CCE/Fix Auto Rochdale Wins Options Coaches Contract

CCE / Fix Auto Rochdale has won a prestigious new contract with Options Coaches in Rochdale to paint a brand new coach in readiness for use by Blackburn FC’s First team.  There had been a suggestion by the supplier of the coach that it would be sent 250 miles South to their preferred paint shop.  However, based on the success of their long-term relationship with Phil Ewbank and his team, Options decided to take the local option and to offer the business to Fix Auto CCE.

Paul Stone of Options Coaches and his son Luke provided an image of a similar coach with a multicolour blended paint spec, a colour scheme was agreed and work commenced on stripping and prepping the coach without delay.  Lee Ewbank, Business Development Manager at Fix Auto CEE, secured a deal with Cunbar Automotive paint supplies who also agreed to provided technical support where needed.

The coach was stripped, prepped, primed and painted within five working days with extra time to unmask, rebuild and complete the final detail.  The end result was outstanding.

“We made a major investment in this deluxe coach in order to secure the contract and to maintain the long and happy association we have had with the Club for the past 34 years. We needed a bodyshop that could provide us with the highest quality finish to complete the job,” explained Paul Stone, Director, Options Coaches.  “We were certainly not disappointed with what Fix Auto CEE achieved.  It’s a superb job which reinforces the quality of the product and service we can offer to Blackburn Rovers.”

A big thank you to all the team that made this possible including Steve Hulme Painter, Chris Pickersgill Painter, Karl Smith Prepper, Gary Millard Head of Transport, Rick Cummings and Julian Whitehead Strip and Re-build team and Lee Ewbank, Business Development Manager.  Also to the Cunbar Automotive Paint team.
