A CHORLEY based wheel repair business has announced a new expansion, taking over four new units at Adlington Business Park.

DA Techs, which was founded four years ago, decided on the expansion after the company recorded annual sales of over £1 million and now occupies over 10,000 square feet of space, which has been filled with state of the art machinery which will assist with a range of repair and refurbishment services.

Lockdown provided an opportunity for the upgrade to the company's services, while the move was partly funded by government grants for digital innovation.

DA Techs director Jamie Baxter said: “We know what a pain it can be when your vehicle needs more than one type of service, but you have to go from place-to-place sorting each individually.

"We wanted to get rid of those headaches for our customers.

“So, we used the periods of relative downtime that lockdown presented us with to roll up our sleeves and create a solution.

"With all the services they need in one location with a modern, professional set-up, we are saving time and unnecessary faff for our customers.

"This service is completely unrivalled in the region.”

The company says that the expansion means it can now provide all customers, ranging from large fleet providers, car dealers and car supermarkets to private clients, body shops and independent garages across the North West, with a one-stop-shop for bodywork repairs, alloy wheel refurbishment and tyre treatments.

The firm has also used lockdown as an opportunity to rebrand itself, changing the acronym in its name to stand for Diverse Automotive Technicians and upgrading its website.

Mr Baxter said: “2020 wasn’t a bad year for us by any means, even against the backdrop of swirling coronavirus uncertainty, DA Techs refurbished over 18,000 wheels and now has 26 highly trained staff to its name.

“Demand did rise and fall with the changing of various restrictions, but we are certain that it will bounce back.

"And when it does, we’ll be ready.”
