Contract boost for Coachworks


Two Japanese car manufacturers have appointed Falmouth Coachworks as approved repairers for their vehicles.

Last year Falmouth Coachworks was reappointed as Cornwall’s only BMW-approved body and paint shop centre, and now Suzuki and Mitsubishi Motors have also both selected the company as approved repairers for their vehicles.

And, despite the recession, demand for the Falmouth company’s services is such that it has had to recruit an additional painter, raising the total number of staff to 12.

“We have had to invest heavily in equipment and staff training programmes to satisfy Suzuki and Mitsubishi to meet their exacting standards,” said operations director Martin May.
