The alternative offering to vehicle brand networks is made up of 17,500 MRA (approved repair mechanics), 12,000 of which operate under a brand name.
In total there are 35,000 points of sale (repair shops, resellers, distributors).
These firms are not related in any way with the vehicle manufacturer and do not therefore represent any brands other than their own or that of their grouping.
Fast fitters developed alongside auto centres and at the same time, during the first oil crisis of 1973. On this occasion, groups such as Speedy and Midas grew by specialising in routine repairs such as exhaust replacements.
