After a new-found focus on the retail market, and an unprecedented period of financial growth, vehicle repair specialists, Revive! High Wycombe has been nominated for a prestigious award at the coveted Thames Valley Business and Community Awards.
Indeed, Revive! High Wycombe, led by franchise owner Byron Lindsay, has been shortlisted in The SME (small and medium-sized enterprises) of The Year category, an award that celebrates organisations which possess an excellent financial record, provide a unique service to customers and have had a positive impact in the local area.
Revive! High Wycombe impressed across all areas, but it was the firm’s excellent financial performance and unique service offering which particularly caught the attention of the esteemed judging panel.
In 2021, Revive! High Wycombe bounced back from the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic by turning over £387k – a new company record. This success motivated Byron to take his team to the next level, so in 2022, he made the decision to focus not on fleets and dealerships, but to offer his repair services to the general public.
This decision has paid dividends for Byron and the team, as the firm enjoyed its best ever Q1 earlier this year, bringing in £102k in sales. Revive! High Wycombe is also on track to pull in excess of £225k in retail sales alone this year, which would represent a 33 per cent increase from last year’s retail sales.
This success can be attributed to Revive! High Wycombe’s unique approach to vehicle repairs. Indeed, far from being a traditional bodyshop, Revive! High Wycombe offer a mobile service for motorists.
One of the firm’s four technicians travels to the customer’s home or place of work, and almost always complete the repair within a few hours. Meanwhile, for larger or more complex jobs, the firm also boasts a rapid repair centre based in High Wycombe, where the customer’s vehicle is picked up by a technician, repaired at the facility within hours, before finally being dropped off at the customer’s home.
Byron Lindsay, owner at Revive! High Wycombe commented: “I am delighted with our nomination, and to represent the SMART vehicle repair industry at such a high-profile event is a real honour.
“Our decision to focus on the retail market has been a huge part of our growth. I’d like to thank my team for their efforts in helping us to get this position. We are looking forward to growing the team and business as we continue to serve customers in the Thames Valley area.
“It goes without saying that we are living in challenging financial times, by by being nominated alongside other forward-thinking and successful businesses for this award – it goes to show that our company, and the wider Thames Valley economy is well and truly alive and kicking.”
