With 20 years of excellent service and considerable growth behind them, Advance Body Repairs are expanding their business and branching out from their base in Fengate, Peterborough. And in choosing Corby in Northamptonshire as the site of their latest repairs workshop, ABR are showing serious intent in providing services for the wider area.
A significant and growing division of Lawrence David Limited, ABR have been repairing and refurbishing both trailers and commercial vehicles for some of the biggest names in the industry and have seen demand surge in recent years. And with big companies demanding faster turnarounds on marketing redesigns, ABR have sought to meet the demand for quality work at a healthy pace.
From accident repairs, height increases and repaints to full body shot blasts, new curtain installations and new doors, the new Advance Body Repairs site in Corby is modern and adaptable for an industry that demands the best. With 8 double bays, including a prep bay and a brand new paint oven, ABR are set to supply businesses in Corby and the surrounding area with every service their vehicles need.
Lawrence David Commercial Director, Chris Curzon said:-
“Advanced Body Repairs can offer all aspects of maintenance. MOT’s, brake tests and general servicing. And in recent years, the business has grown to provide repairs for curtains or rebuilding a trailer completely. It’s thanks to our attitude and extensive expertise that we are able to support a second ABR in Corby. We can make and fix anything and we’ll continue to do so for years to come!”
Trailer repairs demand a certain area in which to work, manoeuvre and park and so Advanced Body Repairs have set about designing a new bespoke covered workshop that can meet the increasing demand from hauliers. With a site that’s large and adaptable to suit a range of needs, ABR are fully prepared to accommodate double the amount of repair and refurbishment work, resulting in faster turnarounds without a loss in quality or safety.
Aside from the bespoke longer doors for larger trailer access, the first considerations during design of the new site were two 30 metre span overhead cranes and a deep pit for under chassis repairs. Enabling the expert team to work on trailers of all sizes, even the longer 15.65 metre trailers, ABR are making all the right moves to entice new customers and reaffirm existing ones.
Demonstrating a willingness to expand and evolve even during financially restrictive times, Lawrence David Limited and Advanced Body Repairs are fulfilling their promise to lead the industry and build upon a 40-year history.
The new Advanced Body Repair site opened on Geddington Road, Corby on 1st September and makes for the best possible choice for businesses and hauliers in the local area, from Corby to Kettering and Market Harborough.
Undertaking expert trailer repairs and manufacturing for businesses around the Corby area, Advanced Body Repairs offer:
- Full chassis and body shot blast
- New curtains
