First UK garage signs up with Euro Repar Car Service

Published:  11 October, 2017

Nicholson’s Stalham Engineering, based in Norfolk , has become the first British business to become a  Euro Repar Car Service Centre.

Nathan Culley from Nicholson’s said:  “We’re a well-established family business with a great local reputation. People know us, and they trust us. Now, they also know we have the backing of a great European network, with all the advantages and opportunities that brings us. It can only help us to grow, and provide an even better local service.”

A family business established in 1938, the business offers a range of automotive, agricultural and garden machinery services including new and used sales, servicing and repairs, as well as full garage forecourt facilities.

Euro Repar Car Service, supported operationally by PSA Groupe, announced its arrival in the UK in April, and aims to add around 600 UK independent garages to its network by 2020.

It currently works with more  than 2,500 facilities across France, Spain, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands.   The minimum requirement is two manned ramps, and a separate reception.

Colin Start, head of marketing for parts and service for the PSA Groupe said: “We believe that success relies on our partner garages retaining the personality, reputation and trust they have in the local area. Combining that with the wealth of experience and support we can offer will help them take the next step.”
