The HiQ fast fit network is celebrating another coup after luring a Stockport entrepreneur to its ever expanding network of fast fit centres.

New franchisee Leslie Brady has teamed up with one of the nation's most respected and well known fast fit brands to open a forecourt for motorists in the Conway Centre.

Leslie's HiQ venture, operated under Fleet Care Maintenance, offers full mechanical services to Stockport motorists wanting a revolution in car care.

More importantly, it will create a number of jobs for fast fit technicians in the town and will provide the perfect place for drivers to receive award winning automotive care.

The newly re-branded site offers MOT and servicing and in addition to selling and fitting tyres, the centre boasts new wheel diagnostic technology that will help vehicles last the harsh and often expensive winter months.

Leslie said: "Becoming a franchisee for HiQ is great because of the national familiarity of the brand. The expertise is already there and the training programme in place allows you to get trading quickly.

"There is a lot to learn, especially as we have taken HiQ on to work in conjunction with Fleet Care but we are confident that the groundwork we have put in will drive success."

HiQ's regional franchise manager Harold Stephenson said: "This is a major coup for us at HiQ. We are expanding our network of centres and the north-west region has been a key area to target for us.

"To now boast a centre in Stockport is ideal and to add a businessman like Leslie to our list of partners is vital for us.

"The deal is the culmination of a great deal of hard work by all parties concerned, so we are delighted to now put pen to paper and welcome Leslie to the network."
