Macclesfield-based Craig Hodson, has become the 100th technician to be trained at a recently-established vehicle repair centre run by mobile small and medium area repair technique (SMART) specialists Revive! Auto Innovations.

Craig is joining Revive!’s highly successful Manchester team, run by husband-and-wife team David and Celia Baxendale. Craig said: “As well as the training I’ve received at the Revive! training centre, I’ve had three months of on-the-road training with Simon Homer, the senior technician at Revive! Manchester, who has been in the SMART repair trade for over 20 years. So, I feel incredibly confident and can’t wait to be out on the road making people’s vehicles look like new again.I’d like to thank Celia and David, and Revive!, for giving me this really exciting opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Craig, who will be targeting potential customers in the Congleton and Macclesfield areas, is the second technician in the last twelve months that the Manchester division of the Revive! franchise network has trained into a fully-qualified SMART repair technician, following Ashley Wain who joined the team last year.
