AW Repair Group has announced that the Steer Group will acquire all 12 of its East Midlands-based sites.
The acquisition takes the combined operation of the Steer Group to 55 sites with 1,000 staff and the capability to repair 85,000 vehicles per annum.
Richard Steer, Chief Executive said: “Our strategic focus remains on successfully operated and established regional businesses which grow our reach and further increases our repair capacity.
“AW Repair Group has invested heavily across its whole estate, achieving key manufacturer approvals and insurance company relationships. They have also made significant investments in their people with a clear focus on bringing forward a new generation of talent through their Training and Apprentice Academy.
“In addition, AW Repair Group is recognised for pioneering sustainability throughout the repair process and achieved the coveted PAS2060 Carbon Neutral Standard across all their locations. AW was also an early adopter of the EV repair capacity with every one of their colleagues receiving EV Ready training. These are all key areas that complement our strategy and vision for the future.”
AW Repair Group’s founder Andrew Walsh said: “The time is right for a combined force to drive the industry forward in the next stage of vehicle repair and technology.”
Walsh will remain associated with the group in a consultancy role, while the 200-plus workforce will remain in their roles.Tweet
