Baldwins Repair Group announces acquisition in West Midlands

Baldwins Repair Group expands its award-winning accident repair service in the West Midlands, following the acquisition of Quicks ASR Ltd.

The repair centres, based in Coventry and Birmingham, have been operating for almost two years. This is the first expansion move by new CEO, Richard Steer, who purchased Baldwins Repair Group in July 2018.

The two newly acquired sites join the four well established Baldwins repair centres based in Aylesbury (HO), Corby, Leicester and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Richard Steer said: “I’m delighted to welcome the Quicks team to our business. This is a fantastic opportunity for Baldwins to increase our operational reach, whilst strengthening and enlarging our team. Finding these new possibilities is a key driver for the group’s growth plans.

“This acquisition is a clear indication that I want to take this organisation to the next level and build on the platform that already exists to make us the body repair partner of choice for our clients and their customers.

“The industry is changing and to continue our success, we need to grow and evolve with the times. This is the beginning of that process.”

We are celebrating 15 years of operation!

2018 sees us enter our 15th year of operating as a bodyshop repair business.

Our first site, based in Aylesbury, was purchased by Steve Warner and his business partners in 2003. Today, Steve is the 100 percent shareholder. He continues to run the Group and manage it alongside Group General Manager Peter Randhawa.

To grow and strengthen our position, we have increased our site numbers to five. This includes our fast track centre in Leicester and our London site, which is currently in the planning process to create a purpose-built facility.

We currently employ over 100 employees and we are proud to be the approved bodyshop for manufacturers Ford, Honda, MG and Mistsubishi. We are also approved by a number of insurers including LV=, Covea, Allianz and esure.

Our Managing Director Steve Warner says: “Our success so far has been achieved through the hard work and dedication of all our employees and previous Directors.

“Going forward we have the appetite for further growth, without losing customer focus; and keeping our positive relationships with our work providers. We will continue to train and develop our team in order to improve our service and efficiencies.

“It has been a challenging time, but we are now in a strong operational position to successfully manage our future plans and developments. Here’s to the next 15 years!”
