New Fix AU Partner Also Joins Novus In Global First

Fix Network Australia has announced that James and Erin Robertson have become the network’s latest franchise partners. In a global first, the pair will join the Novus Glass and Fix Auto Networks simultaneously.

“Based out of Gladstone [Queensland], with an illustrious background in the automotive industry, James and Erin Robertson have steered the success of one of Gladstone’s top automotive dealerships, which is fast approaching its 50th anniversary in business,” said Fix Network Australia. “Their decision to expand the business portfolio by acquiring Lowry’s Auto Body Repairs in 2021 underscores their progressive approach to the industry.

According to Fix Network Australia, the Robertsons’ experience with a global brand in a franchise environment made Fix Network “a perfect fit” for the collision repair operation, while the opportunity to integrate automotive glass services through acquiring a Novus Glass franchise adds value to the business and its customers.

“We are excited to bring the high standards of Fix Auto and Novus Glass to Gladstone,” said James. “We always strive to provide our community with outstanding motor vehicle services. Adding these franchises will ensure we can offer our customers easy access to more of their motoring needs.”

Stuart Faid, Fix Network Regional Vice President and Head of Business Asia, Australia and New Zealand, said the Robertsons “embody the entrepreneurial spirit that drives our network forward”.

“Their extensive experience and forward-thinking approach perfectly complement Fix Network’s mission to support and empower independently owned automotive businesses,” he added.

“The addition of Novus Glass Gladstone and Fix Auto Gladstone to the Fix Network family is a significant stride for Fix Network in central Queensland. We are excited to bring our brands to the Gladstone region with James and Erin’s leadership, which will undoubtedly bring fresh perspectives and industry-leading practices to the network. We look forward to working together moving forward.”
