Aftermarket leader collaborating with Gulf Motor Company to launch
12 new service and collision repair centres
“This new partnership in the Middle East demonstrates our commitment to growth through rapid expansion in thriving global markets,” says Steve Leal.
BLAINVILLE (QC), 18 August 2022: Mondofix, Inc. dba “Fix Network World” announces a new partnership in the Middle East as it continues to expand its presence around the world.
A global leader in automotive aftermarket services, Mondofix confirms its strategic partnership with the Middle East’s respected business group, Gulf Motor Company (GMC), part of United Motors Group (UMG). The collaboration makes GMC the exclusive partner for Fix Auto in Saudi Arabia and the greater GCC countries. The Fix Auto brand operates in more than 20 countries.
Starting in Saudi Arabia, six collision centres and six quick service centres will open, with the collision repair service named Fix Auto Collision, and the mechanical service and repair centres named Fix Auto Service.
“This new partnership in the Middle East demonstrates our commitment to growth through rapid expansion in thriving global markets,” Steve Leal, president and CEO of Mondofix, Inc. dba Fix Network World, said. “It also takes place in a landmark year when the Fix Auto brand celebrates 30 years. This iconic brand was created based on a very simple idea – to unite a fragmented aftermarket industry so body shop owners can experience the power of a network while owning and operating their centres independently.”
As part of the agreement, GMC will extensively renovate and equip its facilities and retrain its existing staff to meet the high standards of Fix Network World. The locations are scheduled to be operational by Q4 2022.
“Over the years, we have been searching for the right partner to introduce our successful franchise development strategy in the Middle East,” Leal said. “GMC stood out as the obvious choice not only for their strong reputation, but also as their business goals align strongly with ours.”
“This is an important time for motorists in the KSA and the GCC countries,” Hassan Al Shamrani, Group CEO, GMC, said. “In choosing to sign this agreement with Fix Network World, we are partnering with a trusted and high-quality brand recognized around the world, that will ensure drivers and owners in Saudi Arabia and the GCC countries will be in safe hands whenever their car needs service or repairs.”
