Pagid celebrates 1,000th Proud to Fit garage in the UK

By autotech-nath on July 20, 2017

Pagid has given its seal of approval to the 1,000th UK garage in its Proud to Fit concept. Merityre Andover was the latest member to join the scheme, and will now benefit from the associated branding and training that comes with it. Once strict quality criteria are met, and the Pagid and IMI Accredited training is complete a Proud to Fit garage will graduate to become a Pagid Professional garage.

Sylvie Layec, Sales Director, IAM at TMD Friction, commented:

“Pagid Proud to Fit has proven to be a hugely successful concept, with the UK’s best garages gaining the badge of honour, and Merityre Andover is precisely the type of workshop we created the programme for.”

“With 24 locations under the brand, Andover may be the 1,000th garage to become a Proud to Fit, but 23 other Merityre locations have also joined the concept.”

Dene Arnold, Director at Merityre, commented: Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 17.19.53

“We’ve been using Pagid for a few years now, with 90% of our brake work using Pagid parts. We’re focused on giving our customers a quality service with quality products, so Pagid has always been the obvious choice. After speaking to Pagid about our training needs, we decided to sign up to Proud to Fit.”

“One person from each of our 24 garages is taking part in the training, and the results have been superb; not just for our mechanics, but for our company. We look forward to completing the training to earn the Pagid Professional status.”

Pagid will continue to collaborate with Merityre’s 24 locations, and the 976 other workshops nationwide in the Proud to Fit concept, and to help more garages graduate to Pagid Professional status. Independent garage owners in the UK can find out more about Pagid Proud to Fit and Pagid Professional, and apply to join, by visiting Proud to Fit
