Bodyshop group Just Car Clinics expands into Scotland

Just Car Clinics has added another two bodyshops to its accident repair network, entering Scotland for the first time.

It has acquired businesses in Dundee and Forfar from RDW Bodyshops.

This latest acquisition comes three months after Just Car Clinics expanded its 25-site car body repair network into Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, with its takeover of Avid Autos.

Barry Whittles, chief executive of Just Car Clinics, said: "When we announced our acquisition plan back in late 2014 we were very serious about our plans and have worked hard to bring three new sites on in as many months.

"These latest sites are our first ones in Scotland which is a key area of growth and development for us and we’ll be announcing more acquisitions in Scotland over the coming months.

All of the existing 31 employees at the Dundee and Forfar bodyshops will be transferred over to the business under the TUPE regulations and it is expected that there will be a creation of additional new employment opportunities at the sites.
