Sandicliffe Group, a £170 million turnover franchised dealer in the east Midlands, has gained Kitemark certification for its three bodyshops within six months.
Reg Tutt, managing director, said the Kitemark for vehicle body repair was relevant in demonstrating the group’s beliefs in safety and business development to customers.
The regular audits would help ensure the accident repair centres continued to deliver the same quality and safety every time, he said.
“In this competitive market, we must keep ahead and the Kitemark certification helps us do this. Because of its independence, integrity and trust, this gives our company a real competitive advantage,” said Tutt.
