Ferrari opens new official body repairer in Solihull

Ferrari North Europe has opened a new official body repairer centre in Solihull, England.

The new workshop covers 2,300 sq m and has a vehicle inspection area with a dedicated ramp and viewing area for client consultation both pre- and post-repair, as well as 4x 2-post scissor lifts, a 4-wheel alignment ramp, an MOT bay, and a brake testing facility.

In addition, the new workshop has two dedicated panel repair bays, one of which features a chassis alignment jig and ramp for major structural repairs to ensure the vehicle is repaired to original factory standard and maintains the factory warranty.

It also has its own dedicated paint mixing room, and two paint booths with high and low level lighting and a scissor lift to ensure paint technicians can repaint every car to a factory standard.

The workshop is part of Individual Specialist Cars in Solihull, which is owned by brothers Amer and Zee Mirza. Both have been in the body repairer business for nearly 20 years, and have also been Ferrari clients for nearly 15 years.

They are also both fully certified Ferrari structural technicians and have completed the highest level of training courses offered by the Italian supercar brand for repairing and welding aluminium structures.

The opening of the Ferrari workshop in Solihull is set to create 14 new jobs.
