Car Craft has added 11 independent businesses to the group, taking the network’s total number of shops across Australia to 108. The group’s growth is expected to continue after Car Craft directors unanimously agreed at a meeting in July to continue the strategy that has allowed the group to grow by 25 per cent in the last 24 months.
“The expansion in NSW, Victoria [and] the Northern Territory has been very encouraging, and with SA, QLD and WA also adding to the group’s footprint in their well-established markets, the ability to offer all our work providers the same outstanding service across the country is peace of mind,” said Car Craft General Manager Peter McMahon.
“This will not be growth for growth’s sake – we will continue to expand at a steady pace, inviting like-minded business owners to join Australia’s largest independently owned smash repair network and enjoy the benefits of being part of a group they own.”
