The owner of a new £100,000 fast fit centre in Helston is promising motorists a revolution in automotive care, after officially opening his forecourt to the public. Justin Roberton, who already runs successful operations in Truro, Bodmin and St Austell, is looking forward to welcoming motorists to a new centre in Clodgey Lane, Helston. The red ribbon was cut with HiQ's retail director Juergen Titz on Saturday (9th) and both men predicted a bright future in the town.
The centre features modern, award winning branding and state-of-the-art facilities, even including a baby changing unit and a children's play facility. Justin said: "The Helston centre is twice the size of our Truro site and promises to be very successful. It is situated on the main Helston road, boasts a car park of 30 spaces, and has its own MOT bay in place. "The future is certainly looking bright. There will be new jobs created and we're all just looking forward to getting started in the town." Centre manager Alfred Bratton is taking charge of the store alongside three other technicians, and Justin revealed that trade had already been brisk. "We've had a really encouraging start to life in Helston. We are already trading on a par with our other sites and we can only see things getting busier from here on. "The staff alongside me are great and their local knowledge and expertise is already proving to be vital." Retail director Juergen Titz said the combination of a national brand, led by a local entrepreneur like Justin, promised to be a successful one. "To open another centre in Cornwall is a massive coup for everyone at HiQ and we applaud Justin for his hard work and entrepreneurial spirit in creating a fourth centre in Helston. "The store looks fantastic and strengthens our position as a fast fit network to be sure of, and to trust."
