Eco Repair Systems, a leading supplier of repair equipment for the vehicle body repair industry, is pleased to announce a new training partnership with FMG Repair Services, one of the leading and largest comprehensive automotive repairers in the UK, with 65 repair sites nationwide. The partnership will see Eco Repair Systems supply its latest plastic repair equipment to the FMG Repair Services bodyshop group and for use in its dedicated IMI Approved technical training centre. The training centre will provide plastic repair training to the FMG Repair Services network and externally to Bodyshops in the industry who purchase equipment from Eco Repair Systems.
