News : Chesterfield-based Windscreen Company to Create 60 Jobs
Jan 31, 2014 -- Admiral Group has signed a three-and-a-half year preferred supplier agreement with Auto Windscreens that is set to create over 60 new jobs at the UK windscreen repair company.
Commencing from January 1, Auto Windscreens, which is based in Chesterfield, will handle 50per cent of the insurer’s motoring customers’ glass repair and replacement needs, upping previous work volumes by an estimated 45,000.
Nigel Davies, Managing Director at Auto Windscreens, said: "Admiral’s continued confidence in our high quality service delivery is undoubtedly the key to this prestigious win.
"They have had faith in our customer-focussed proposition right from the outset and we have forged a mutually beneficial relationship over the past two years."
Nigel adds: "This renewed contract is down to everyone at Auto Windscreens playing their part. We have been recruiting in anticipation of this announcement, building our workforce further and training new technicians – ready for what we expect to be another fruitful year for the company."
Between March and August 2013, Auto Windscreens hit its target to employ 100 new staff owing to rising repair workloads and has already embarked on a wide-scale recruitment drive to ensure consistent service levels are comfortably maintained.
It plans to appoint 50 technicians, who regardless of experience will undergo specialised Auto Windscreens’ training. Additional contact centre advisors positions are now also being advertised.
Auto Windscreens is owned by Trifords Limited, part of the Markerstudy Group.
