Gemini UK announce further expansion

Gemini Accident Repair Centres, have announced a further new acquisition in the UK,

They have purchased the Former Research Garage Bodyshop in Nuneaton in Warwickshire, The research Garage Group; own 3 Car dealerships supplying Fiat, Peugeot, Alfa Romeo and Arbarth cars across Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

The Bodyshop is a 15,000 square foot Standalone site, just a couple of miles away from the Fiat and Alfa dealerships. The site was purpose built to a high standard, and fits well with Gemini’s intelligent repair processes.

All 16 staff have been transferred with the sale, helping to secure their futures, by joining the Gemini Team, the site has been purchased to further support our insurer partners requirements.

This further expansion strengthens the Gemini Group to 7 sites and is the 2nd site purchase in 2 months, adding to the Newport south wales business in December 2013. This gives the group the ability to cover Shrewsbury across to Leicester and down to Bristol and South wales.

Gemini  Group continues to grow by delivering new solutions and building transparent relationships in accident repair to its key clients.

Season’s Greetings from Gemini!

It’s been a great year for Gemini ARC UK!

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2013; our customers, suppliers and the fantastic Gemini ARC team. We are constantly looking for new ways to improve our service and customer satisfaction – this remains our key focus for 2014 and beyond!

New Call Centre
In January we opened our new call centre. Sian and Kim have been very busy taking calls and instructing our growing number of repair centres. We feel that this service has had a great impact on all of our sites and improved the service we offer our customers. We would like to thank Sian and Kim for their hard work and always having a smile on their face!

AGS Gumball Rally!
In June Gemini directors Dave Sargeant and Tim Hopkins took part in the AGS Gumball Rally and raised a whopping £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Research and St. Richards Hospice. The AGS Gumball Rally is an annual rally from Brentwood, Essex to Cannes, South of France. Armed with only £500 Dave and Tim had to find a car that would last the journey. They managed to buy a Golf Cabriolet with their small budget and with a huge help from the Halesowen site the car was looking great and running like a dream! After all the preparation it came down to 4 days of driving, covering over 1,080 miles on a coastal route to Cannes. A huge thank you to all the sponsors and for the donations – great achievement!

New Netigate System
In September, we installed our new Netigate system. This system is a fantastic way to help us monitor and improve our service through comments and scores given by our customers. We are looking forward to continuing to use it in 2014! There has definitely been a bit of friendly competition between the sites!

We’re Expanding!
We are pleased to announce that Gemini UK have branched out into South Wales! Our latest site in Newport, Gwent is now open for business! The new team are doing a fantastic job and we are excited for what 2014 has to bring for our newest location.

Gumball Rally – June 2013

At the end of June Gemini’s, Dave Sargeant and Tim Hopkins were racing cars instead of fixing them. The AGS Gumball Rally is a yearly rally from Brentwood, Essex to Cannes, South of France. Armed with only £500 Dave and Tim had to find a car that would last the journey and ensure all the money they raised went to their designated charities.

They managed to buy a Golf Cabriolet and with a week to go, they had the finished car ready for a test drive. None of this would have happened if it wasn’t for the hard work of the Halesown Gemini site. Preparing the car and making it road worthy, they did Gemini proud with the new and improved Golf Cabriolet looking amazing, now white with the sponsor’s logos on it. After all the preparation it came down to 4 days of driving, covering over 1,080 miles on a coastal route to Cannes. All the hard work paid off as they raised over £3,000!

Well done Tim and Dave and thank you to all our sponsors, who supported us and helped raise the money that we donated to Macmillan and St. Richards Hospice.

Introducing our new site in Tewkesbury!

We have some fantastic news to share! This week, Gemini open their newest site in Tewkesbury. We are very pleased to add this new location and are excited for the journey it brings.

AGS Gumball Rally

In 2 weeks our very own Dave and Tim will be taking part in the AGS Gumball Rally. The guys had a budget of only £500 to buy a suitable car for the journey, they chose a Golf Cabriolet which has now been painted white and sponsor’s logos added – it looks great! Dave and Tim will be driving for 4 days, starting off in Brentwood, Essex and finishing in Cannes, South of France.

The Gemini team are hoping to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support. This very worthy charity improves the lives of people affected by cancer. They provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support and push for better cancer care.

They have already raised over £800! You can donate to Dave and Tim’s Gumball fundraiser here – www.justgiving.com/geminidavetimgumball
