Revive! West Lincolnshire has been shortlisted in the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards 2017 as SME business of the year.
Owner, Russel Hudson (pictured), set up the SMART mobile repair business in 2006 following a career in corporate hospitality.
“I always had ambitious growth plans for the business, but I knew I had to start hands-on to properly understand the industry,” said Hudson.
“Today I mainly focus on business development and managing the fleet, but I still step in to carry out repairs if we’re short staffed. Customer service and reliability are paramount.”
The West Lincs team are on track to hit £1m turnover by the end of next year.
Currently employing 11 people, the franchise has eight mobile repair vans and two specialist wheel vans on the road.
Hudson said: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for this award. We have had one of the best trading years ever and I felt that our award submission was strong.
“Even so it was a big surprise to hear that were one of the finalists. We’ve got a great team of people here at Revive! West Lincs and it’s all credit to them that our business has been recognised as one of the best in Lincolnshire.”
