ationwide Autocentres has increased its network significantly following the purchase of sites from Kwik Fit, the fast fit chain. The move is part of the firm's drive for fleet business, but may also enable the company to contest for authorized repair work from the vehicle manufacturers. Nationwide Autocentres, the independent garage chain, has acquired 54 outlets from fast fit giant Kwik Fit. The centers represented around half of Kwik Fit's Stop n Steer network, which focuses on more technical work, and will increase Nationwide's network from 141 to 195 outlets.
