvation, David Perkins and Graham Eyles, of Apollo Motor Group, and Gary Lindsay, of Autoflow.
Eamonn Dunne, of Brooklands, has been appointed chairman of Vizion Network.
He said: “Vizion has been created to meet a market need. We can no longer afford to have a fragmented, clouded approach to vehicle body repair.
“Now, owners, insurers and fleet managers can specify a Vizion Network repairer and be confident their prestige vehicles will be repaired safely and effectively to a consistently high manufacturer standard.”
All Vizion Network businesses will have prestige vehicle manufacturer-trained technicians offering own brand specific knowledge.
All will have the BSI Kitemark for vehicle body repair ensuring they follow consistent processes underpinned by thorough BSI audit and inspection.
Also, using the same repair management system means Vizion members and clients will benefit from improved operational efficiency, transparency, and consistent management information.
Paul Austin said: “Vizion has brought together a group of experts dedicated to moving the UK collision industry forward.”
