Smart Techs Business Launch

At DA Techs we are excited to announce the expansion of our business with the launch of our new sister company, Smart Techs.
It is a privilege to be able to take a small but successful business and join forces. Based in Adlington, our business expansion is co-owned by DA Techs bosses Jamie Baxter and Phil Barnard along with bodywork specialist Andrew Wren who has had 14 years’ experience in vehicle bodywork repairs.
Smart Techs is a specialist business focused on car body work, repairing minor scruffs, scratches, and dents. Our range of services appeals to a wide-range customer base, including individual private car owners, hobbyists with specialist vehicles, through to management and trade repairs.
Smart Techs represent an investment of more than £50,000 and we are anticipating that our new business will replicate the success of DA Techs. In 2018, DA Techs saw an unprecedented demand for wheel repair services seeing a 200% increase in sales after just two years in operation and are now repairing over 700 wheels per month. Therefore, in December 2018 we moved into new larger premises in Adlington to keep up with the demand.
Smart Techs is based at the same industrial park in Adlington, moving into the unit previously occupied by DA Techs. Having both businesses combined allows us to offer dealers and private customers a joint facility which will result in a faster turnaround and a more efficient overall service. Together in our group we now have a team of 12 highly trained specialist motor-trade technicians
At Smart Techs, we offer an efficient and cost-effective service without compromising on quality. As well as repairing minor scruffs, scratches and dents, Smart Techs will provide car detailing and paint correction services, which is popular with the trade industry for car sales. We will carry out larger cosmetic repairs where whole panels may need to be replaced, repaired and sprayed. We can also provide accident management services to assist customers in dealing with insurers, hire cars, and injury claims throughout the process from vehicle collection to completion.
DA Techs represents everything we expect Smart Techs can become. The combined effect of both businesses operating on the same site will be significantly greater than our individual operations and this synergy will take both ventures from strength to strength. It has been less than three years since we were working in Bolton and had the original business idea for DA Techs, and we can’t believe how much has happened since. We’ve learned a lot in a short amount of time and the support and encouragement we have received from the North West motor industry have been phenomenal. Want to know more? Get in touch!
