Alloy Wheel Repair
Alloy Wheel Repair
Tom Morris began servicing the automotive market in 1985 by offering a superior Teflon paint product to enhance and protect the painted finishes on all types of vehicles including aircraft and boats. His company also developed a complete line of support products for the automobile detailing operations and supplied detailing products to over 3,000 licensed operators throughout the United States, Canada, South Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Their products gained tremendous recognition through alliances with Coca-Cola, Pepsi, United Parcel Service, DHL Express, Avis, Hertz and Budweiser.
In 1999 Tom became aware of a very small but rapidly growing trend of repairing alloy wheels at the customer's location, rather than sending them off to be repaired by the traditional machine shops. He realized that if he could find a way to professionally repair the damage at the customer's location, he could beat the big machine shops at their own game. Through extensive research and development, he and his associates developed a method to make the repairs utilizing air tools, abrasives and paints.
Tom Morris founded Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, Inc. in 2000 and began offering licenses to operators across the United States. Wheel Repair Solutions International, Inc. was formed to begin franchising this exciting concept. WRSI's mobile technology was developed and improved within the network of its franchisees. The technology now includes equipment to straighten bent wheels and replicate CNC lathe lines when repairing machined alloy wheels. They also acquired a patent (6,347,444), which provides a process for maximizing the adhesion properties of the paint and clear coat when applied on bare metal. The company has applied for patents in the United States, the European Union, Canada and Australia to protect their Mobile Reconditioning Facility or shop on wheels and its unique wheel-straightening ability.
The company has grown to be the worldï¿½s largest mobile wheel repair company, and the only company in the world offering both mobile and remanufacturing services.
Q ï¿½ What are the costs involved in opening this business?
A. Like any other business start-up, you will have incidental expenses. These will include registering your corporation, obtaining insurance, traveling to the training center, etc. The cost of buying the franchise will include the franchise fee and start-up kit, which will include the Mobile Repair Facility of your choice. Depending on the size of the territory and/or package the initial fees will vary. However, after the initial package costs are determined, there are no other start-up fees paid to AWRS.
