Streamlining of Jaguar Land Rover bodyshop network

Jaguar Land Rover is expecting to reduce its approved accident repair centre network as new standards come into force.

From March it requires all its approved bodyshops, almost two thirds of which are independent, to be aluminium-repair capable, with competence training completed and the correct specification equipment and facilities.

The result is expected to be a reduction in locations from 110 to around 90 as some independents have chosen not to make the investment.

Diagnostic capability will remain the preserve of JLR's franchised dealerships however, as it wants to support the dealer experience and their relationships with customers, said UK body and paint programme manager Kevern Thompson in January's Bodyshop magazine.
