BSI Kitemark® certification continues to help Peacock Garage build a sustainable business
Kitemark certification delivers tangible commercial benefits to Chester-based Peacock Garage over the four years it has been certified in garage services and will continue to do so as it continues to maintain certification to PAS 80. Peacock Garage was the first garage in Chester to gain the prestigious Kitemark for garage services setting itself apart from competitors by demonstrating transparent and efficient customer service. Dave Holroyd, who has over 20 years experience in mechanical repairs commented: “The Kitemark scheme has helped me implement the correct systems to run my business more efficiently. The scheme brings so many benefits to a garage business, but in particular for us it has improved our consistency of service, which has given our business a major boost. In addition staff, who were dubious at first, have quickly got on board with new working practices and they feel a joint sense of achievement and pride in the garage. The key thing is, when customers come to us, they are confident that they will receive a reliable and trusted service.” “The internal benefits alone are helping us to keep hold of existing customers and attract new ones through word of mouth. Every aspect of the business is documented and recorded. This protects both the garage and the motorist. Moreover, the Kitemark is creating new opportunities for us as a garage business. Competition in Chester is pretty rife and the credibility of the Kitemark brand gives us an edge and demonstrates that we are working to a recognised industry standard. “ Peacock Garage strategy is to continue to attract customers and become the recognised benchmark for its competitors. Scott Hanney, Business Development Manager, BSI added: “Peacock Garage should be rightly proud of this ongoing certification. The management of a garage business should be able to view the adoption of PAS 80 as a business investment. The certification provides a blueprint for business improvement and providing evidence of corporate responsibility on behalf of work providers, retail customers and vehicle users.” - ENDS - Notes to Editors For media information Tracey Treanor, Chicane Tel: +44 (0) 07789 078710 Email: email@example.com About BSI Group BSI Group is a global independent business services organization that develops standards-based solutions to improve management practices and promote innovation.
