2014

Pilot Program: Collision Repair Centre (12 months)


CEO Mario Dimovski undertook a 12-month project by placing himself in a collision repair facility that repaired, on average, 100 collision claims per week.
 
The business had developed a culture of favouring new components rather than repairing damaged plastic parts. This meant they were absorbing a higher repair cost per vehicle, and producing a large volume of automotive plastic waste. The aim of the Pilot Program was to assess what percentage of these damaged plastic parts, such as bumper bars and headlights, could be repaired in-house by having a certified Plastic Repair Technician onsite.
 
Mario Dimovski worked with the owner of the business, and various departments within the collision centre, on the best methods to maximise the project’s potential, whilst minimising any production or processing impacts.
 
Within a couple of weeks, the business started to repair close to 75% of all damaged bumper claims, not to mention improved turnaround times by having the repairs done on-site. 
 
The end result delivered a range of benefits no-one had anticipated, it was a huge success and lay the foundation to build the Plastfix business model.

2015

Australia, New Zealand, and China Research Gathering Tour


With the pilot complete, Plastfix was invited to take part in the 5 to 10 Australia/New Zealand tour, an extension of the 2015 IBIS Australia conference.


The Plastfix agenda was to better understand how the industry was going to address the growing use of automotive plastic parts, and additionally to address the skill shortage of qualified plastic repair technicians. 


Plastfix wanted to learn how the wider industry (comprising of collision repair owners, industry bodies, training organisations, part suppliers, and insurance companies) perceived automotive plastic repairs, and what programs were in place to cater for this growing trend.

2016 - Feb

Plastfix Launched in Australian Market


After nearly two years of planning, Plastfix launched by offering a full range of our own custom developed designs, training modules, speciality tools, and materials. We soon realised that due to a lack of skilled personnel, the collision industry faced the challenge of training current staff to repairs plastics. We then moved our attention to a new business model and started developing our own team of technicians to service the industry. A price or labour based pricing matrix allowed Plastfix to develop, manage, and train technicians to service its customer’s needs.

2016 - June

Secured Exclusive Contract with Leading Panel Group

Plastfix is meeting with new partners who could facilitate the Plastfix model within their local market or network. On the agenda for 2017 New Zealand, China, Dubai and the United States, with 2018 seeing Plastfix booked to visit Germany, and the United Kingdom.
