After a career in the packaging industry culminating in his most recent role as Sales Director, Scott Christie and wife Alison have set up an alloy wheel refurbishing site in Cumbernauld. The Wheel Specialist was recommended to them by relatives who operate the Newcastle branch, who in turn joined the nationwide brand themselves after being recommended by friends at the Fareham branch, what better testimonial could you ask for?
TWS started to offer the franchised business opportunity in 2007 after over 40 years at the forefront of paint application and after recognising the demand for people looking to spruce up tired looking alloy wheels or for those looking for a custom look to enhance their vehicle, they started an alloy wheel service over 20 years ago. After continued growth Glasgow North is the fifteenth site to set up a local service operated by local people.
Scott, Alison and their team of technicians have joined forces to launch the latest technology and range of finishes to car owners in Glasgow North and the surrounding area. Scott, having decided on a career change, will bring his sales and marketing acumen to the business while Alison already operates a retail business in a very customer service driven environment. Using their combined knowledge and having a national brand behind the new venture means that people in Glasgow North have the opportunity to experience TWS and its incredibly high standards that have helped the business grow, with branches from Inverness to the south coast of England all going from strength to strength.
Like some other TWS owners Scott came across the business opportunity after deciding he wanted a change of career and ‘’The Wheel Specialist became a real option” commented Scott. Once he had researched the potential in Glasgow North and met with Neill and Ginny Murphy, co-founders of TWS, the business model was so attractive to Scott and Alison that they decided to join up and set up right here in Glasgow North.
“We are delighted that Scott and Alison have joined the success story that is TWS over the last five years, our customers really appreciate the professional and personal service that we offer with the highest standards at real value for money” commented Ginny Murphy, “having a fourth site in Scotland is something that we always planned and now the whole country can benefit from our bespoke service” she added.
Customers can call in to the new site located at 21-23 Napier Court, Wardpark North, Cumbernauld, Glasgow, G68 0LG for an instant quote or log on to www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk for an online quote. TWS offer a range of colours, finishes and diamond cutting that can make alloy wheels look as good as new. Once a customer decides on what look they want they receive a same day service in the majority of cases and drive away with fully reconditioned wheels.
Scott and Alison offer a service to the motor trade with main dealers now able to offer a custom service for new and used vehicles and satisfy the growing demand for wheels that can make a bulk standard model look that little bit different.
