28th July 2014

When it comes to diversifying a business to meet the rapidly changing market, there’s no better example than Selsia’s approved repairer in Coventry, XL Accident Repair Centre. The company has recently launched its new rapid repair, training and conferencing facility under the Eyebox brand.

With over 40% of accident repair work now able to be completed in one day, the demand for products, services and training is growing quickly. This is why the company has invested a considerable amount of money in the new 18,000 square foot facility just off junction 3 on the M6 near Coventry. From the moment you walk into the Eyebox centre, everything looks and feels very modern and the facility exudes an air of professionalism and reassurance.

In addition to a 13,000 square foot workshop, complete with built in multiple training pods and two spraybooths, Eyebox is fully equipped with four meeting, training and conferencing rooms totalling almost 2,500 square feet. These state of the art, fully air conditioned rooms feature the very latest in audio visual support facilities and are now being regularly used by the industry’s leading organisations including vehicle manufacturers, trade associations and ATA training for vehicle damage assessors. And as no training or conference is complete without quality catering, delegates can also enjoy freshly prepared on site breakfasts, lunches and dinners from a choice of menus, so there is no need to leave the building.

Commenting on XL Accident Repair Centre’s latest diverse business venture, Managing Director Rob Ally commented “like any forward thinking business, we don’t rest on our laurels. We are already approved by the leading vehicle manufacturers and our Kitemark accredited workshop is always running at full capacity. However, we have been carefully watching and evaluating the growing demand for rapid repairs along with training and conferencing. Eyebox is an extremely flexible facility and lends itself perfectly to a multitude of theoretical and practical training for any type of organisation associated with this industry. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we started to attract organisations from outside the accident repair industry, as well. After all, who wouldn’t want to be trained in a state of the art facility like Eyebox?”

Selsia Marketing Director, Neil Marcus commented “XL Accident Repair Centre represents everything which we believe marketing oriented repairers should be about. Our business development within the growing fleet sector in particular is accelerating and it’s always reassuring for the Selsia team and our clients to know that we have extremely professional, forward thinking repairers on our network like XL Accident Repair Centre. We wish them every success for the future”.
