A Birmingham fast fit centre is boasting a new addition to its forecourt with the acquisition of an experienced tyre technician.

Matthew Little, aged 39, has left automotive industry rivals Kwik Fit to join HiQ Erdington in Bromford Lane.

Matthew has more than 20 years experience in the fast fit sector and is already impressing in his role with HiQ.

HiQ Erdington's operations manager John Johnston said: "HiQ Erdington has celebrated a successful first six months of trading and our acquisition of Matthew is further evidence of this."

The announcement is further good news for the centre, which is also about to employ another new member of staff to cope with an increased level of business.

Matthew said: "I am delighted to be here at HiQ. I know a lot about the brand and their values and principles are something that I relate to and believe in.

"I have spent 16 years with Kwik Fit, but this new challenge is particularly exciting and is one I look forward to grasping with both hands."
